Hi WA family, previously while I would have chosen to put a internal link in my article just with the url the url would just come up as a link, now the whole think comes up as a great big snippet including the feature image. Is this maybe because of the changes on our platform? Somebody else noticed this. Not sure to leave it like that with a great big snippet in my article. What is your opinion?

Thanks for your insight, Jude

Sounds like a slip of the mouse Jude.
I am guessing you have already tried to reposition the link again.

Sometimes it may be better to place the link in a caption under the photo.
Michael.

Hey Jude, try to go to Settings >Reading

There’s an option there whether you want to display your latest posts as summary or full post.

Hope this helps.

Hi, but I want to display it as a full.post on my blog roll but not really as a big snippet as an internal link in a other article though.
I presume what you just mentioned is regarding the blog roll?
Thanks for your help.

Jennu, I wonder if you could help me with this further. I clicked the summary box and saved the settings but my blog rolls are still really long and did not appear as summaries to open as the setting suggests. Any idea why this might be happening?

Did you add this in SiteContent or directly in WordPress?

If WordPress, are you using the Classic Editor or Guttenburg?

Which Theme are you using and any Plugins that extend functionality?

This is in wordpress. I use generate press. I use classic editor no other relevant plugins I think...I am pretty sure this never happened before and I fcould just add a url as a url. A other mistery in the world of technology...Thanks for your help Christopher.
