Link Preview Display Customization

Hi everyone. I’m running a new Mattermost install for a small team - we’re moving over from Slack.

I wanted to ask if there was any way to customize or alter the default link preview. My team needs to pass back and forth a lot of Twitter links, and we’re hoping to make some tweaks to the way they are currently displayed (eg. we would like all images to display inline). Is this possible? Thank you.

Hi @chainbrain,

Thanks for your feedback,

Is this perhaps what you’re looking to do?

If not, please come back and we’ll troubleshoot further :slight_smile:

I’m not sure if this will address my issue. I am attempting to change the way tweets are displayed as a link preview.

In Slack, tweets currently display like this:
tweetdisplayslack

Is there any way to customize the code for the link display such that we can customize it to look closer to the one in Slack (avatar placement, information, etc.)?

I’m very new, so thank you for your patience :slight_smile:

Hi @chainbrain,

Thanks for your feedback,

I believe this would entail a code change in our software so I’m going to ask one of our product managers to chime in here as they will know what’s on the roadmap / in development and will be able to assist you further.
