The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Link Preview

Issue #5

Description in preview unnecessarily missing.
I know, it's on purpose, the meta description isn't descriptive of the article and there's nothing else to substitute it with here (no subtitle, paragraph...)
But the checklist clearly reads "The link preview *requires* a description."
And here there's one, albeit subpar, so it should be used IMO.

The fact that one has to hack around ..after which uses the meta tags by forcing description to an empty string is a bad sign (we shouldn't have to prevent ..after code from taking a default value).

Plus, some other articles may eventually end up with this generic description (like -- although this template doesn't generate IV for this one, we can see the description) since the template only applies this workaround for /galerias/ articles.

We end up risking losing valid descriptions, still leaving some non valid ones, and gaining nothing overall.
Yes, galleries have no descriptive description and I decided to remove it, in other articles I don't do that.
Declined by admin
For this source page, since it does not actually have a proper description, it seems reasonable for the template to handle this case this way.

Also, in general, link preview issues for non-IV pages are not considered critical issues.
