Link Preview for pages outside the main namespace showing Stub information
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG REPORT


Steps to replicate the issue:

  • With "Show link previews" turned on in settings
  • Visit an article on the app that is outside the main namespace:
  • Click on another link, for example "Contributing to Wikipedia" to see its link preview

What happens?:

  • The link preview refers to the "article" as a stub, and invites the user to edit the article.

What should have happened instead?:

  • Do not show text + edit CTA
  • Pull in first part of page to preview instead

Nice to have:

  • References to "Article" should be replaced with "Page" or more appropriate term

Event Timeline

The most important part of this task was done: not referring to these pages as Stubs and inviting users to edit, I updated the Task description to match.
The preview now shows any images/icons that are on the article in the link-preview. We did not change the CTA "Read Article".
