"Not found" on forum link previews too often

By Christian Scheuer @chrscheuer2021-01-24 13:34:45.032Z

Hi Magnus,

If you take a look at this:
https://forum.soundflow.org/-3934#post-3

Quoting a search on the forum shows "Not found". Just like it does for items it can't have access to.
It would be better IMO if it didn't say "Not found". Just show the link as normal and have the error message be internal or something.
It wouldn't feel like an error if it didn't say "Not found" :)

    That's a good idea. I'll fix.

    Temporary workaround: If you indent the link with a space (or many spaces), it'll render as a plain link.
    Example: This:

      https://www.talkyard.io/-/search?q=test-query
    
    https://www.talkyard.io/-/search?q=test-query
    

    renders like:

    https://www.talkyard.io/-/search?q=test-query

      Status update: The fix will be deployed to Prod in a few days, likely Friday.

      I.e. just showing a normal link instead. (And any error code is instead in invisible HTML attributes — so the e2e tests can see it, and stay happy.)

      (Sorry this took a while.)

        New version deployed (last Thursday) — now there should be no Not Found text, just plain links:
