Indiegogo link troubles

Whenever I post a url link to Indiegogo it doesn't show up.

Like this example:



However, if I put it the url brackets, it will
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/iruk ... 16205959#/


I believe the link should autopopulate like the Kickstarter ones with a preview graphic.
But noticed it stopped working after the recent switchover.
Far and wide I will find 'em and I ride 'em
Bricks and mortar get my licks just for kicks
AD or authorized I don't analyze
Retail, wholesale never fail
Online or offline, I find I don't redefine
Too big to fail or yard sale they all hale
Run or hide just for fun deals I find

Most likely an incompatibility on their end. I can see if there have been any bug reports, though.

MoT,

I looked around but did not see a specific thread. For the past couple of months when I look at the Deals thread, the links people post, myself included, only show up as an Amazon logo image with no ability to see an image of the watch deal they have posted. I'm not Tech savvy but I am using Firefox and Windows10 with everyone's favorite Russian spyware Kaspersky. I have used this set up since your site started and did not have trouble until the last couple months. I assume others here can see the links and images otherwise lots of folks would have been complaining about it. I assume it's my setup. Do you have any idea what would be causing this issue?
Thanks.
