    There is no way to specify what text should be displayed in an embed. We rely on the 3rd party service Embedly for extracting title, description and images from a given url. You can try out what they extract from different urls here. I believe you can control the texts by specifying them in meta-tags and/or Facebook open graph meta tags on the page you are linking to.

    No, when an item is changed, e.g. the status of a bug, it is automatically shown in the activity stream. It has nothing to do with embeds.

    oh, understand. anyway

     

    1. i test the ", e.g. the status of a bug, it is automatically shown in the activity stream" - see attached file - so i awaited exact string field status changed from -> to.

    2. if i understand you use to attach web pages to stream embed.ly. there many providers, which are supported, so you support some of them or all ? how to use ? how we can embed something like scribd presentation ? directly viewable like in facebook ?
