I followed the instructions at
https://rstudio.github.io/distill/metadata.html#twitter-card to make my Twitter card show an image, and I have
preview=TRUE specified on a chunk later in the file. I just created this Distill blog, so the file structure is the same as the default.
base_url: https://prayaggordy.github.io/blog/ twitter: site: "@prayaggordy" creator: "@prayaggordy"
But when I used Twitter's card validator
https://prayaggordy.github.io/blog/posts/2020-05-24-daily-charts/, the image was blank! The log even said
INFO: twitter:card = summary_large_image tag found.
I tried every arrangement for the preview image listed at
https://rstudio.github.io/distill/metadata.html#preview-images, but nothing worked. (Every time I uploaded to GitHub Pages I first knit the article and built the entire website.) I even tried to add the
meta tags listed on Twitter's website, but that didn't work either.
(Sorry about the links—the forum limits the number of links new users can create.)
Thanks in advance!
