How to post app store links with the preview?

I tried posting a link to our game on the app store but it doesn't show the preview with the images etc. like other threads do.

Is there some special way to insert this into forum posts?

If you ever see a post and think 'how did they do that ?' just simply click quote and you can see the code for spoilers, app store links, youtube etc.

Actually it doesn't work for YouTube, since quoting YouTube videos is disabled.

When you click on the "quote" button under any post you see the whole content of it, including the YouTube video code. Try it.

I did, many a time. This is what I see when I press "quote" on a post - in this case, the first post from the Warhammer Quest thread:




Edit: so I've had word that this is a change to the forum. It used to be that you'd see the YouTube embed tags, but for quite some time that hasn't been the case. In case anyone was wondering.
