Why not to use original Telegram Instant View templates registry?

Telegram’s InstantView looks abadoned, they do not accept new templates for years.

Why not to use way to build URL via Telegram InstantView Bot?

This works, but it will create ugly long URL. This plugin makes everything clear, like you have template in registry, you may post clear links to posts directly, your frends may do so and so on.

I installed plgun, but i still dont see InstantView on my posts

If you still dont see InstantView on URL’s, check the following:

  • Telegram bot caches parsing result, and Instant View will be triggered for new URL’s for bot. You may prune cache by adding some random parameters like test=123 and change it every time, Telegram bot will request again.
  • Instant View works only on mobile cliens! Do not try to test it desktop clients.

I want to test, how Telegram sees my post via InstantView

To test, how your posts appears for Telegram bot, just add tg-instantview=1 parameter to post URL, Post example.
