Linkedin Question - My links do not show the site's headline or photo

When I post an update with a link, I'd like the headline of the web link to appear.  This used to happen automatically but it doesn't anymore.  Now all I see is the shortened URL and no narrative.  Is there a setting I'm missing?

Hi there!

I just tried it.  I copy/pasted a link on to LinkedIn and posted a comment.  The link is automatically shortened but the headline is bold and shown to the left of the picture.  See screenshot.  What link did you try to post?  I can post it for myself and see what happens.

PS.  I looked in account settings and there's no settings as far as I saw for changes to how you post things.
