What Types of Links Can You Use in Discord Embed Messages?
Embed Title Links
The title area of your Discord embed message can be a clickable link. This is optional when building out your embed messages, but it is a great place to use a link, as it is the largest text within an embed message, and at the very top of the message content.
Embed messages can also include descriptions, and just like standard Discord messages as shown above, as long as you use the “https://” part of the link, they will be clickable within your embed descriptions.
The other great place to use links within an embed message generator is a “Link Button”. These are clickable buttons that appear at the bottom of your embed, outside of the standard embed content.
The powerful part of link buttons is the fact that they are big clickable buttons and you can customize the text on them too, which helps when enticing your server members to click on them.
