Link cards let you display content from other websites on a Milanote board. They're great for collecting inspiration from around the web.
How to use a link card:
Copy the URL of the content you want to add to your clipboard
Drag out a Link card from the lefthand toolbar in Milanote
Paste your link & hit enter to create the card
Link cards contain three sections:
A preview image or media item
A URL/clickable link
A description of the card
The preview thumbnail is an image or media file retrieved from the URL you added to your card.
Show or hide the preview thumbnail by clicking your link card once to select it, and then clicking on the "Image" button in the left-side toolbar
Replace a thumbnail image with a custom image of your own by dragging your custom image overtop of the thumbnail and holding it in place until you see a black border appear around the link card's edge.
Now, drop the card, and your new thumbnail will be applied:
Just like the preview thumbnail, the link description can be turned on or off by clicking the link card once to select it, and clicking on the Description button in the left-side toolbar.
You can also update the description by double clicking on it to enable the editing mode.
Milanote link cards support all kinds of content:
Video from Youtube, Vimeo or TED

Code snippets from CodePen
Images from Instagram, Dribbble, Flickr etc.
