  19. How do I get a subsite that is deeper than the radio button choices?

    How do I set subsite that is deeper than radio button choices - The radio button choices for https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/luis/ do not allow me to go all the way to /luis but stop short at azure. Are there APIs for the definition editor that are public and supported?

  20. openGraphImage not available

    Some webpage results are not returning an openGraphImage:

    Take the following example:

    {
    "id": "https://api.cognitive.microsoft.com/api/v7/#WebPages.0",
    "name": "Buy Poly-Max Flags > Poly-Max Flags | Flag Store USA",
    "url": "https://www.flagstoreusa.com/products/poly-max-flags/",
    "urlPingSuffix": "DevEx,5082.1",
    "displayUrl": "https://www.flagstoreusa.com/products/poly-max-flags",
    "snippet": "Flag Store USA is the most reliable source to buy American made Poly-Max Flags Poly-Max Flags online.",
    "dateLastCrawled": "2017-11-02T00:16:00.0000000Z",
    "cachedPageUrl": "http://cc.bingj.com/cache.aspx?q=Poly-Max+Flags&d=4552211826215148&mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&w=Yg_PqlFIkPcWG1iUEEQkZKEubMamZ0Nr",
    "cachedPageUrlPingSuffix": "DevEx,5083.1"
    }

    If you go to the cachedPageUrl and view source, you should see the following meta tag in the head of the page:

    <meta property="og:image" content="https://www.flagstoreusa.com/Customer-Content/www/products/Categories/Photos/us-outdoor-poly-max-flag-6x10-or-smaller.jpg&quot; alt="Poly-Max Flags" />

    Any idea why this is…
