Lightroom: Make Keywords Visible in Shared Lightroom Web Albums

Keywords added to photos inside LR Classic or Lightroom Desktop app albums appear on the Web at  lightroom.adobe.com, but when the album is shared they are no longer visible at the share link. Not sure if I need to make this a request or a problem because I thought this was supported in earlier LR versions.

Todd, I've already asked Adobe if this is by design or an oversight/bug when they implemented the recent Info panel changes. There's now a dedicated Keywords panel in the Web app, similar to the desktop Lightroom app (and it appears that keywords are now also editable in the Web app), but viewing through the share link that Keywords panel isn't available.

They haven't responded to me yet about this, but I'm hoping it's a bug/oversight which will be corrected in due course. It wouldn't hurt to list your post as a  problem!

Thanks Jim I have it listed as a 'Problem' and will discuss with Rikk and Jeff at the next Lightroom Lobby meeting Oct 10.

Changed to an 'Idea' feature request since no response from Adobe to date. It's a no-brainer to provide keyword visibility in shared Web albums. This is "missing" from both LR Classic and LR Desktop created albums. Why?
