These kind of links worked not very long ago:
Producing oneboxes like this:
But not any longer - I tried inputting them on:
But I couldn’t see what was wrong… Especially when I compared the output to Discourse’s own output…
Can someone point me in the right direction?
No insight on this? I still doesn’t work on my site (which used to work fine)…
It’s only been 2 days. You have to give us a little while to get to things
haha sorry, you’re right - it did prompt me to investigate further.
It looks like the onebox’er sends a HEAD request, which would explain it not working on my site, as I only support GET and POST. Doing a HEAD results in a 501 Not Implemented. When did this change?
Ah, this is a recent change to improve security with redirects.
I’ve been meaning to make it so that if the HEAD request receives a 501 it tries a GET. I will add that to my list.
Excellent. Now I know why, and that the problem is in very capable hands. Now I just have to ask my users to be patient Thanks!
