Displaying the full path in Onebox


(John ) #1

Generally I love the look of the onebox, but I feel kind of dumb when I try to link somewhere specific within our app, and it looks like this:

I could just put the link inline and avoid the onebox, but would it be possible to make sure that it displays the full URL?

Put a space at the beginning of the URL (or any other text) to avoid oneboxing.

Only URLs on a line by themselves, with no other text or characters, will onebox.

You might look at removing (or improving?) those opengraph or oembed codes on pages that do not benefit from it. Or you could remove coinbase from the oneboxing whitelist if you don’t want oneboxing to that domain at all.
