How to debug WordPress site oneboxing?

I have previously had no issues with onebox, but suddenly any links from my WordPress site aren’t oneboxing properly. They simply show the url (after the spinner tries to one box). Other WordPress links seem to work properly.

Is there a way to debug this process and see why the url isn’t embedding properly? I assume it is something with my WP site.

Doesn’t work…


Everything seems to show up properly here:

Edit: Just noticed you had checked the iframely already

Posted that link with the results above when I edited. Here’s the report and everything looks good (images, descriptions, etc.) nothing about an error or anything.

This might help you (see ref WPEngine)


Is using Cloudflare? I wouldn’t be surprised if some of Cloudflare’s features also blocked the Discourse user agent.


Thanks guys. You are correct that it was a security setting blocking the user agent. Thanks for quick responses!
