Something seems to have been broken in a recent upgrade of the oneboxing engine. For example, this URL
used to be rendered like this on a discourse instance that is not meta:
Now it is rendered like this:
Never mind the different colour scheme. It’s the text that is different. In the older version, the text of the post being referred to is shown, now it’s the text of the OP (although I also wonder why the user avatar is missing in both cases, but that would be an older bug).
To be more precise: the old image is from my forum which is currently still on v1.9.0.beta4 +61, the new one is from feverbee (as of today) but I have also tried it on another freshly installed instance.
Next one is
https://meta.discourse.org/t/change-to-dd-mmm-mmm-yy-for-post-dates/13625/35?u=tophee which used to render like this:
but now comes out like this

Finally, this URL
https://meta.discourse.org/t/discourse-narrative-bot-beta-feedback/58621/254?u=tophee used to render like this:
but now it fails entirely to be oneboxed:
