Links that are oneboxed not shown in context reply emails


(Jesse Perry) #1

That’s one convoluted topic title, sorry — but it does explain the bug.

Here’s a recap of the bug:

  1. Post something with a link that becomes onebox’ed (in my case it was an Amazon link)
  2. Have someone reply to it
  3. The op gets an email with their original post in the “in reply to” section, but the onebox is missing (which is probably fine), but so is the link. The link is missing in the context post.

Make sense?

Pretty sure that’s by design. The “In Reply To” bit of the email is just a summary, not the full post that it was in reply to. @sam worked on that.

The thing is though that this happened when the post was only two lines. One sentence and the link - but the link was cut out.
