Oneboxing of discourse internal links - How does it work?

(Bcguy) #1


I have two discourse-hosted forums. Some topics need to be posted in both forums (some news topics) but I don’t want to do complete reposts - so I’ve tried to just post the link from the post in one forum to the other forum.

But - when I do this - it doesn’t one-box the link / content. Why not?

When I post the link within the forum (i.e. to another post within the forum) it does onebox, but not when I post in the other forum. What can I do to get the oneboxing work in both forums?

Is one of them private? Oneboxing only works on URLs that are 100% public to the world.

I’m testing @BCHK’s situation now and see strange results. Pasting the link in the composer fails to create a onebox. If I open a rails console and do it there, I get a onebox. But never from the composer. :confused: I don’t know what that tells me…

Does whitelisting domains come into play here?
