A co-admin new to Discourse was going through the options and pointed out that “Onebox” wasn’t exactly intuitive. Maybe it’s worth adding a heading to that page about what Onebox is?
This might help:
I have the same problem, I don see any preview on my links.
i have added the URL to the whitelist, using www and non www. Nothing works.
The test URL has og tags, tested with facebook, and nothing…
What does Iframely URL Debugger - Open Graph, Twitter Cards, oEmbed say?
I am trying to embed something from autodesk360.com and it doesn’t seem to register. Is there a way within my discourse admin settings to allow for this iframe to show?
Another option if you haven’t already ruled it out might be Sketchfab, it looks like a lot of people have been using it to share their 3D models on a Discourse instance. If you search for Sketchfab here, you might find some examples of what you are looking for.
Unfortunately I don’t see the iframe options in the settings. Others do. Really confused.
What version of Discourse are you on?
1.9.0b1 on digital ocean
Update to latest beta, then.
That did it. Thank you!
For clarity, would I be correct in thinking that Onebox is using oEmbed to provide embedded previews of links (ie that onebox is Discourse’s elsewhere-cryptically-referenced native support for oEmbed?)
Yes, onebox leverages OpenGraph and oEmbed tags, if present on the target site.
