Got a question from a user on our forum and not sure about the answer. (Feel free to move to either “bug” or “feature” as appropriate!)
It seems that certain oneboxed content does not turn up in search results. The example we got here is an embedded YouTube video. Searching for either the video title or the URL / YouTube video ID turns up no results in Discourse search.
For example, this video below is embedded using
But no search results come up for either
Metallica Mixer (part of the title; only shows upon onebox) or the video ID
lmFgeFh2nlw (from the URL, which text is actually part of the initial post.)
Not sure whether this is by design, or if we should be seeing search results for this sort of thing. But I can see the use case, namely “has anyone posted this link before”, for any forums where such links are common.
