I’m not sure if this is a bug with Oneboxing when Starting a topic with a URL or if this is a matter with how Composing a new pre-filled topic via URL works. Both topics are now closed, so here we go:
When a URL is passed to the title= param it should get queried and return a valid title-text in the Title field and a featured image (if supported by source page at that URL).
What I observe:
I make a get request to
<my-site>/new-topic? endpoint with the following params:
title=window.location (a valid URL gets passed into the Title input field)
category=myCategory (a category gets correctly selected in the category selector)
body=Some_Markdown_Text (correctly formatted markdown appears in Composer’s textarea)
The URL doesn’t seem to get queried and stays as an ugly title when the Create topic button is pressed.
