Website doesn't support onebox


(tran) #1

The aim of my discourse is for designers to communicate. I need to add an onebox which is the largest design website in our country . But this website does not support onebox.What should I do?

In order for the link to come up as a onebox they need to have opengraph or oembed meta tags

You see what you see when you paste the site into Iframely URL Debugger - Open Graph, Twitter Cards, oEmbed

Then you ask the site why they don’t follow the standards that make their site usable.

If required you pay to have a custom plugin developed or become a customer of Discourse.org as customer needs are taken care of first.

Is there a reason not to share the site name here? There is no way to diagnose the problem without being able to see it. What if you paste a link here or in try what happens?

link:Determination 決心 2018-01|插画|其他插画|我的药呢 - 原创作品 - 站酷 (ZCOOL) .I saw the site showed “no embeds for that URL” when I pasted the site.If I pay to a custom plugin,what can I need to do?

I’d first contact the site administrators and ask if they’ll support the standard. It would make their site more useful all over the web, where developing a plugin for Discourse will make their site useful only on the few sites that choose to use the plugin.

You can post your request in #marketplace. Be sure to include a budget. It’s unclear just how difficult it’ll be. My wild guess is in the US$500-$1500 range.
