Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When pasting a URL (http://facebook.stackoverflow.com/questions/###) into chat, I see the "working" indicator image for a second or two, but a onebox is not created.

Editing the post and removing facebook. from the URL makes it behave normally.

Odd. Yes I see that issue here: chat.stackoverflow.com/transcript/message/1329311#1329311 This should be fixed. – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Aug 26 '11 at 16:59
    
Pasting a facebook.stackoverflow question URL into a question or answer also doesn't automatically turn that URL into a link with the title of the question as the link text like it does for all other SE sites. – Troyen Aug 27 '11 at 6:12

Works now. Since facebook.so is not a "real" site, it's not in the StackAuth sites listing, that's why the links weren't recognized as "oneboxable". Until we have found a good way to expose mini-sites via the API, facebook.so is now hardcoded as being okay to onebox.

Note that even when you use a facebook.stackoverflow.com link, the link in the onebox will go to the canonical resource on stackoverflow.com.
