What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

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.
