Stack Exchange/Stack Overflow blog posts are supposed to onebox, as per this meta post but it looks like anything with the .blog TLD doesn't onebox anymore. (See this chat message for an example).

Can this be fixed so the blog posts onebox again?

    Yeah, looks like the regex we have for matching blog post links no longer does what it's supposed to. I tried out a quick fix, but it doesn't seem to work locally for me, and I'm not sure if that's just a side-effect of the recent blog platform switch or something else. I'll dig in a bit more later, but overall... yes, we're definitely going to fix the one-boxing, but it may take a couple days since we're just about at the weekend here. Sorry 'bout that.

  • There's a bunch of different things in play here, one is the move of blog platforms, another is a URL change - a third is that the new blog platform doesn't expose the expected API for oneboxing. The first two I was able to get done, the third, however, I am waiting to see if we can do (the new platform is managed by a third party).

There was a bunch of different issues causing the Stack Overflow blog to no longer one-box, which are all now fixed.

There's still an issue with some of the archived blogs from the network - I am looking for a way to get those done too.
