Ghost Post Oembed and Bookmarks Issue

Related: Ghost Blog.


Ghost embeddings and bookmarks seems to be failing when pasting urls to another posts or page of the same blog. Probably it's related to Node 18 version. Facing it on the latest 5.82.12 docker official image.

I've found a least 3 workarounds.

  1. Downgrading Node should probably fix the issue according to github issue
  2. Run a local instance, paste url there, then copy-paste the embedding to the prod blog. Weird but it works.
  3. Paste url manually as an html block
