Link cards for Make blog posts shared on Bluesky show "429 Too Many Requests" as the preview

When sharing blog posts from on, the link cards show an error message ("429 Too Many Requests") instead of the post preview. The preview properly appears on X/Twitter, so it seems like this might be an issue with an allowlist or some other firewall/DNS type issue.

This appears to be happening for all of the links shared on in the last 2 months.

Would love to see the Make blog posts looking good on that platform.

It takes a lot of effort to get a 429 from our side. It's possible, but the system is fairly liberal with allowing a lot of requests. It sounds like you need to bring this up to the bluesky administrators or code system. If they can get that kind of response out of our servers, then they are actually breaking most sites that get linked to on their system.

I can verify that I can post to Bluesky with link cards, and they render as expected.

I suspect the platform may not have be caching things correctly, and that naturally led to a temporary rate limit :)

As things are working as expected, I'm going to suggest we close this issue.

  • Status changed from new to closed

I've re-tested this and you're right that new posts do appear to be working correctly. The old posts are still showing the 429 errors, but I guess that is some caching issue on their end.

Wanted to report here, in case they needed an explicit allowlist exception that they didn't have. No objection to closing it here.
