Add info to embed-shell when preview=true

Reported by David Humphrey | November 6th, 2012 @ 03:51 PM | in 1.0.2 Tuesday (closed)

We are adding cache busting for embeds in #2819. We want users to be able to get recent updates to projects, but not to encourage the use of the URLs we'll produce to enable that--they break our CDN/cache by design.

It would be nice to add a simple string to the embed-shell doc dynamically when ?preview=true (we have this code path going into #2819, so it will exist soon). It should try to convey:

  • This is a preview URL and not the URL you should use when sharing
  • The real URL to use for sharing is available at
  • The real URL might take some time to update, but will update eventually when CDN updates.

The last bit is somewhat technical for non-techie users, so has to be done carefully so we don't overwhelm them with details.
