Preview image (external link) when you add a link - niere8 - 2014-08-14

Hi, I'm testing on 1.8 this: http://lab.leocardz.com/facebook-link-preview-php--jquery/

I would like that when I add a link (in xThreads or I don't know) in new thread template, I have automatic preview image and this image is shown in first-post and in forumdisplay_thread.

For example I paste link: mybb.com in link area and I have link + preview image.

I have added only this plugin in new thread template, but obviously doesn't work..any idea? Sad

To link it to database and in xthreads field or other..

Edit: there is also this: https://github.com/Ekito/bootstrap-linkpreview

A plugin that emulates this (link preview) would be very useful. People are so hooked to Facebook that this is the new standard.

I do hope this feature is developed into a plugin, it would be very handy for media forums and keeps users engaged with new posts.
