Visual Link Preview

Описание

Easily create a Facebook-like link preview for any link on your website. You can choose the image and text to display and create your very own custom template. The default template can be styled from the settings to match your website.

Some examples of what you could use this for:

  • A call to action for your affiliate links
  • Promote WooCommerce products on your website
  • List sources for your article
  • A weekly posty of interesting websites you’ve found
  • Link to related posts on your own website

It does not require any database lookups, which means even having many of these blocks on a page should not affect performance.

Compatible with both the Classic and Gutenberg Block Editor using shortcodes and blocks.

It really works and you can customize it easilyThis plugin deserve more attention

I'm really hard to please. Most plugins with good ratings I find to be worthless junk. Even decent ones have big issues most of the time or wind up being half measures. But this? This is fantastic. I have not found a single issue so far. It does exactly what you want pretty automagically. You can easily tweak the result. So easily in fact I was looking for something harder than just click the text in the sidebar. And the settings to make a custom style template? Amazingly robust. Ok fine, ONE missing thing, I'd love an option to set vertical centering of the image in the sidebar, but geez that's minor. If it could do the same magic on PDF files it would be godlike.

Well written, allows for template editing, multiple styling options. I haven't tested it with other wordpress builders so I don't know how that works together but I'm happy.
