WordPress Link Preview like Facebook and LinkedIn

Posted on Oct 2nd, 2014

There was quite a few requests on making a plugin for wordpress which would insert excerpts from a link just like how facebook and linkedin does. I had earlier created this as an independent jquery plugin – Facebook type link preview

But then it looks like wordpress users really needs this as a WP Plugin – https://wordpress.org/ideas/topic/auto-generate-facebook-style-link-preview-when-inserting-url-into-editor

I have developed a basic plugin which does this. I just submitted this to wordpress, but it looks like it will take sometime for the wordpress juries to verify this and make it available.

However wordpress link preview can be downloaded from here –

Download wordpress link preview


Click Insert Url


 Enter the url


 Click Ok and wait for 5 seconds. There is no progress bar.


 Demo Output – This is how it looks like.


Change the UI with custom css in the admin dashboard.
