Beautiful Link Preview

Description

This plugin allows you to create previews of links similar to common social networks when sharing a link.

It works by fetching the link URL and examining either the facebook Open Graph properties or Twitter card tags including any preview image.
Any title, description or image is stored inside this WordPress’ own database and subsequently used from there to render the Beautiful Link Preview.

Usage: just add the following shortcode to any HTML block in your post or page:

[beautiful_link_preview url="https://zeitwesentech.com"]

Screenshots

  • Usage of shortcode inside HTML block in editor.
  • This is how the previous shortcode looks.
  • Override the layout to use per shortcode.
