Support » Plugin: Visual Link Preview » Works with bbPress if you know the trick

  • Brecht has done a fantastic job with this plugin, as you can plainly see with all the wonderful reviews. The only people that don’t like it seem to be people that don’t understand that 3rd party page builders (Beaver Builder, Elementor, etc.) may not be compatible with this. That doesn’t mean the plugin deserves a lower rating. It’s designed for back end usage, primarily.

    It does work with Divi, though! Maybe because I have “Enable Classic Editor” enabled. As soon as I put in a link when editing the Text Module, the preview shows. Nice.

    However, to get this to work within your bbPress forums, see: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/need-to-help-use-it-available-in-bbpress/#post-14325874 Just be mindful that a popular forum might exceed the free limit from Microlink, so you might need to create an account there.

    Also some code examples mentioned in earlier posts in that thread. BuddyPress has its own URL preview functionality, but even if you are using both, this plugin will make previews work on the bbPress side within the forums as long as you follow along with the above thread. I have spent a month trying to figure this out.

    Thanks for the hard work, Brecht!

    Thank you for your review, I appreciate it.

    Happy to hear you got this working within bbPress using that code. I’m always surprised to see people improving something I made and then sharing code for others to use. One of the great things about WordPress!

    Definitely still on the todo list to include something like that into the plugin itself as well, but unfortunately my time is limited (like everyone, I guess).
