Magic OGP links: thumbnails and descriptions

Post by Extensions Robot » Sat Nov 11, 2017 11:14 am

Extension name: Magic OGP links: thumbnails and descriptions
Author: Ger
Extension description: Fetch plain pasted "magic urls" to render as rich content with the Open Graph Protocol tags, just like you see on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, etc.

Requirements:
  • phpBB 3.2
  • PHP 5.4+
  • cURL
  • Libxml
  • DOMDocument
  • DOMXPath
All of these are usually available on your server when you're on a descent host.

Visitors need Javascript for the rendering, otherwise the links appear as regular phpBB links.

Features:
  • Let users simply copy and paste their links without hassle
  • Parses the OGP image, title and description in a nice looking block
  • The entire block is the link
  • Falls back to regular HTML title and meta description when possible
  • Falls back to regular phpBB links when no (sufficient) OGP data is found
  • Fetches OGP data on posting so it doesn't impact each time on rendering
  • When posting with url=... tags the OGP data isn't fetched so your users can choose use regular links in their text when they want to
Language en and nl included.
Language is only used when the extension detects missing server requirements and is only presented tot the administrator.
