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

Features:

  • 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
