Is it possible to add code whoch is automatically displaying a thumbnail of the linked website?

Also it would be nice to have a feature which checks a links for its valdity before listing it.

Thumbnails are tricky You have to take a screenshot of the website. I had software that does it but too hard to add to SMF. The best bet is to find an API to do so.

Link checking is possible.

Hello, SMF Packs has such a feature in their link system. However I did not want to switch over to that mod as I have quite some work put into my link system. Also having a feature to autocheck an url wheter it is valied prior to submission would be good to have

Yeah that is paid product though.   Autocheck url would be possible. Thumbnails require a 3rd party service to take a picture of a website.

I could do autocheck if the url is valid or not.


Images would require an api maybe https://thumbnail.ws/compare-plans.html

I would appreciate if the following could be added to the links directory:

- Checking if URL is valid - best via Ajax

- Screenshoot

- Search Function

- Avatar of the person who posted a link
