Make new post from a link in one click, like on Twitter
Post content from an external publication with one click: Insert link to the input field in WordPress dashboard and a new post will be created.
It is similar to twitter cards – title, description and featured image is taken from metadata if there are any. The featured image gets downloaded into your own media library and set as a regular featured image.
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/plugin-namedirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
- Go to your WordPress dashboard to see the Unfurl input field, drag it to a more convenient place if necessary.
- The image/title from the site does not render, I get a default one.
This happens currently mainly for medium.com articles. This plugin is still under development – the internets are wild and the metatags aren’t perfect.
There are no reviews for this plugin.
