Below are some preview images of what the mod looks like when being used


This mod adds small bubbles with the picture of the linked website to all external links on your smf. This works client-side via a small javascript file. All links which does not contains your hostname (where your smf is installed) will get the preview-bubbles. If you move your mouse cursor over the links, the bubble appears on moving out they disappear.

  • bubbles only appears on links posted with [ url] tag
  • user can turn on/off the sitepreview in userCP

Update 1.2
  • setting in userCP is turned on by default
  • added small icons indicating an external link

Update 1.3
  • admin can choose between different thumbnailing services
  • admin can turn off the preview function generally
  • admin can choose between different bubble-colors (white, grey, black)
    (Admin CP -> Features and Options -> Layout and Options)

Update 1.31
  • fixes a problem where no bubbles appear when just adding a link without [ url] tag
