Visual Link Preview


Easily create a Facebook-like link preview for any link on your website. You can choose the image and text to display and create your very own custom template. The default template can be styled from the settings to match your website.

Some examples of what you could use this for:

  • A call to action for your affiliate links
  • Promote WooCommerce products on your website
  • List sources for your article
  • A weekly posty of interesting websites you’ve found
  • Link to related posts on your own website

It does not require any database lookups, which means even having many of these blocks on a page should not affect performance.

Compatible with both the Classic and Gutenberg Block Editor using shortcodes and blocks.

Thank you for this great plug-in, it's really useful. BTW, I've found 2 minor issues. 1. If the summary has a link tag which is not closed in the summary, it will cause to the next part, so I've fixed 54 line of class-vlp-link.php as below. # $properties['summary'] = nl2br( trim( $unsanitized->summary ) ); $properties['summary'] = nl2br( trim( strip_tags( $unsanitized->summary ) ) ); 2. When it crawls YouTube link, it shows summary as "Sorry for the interruption. We have been receiving a large number of requests from your network.". Different with the above issue, I couldn't spend time for check this is my IP problem or this plugin's structure problem. I hope this can be an info for the other useres.

To be able to customize the template is one plus, being a Gutenberg blocks is the icing on the cake, because: Combining this plugin with Gutenberg columns along with template customization gives me exactly what I needed. Thank you for this plugin !
