Implemented Embed "Photo" from a "Link"


Well-known member
we already have the feature to "Embed a Video" from a "Link" (e.g.: posting a Link to a YouTube-video and then it embeds in the Forum or in the Media-Gallery).


create a feature to "Embed a Photo" by posting a Link (e.g.: a Link to a Facebook-page or a Link to an Instagram-page) to a page where the Photo is showing.

e.g.: a Link like this:

Aktiv- & Wellnesshotel on Instagram: “#sonnenaufgang #bergfried #placetobe #tux #tuxertal #zillertal #tirol #hintertux #hotelbergfried #lanersbach @zillertal_tirol #hikingguide…”

Posting this "Link" into the Forum or in the Media-Gallery will display (embed) the Photo.

This can be done using an appropriate BB code media site definition. There may be a resource that provides this.

This won't happen for arbitrary sites though (and shouldn't).
