Can you tell that I like jQuery and it's inclusion in XenForo . This addon is a basic integration of an awesome jQuery plugin I came across called j-Link-Previewer which was written by a nice guy named Sarpdoruk Tahmaz who I had a chance to speak to when a question of mine came up and he was more than helpful and quick to answer. For that he get's the first paragraph of this OP. So thank you sir
This addon basically allows you to post a link and show a preview screenshot of that site utilizing a bbcode so that site members may opt to use this instead of just a standard click-able link. I thought it was classy so I whipped it up into a quick addon for everyone's enjoyment. The screenshots have a small watermark that get thrown in for free use and for a small fee per year you can have brand free images. I myself don't mind the waterwark but will be getting rid of it at some point soon.
You hover a link...it overlays a snapshot of the link location. Pretty simple.
To test it register@... http://xenxero.com/threads/xxsp-demo-thread.15/
[site=xenforo.com]This get's displayed[/site]
for sites that cannot redirect www and use http:// only you can use [http]
I will use this example... http://hubble.nasa.gov/
[http=hubble.nasa.gov]I can see the stars[/http]
in pages you may also use this....
<a class="jQlinkPre" title="This is my website" href="http://xenxero.com">Click me</a>
...for instance you could use a logo as the clickable and on hover have it display the preview shot.
