I'm managing a content sharing site built on drupal 7 and I would like to let users submit links as content.

Is there a simple way of creating a thumbnail / preview of the link (like on facebook)?


I think Opengraph Filter is a better solution than Facebook-Style Micropublisher since FBSMP relies on Statuses module and both modules are not very stable yet and also they serve for a more specific purpose. Opengraph Filter does only that what you need.

    Do you think this module is what was asked for and will serve the purpose?..As far as I know, this module is meant for attaching contents to FBSS and has a dependency on it. And here the question poster wants to have similar functionality for field added to content type. Though maybe the code fbsmp uses can be used.:) – Neo Oct 9 '13 at 7:23
