Is this using an API to get the link information? If so, is there a limit to the number of requests?

Hello @amcrossl23

The uses two methods to retrieve the link information. Either using the plugin’s visual element on page, or as an API request to retrieve the data.
However for the API request, there is no limit in place for the foreseeable future as far as we know.

Hope this helps :pray:

Please try the Live Demo to see that it works as expected for you. :slight_smile:

Dumitru.

Thank you! Is there a way to change the standard UI? We have a dark mode on our app and would like to be able to change the button color away from the white background and pink button

Hello @amcrossl23

In order to customize the look for preview of your links, it is recommended to use the API data call. You can customize the design how you need using it.
See our demo setup: zeroqode-demo-14 | Bubble Editor

Not sure to fully understand this plugin.

I build an app where user record a video and share with his clients, a Vidyard like app.

I want to display a beautiful image when my user shares the link to his clients. However, bubble does not offer the possibility to custom open graph or meta tags and the link preview is really bad.

Can this plugin help me in displaying a good and unique link preview for each of the urls?

Hello @jv.hirigoyen

As plugin states, it 'll simply offer a preview of your urls in a nice looking thumbnail element.
In return it offers exposed states which can used.

Test it out on a demo stand: https://zeroqode-demo-14.bubbleapps.io/link-preview

Regards,
Dumitru.

Do you have documentation or a tutorial on how to set up and use the API call? Its not clear from the demo setup.

Thanks,
Josh

Hello, @hofst038. Thanks for reaching out.

I’m afraid the Link Info and Preview plugin does not need the API call setup for work. It only requires to use of the plugin element which is called LinkPreview:


You need simply install the plugin, place the plugin element on the page, and paste the URL into the Link field in the LinkPreview element.

But if you are curious about how to generally setup API calls, then I suppose these resources will be useful to you:

I hope it helps. Take care.

Hi Kate,

Thanks for the quick reply. I tried using only the link element; however, I can not resize the preview. I am trying to fit the preview into the square highlighted in red:

The other issue is that the element takes up too much space for me to put on the page and none of my other inputs are usable.

Any work around for this?

Thank,
Josh

@hofst038,

I’m afraid, the plugin element size is not changeable, because it’s designed to be a fixed size since the container for the data inside is the same as provided within possibilities and best possible view. Apologies for the inconvenience.

I suppose, as a workaround, you need to change the design of your repeating group to fit the plugin element completely and avoid covering other objects within the same group.

I hope this info will be useful to you.
Take care :pray:

Hi @Greg.P thanks for the reply & support ,unfortunately i installed the version 1.4 but it keeps show me the same popup error message . please let me show you how i run this plugin :

1- I added a custom state in the main page , I called it " preview : Linkinfo (Link preview) .
Note: the value display by default

2- I created the database related to the Plugin URL inforamtion like (URL : image, title, description )
STEP 2 CREATE THE DATA

3- After click on the " add web url " button in the design page , the work flow works like this : create the Linkinfo(link preview ) IMAGE + Linkinfo(link preview ) TITLE

4- This is how the front end looks like :

  • When i installed the latest version of this plugin it show me " 16 errors " because the custom state it self not available any more and it affect almost all the data inside my app

@ciscotreasure, thanks for sharing the screenshots with your setup.
We will need some more time to investigate and fix the issue with API integration.
I will get back with a message once there will be any progress.

Thank you for your patience :pray:t3:

Hello @ciscotreasure, hope you are doing well.

In order to check if the issue on your side was solved, and the error message does not appear anymore it is needed to update the plugin to version 1.9.0.

Let me know if this helps.
Have a good day!
