Extend your river, this will allow you to: -preview the urls sites you add. -transform the texts preceded by # to a link (this will be searchable)
** TODO *** Cache the url to reduce the quantity of http requests to the server that generates the previews.
Thanks Marc Widmer
Thank you for your message and plugin. I have a few question. Can you setting #hasttags to look the same like twitter? I mean without heading "Wire post", "Tidypics", just one Heading - "Realtime search results" with the same design like twitter. This will be much attractive for user.
Second case. Idea with integrate your plugin with Wire post is good, but it will be much better when you will integrate this plugin with Riverdasboard. Please add the same textfield like the Wire post, but in the river page. This will be familliar like in Facebook home page with post. This will be much better.
Third. thumbnails is not available. Tell my why isnt working? I dont see any thumbs...
Here is example how this should like:
Strangely confused! Installed, got API key etc etc.
Followed the example in the images preview here. But I don't get the desired result. I'm aware of the 24 hour thing. If you read deeper that's actually only if they don't already have a thumbnail of the website you're looking for.
I tested with facebook which they should have. This was my code:
facebook www.facebook.com #facebook #urlpreview
What am I doing wrong?
in fact,i am finding that after you have made just one query from your domain via #ulrpreview, you/your users don't even have to include #urlpreview again.
from that time on, url previews will appear for any and all urls you/your users have entered or ever will enter that appear in the activity river.
in other words, just make one post including the #urlpreview tag and you should not ever have to use it again and neither should your users.
could you just have the plugin automatically add the #urlpreview tag to the input once received? Would save potential confusion and forgetfulness by users.
While you may not ever need it again, it wouldn't hurt to send it (I'm guessing) and then the user would never have to worry about it.
Just got an email about PageGlimpse.com they are going to be Closing Down in December next month. So this plugin and all other plugins as they said via email will not be working soon... Here is the email I got:
Dear PageGlimpse User,
After more than three years of providing the best FREE web page thumbnails capture service on the web, we're sorry to announce that we have to shut it down. As traffic and cost increases we had to make a very difficult decision. Shutting this service down would allow us to invest more time in other projects we currently have. Effective December 15, 2010, web thumbnails placed on web pages using PageGlimpse will not be displayed anymore. The Wordpress plugin will stop functioning as well.
We would like to thank you for your interest and support of PageGlimpse.
As of today we are putting PageGlimpse up for sale, and we would like to entertain offers to acquire the technology and related assets. We are serving over 100 million API requests each month, and we have thousands of users using the service today. If we are unable to find a buyer for the service, we will be shutting it down and the technology would be used for other projects we have. If you're interested in buying the PageGlimpse service and all related assets, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
