    This plugin is useless for the following reasons:

    There is no description on the page shown in the preview.
    The broser Reloads the image every time you load the river, to avoid this you must use the code to cache the image locally, but has not explained where to put this code ...

    This is a draft of Facebook share link, not worth it.

    We must do better not worse!

    yes, because you always have to call an external api, because they use the APIs to achieve this Elgg

    @Smith: this plugin certainly is not useless. It does what it's supposed to do. I think what you mean is that it isn't as smooth as you would like it to be to make your website look very 2.0 etc. 

    We must do better not worse!

    I couldn't agree more, I look forward to your improvements on this plugin. :)

    Trajan As a common user, i say that this site interface is old...we need to look at web 3.0 not at 1.5 -  can you understand me?

    Unfortunately I am not a programmer, otherwise I would have recreated an interface entirely in real time - and I made ‚Äč‚Äčthis site entirely semantic, this is just one example of how we can detach ourselves from whata lready exists and do something better.

    @Smith: If you are so keen to have the features, why don't you donate some money to support future development of the plugin or hire flirx for a professional project?

    We must do better not worse!

    Precisely! Appreciate what people have done with ther precious time even without a pay, rather than shouting for what they haven't.

    This is just one example of how to decourage the contributions of the developers here and help them stop developing for free.
