Transform a picture link into thumbnail format like video link

Hi, I was just wondering, is it possible to paste into the activity a picture link and a thumbnail shows up just like when you post in video link? any help would be great, thanks


The video is added by default by BuddyPress using something called oEmbed. It doesn't support photos. Our plugin will add support for images and links, too, soon.


WordPress/BuddyPress already supports oEmbed (embedding videos from popular sites like Flickr).

I posted a detailed update here -

Please check that. I am marking this as "rejected" as this doesn't fit in our roadmap as explained in other post
