Links Posted in messages showing the page linked to's [TITLE]

Hi,

I've been on another VBulletin based portal recently where if you post a url to a webpage rather than a url being displayed in the post it parse the [TITLE] of the page and displays that instead, unsure what the performance overhead is with this module but it's a nice touch.

Could it be added here?

Cheers

Sean

Surely you already can do that here, but it's not automatic.
Like this:
[U RL="http://blah.blah.blah"]Blah[/UR L]
but without the spaces, does this:

Blah

If you use the insert link tool and copy the address in it is automatic and you can give it what ever title you like

Yes but what I'm saying is you wouldn't have to, it quickly looks up whatever the title is for the webpage and puts it in as the url description for you.

We can do this already, but we have issues with Ebay links as they have all sorts of info in them.... it then breaks the style.

But to a degree, if its a link to a thread on our own board it should add the title? Thanks for posting.
