    I have a site that lets visitors submit links. Now that i'm getting some good traffic the most requested feature is this: the visitor adds the url he wants to share and the title, image and excerpt are pulled from the url automatically. So the visitor only has to enter the url manually.

    I have been searching the entire afternoon but did not find a solution for this. There are plenty of plugins that let you submit everything manual, but nothing that pulls data automatically. If you look at other front end submission sites, they all have this feature. I find it strange no one has ever built this for wordpress.

    Do you know of a solution for this? Or can this somehow be constructed with a plugin like contact form 7 or gravity forms?
