We have a need to allow users submit an external URL within their blog. From this URL, we want to extract the title, image and description (or first 3 paragraphs) and include it within the blog. We saw the "Status" plugin and the LINKS option is doing what we want. However, we would much rather have this option within a new POST editor so that the visual rich editor is also available along with category selection, etc.
Do you have another plugin or if it is possible to use the Status plugin in such a way?
