Get Remote URL Info adds a button to the TinyMCE editor, which helps adding information about remote URLs. It will open a popup where you can enter the URL and the plugin will fetch the information (title, description and images) like Facebok or Google+. You can select the desired image as well. When you confirm, the image is uploaded to you server and a DIV with the information is added in your post. Because the information is added into the post, you can edit it as you want, customizing the way it is displayed.
This is the first version of this plugin. If people like it, I can improve by adding an admin page with options, some additional functionality and translations. You can give feedback by leaving a comment in here.
