ShareLinkField is born
Have you ever posted a link on Facebook? An image and the site description is automatically scraped from the site, and you can select an image from the site without a page reload. When you are done the result is posted in one unit; it is very slick.
Currently, one project of mine is to recreate this ability for Drupal sites. To add such fields flexibly to nodes I decided to create a custom CCK field modeled on Jennifer Hodgdon's article and using Karen Stevenson's recent post as a reference.
The result is so far is called ShareLinkField and is a compound field consisting of a link (made by the link module) an imagefield, and a site description field. There is no scraping, yet... If you are interested in the status of this project please contact me.
