First, welcome to the forum.

There are many ways to accomplish goals in ProcessWire, so I'm sure others will submit additional info, or a completely different solution. :)

Probably the simplest method to start with would be to create a text field to hold the desired URL, and reference that page field in your code as the usage section describes on the github preview site.

$preview_url = new LinkPreview( $your_page->your_field );
$parsed_url = $preview_url->getParsed();


Also, that solution on that site is not the only solution available, as this functionality has been a fairly common request for a number of years. So you might want to search around for an option (e.g., jquery) that may better fit your needs.
