I would prefer not. Linking to an external host just for photos just breaks up the flow of a nice writeup, and many I suspect aren't willing to setup and maintain a blog somewhere else they can link to.Yeesh. I can raise the limit but 52 seems excessive and must make that thread slow as hell to load.
Might I suggest a shared Google Photos album or something instead?
Use thumbnails for those versions? have smaller posts that adhere to the limits?
While looking for those found that the search seems broken though. When searching for my posts in this subforum, it gave me 1 page of results with a random pick of posts going back to 2009 and wouldn't show me any others. Guessing its still trying to index everything?
