Limit the number of external links in a post

Post by Biker on Wed Jan 15 2014, 00:42

Consider to add the option for the admin of the forum, to allow only a number of external links per post.
In some forums (about travelling for example) members hotlink photos from photobucket/imageshack/tinypic and can put up to 50 or more photos per post. That causes the page to become very "heavy" for older PC's or for limited bandwidth internet connections and some members can't see any photos at all, because the link breaks.

I tried in my forum to inform the members about this problem,but they always keep "forgeting" it, and post many photos in one post, causing the problem i mentioned before. I would like to have the ability via admin control panel to set the number of external link, say to about 3 or 5 per post.

This would be nice for users who have poor internet connection since images are one of the main reason why their browsers load slow. Voted yes.

I also voted yes, having come from using Dial-Up for so long. I think this would be super helpful.
