I think I see what the issue is here. Basically this looks like it's "hot linking" from photobucket so the limit is from the number of photos that can be linked to from one thread. This restriction was in place to encourage people to use the attachment feature so the images will be stored on our server, reducing the risk the image links will break in the future. I have removed the limitation and you should be able to post more now.

John, your photos are amazing, I get hungry looking at all your posts! Any chance you would be willing to try the attachment from URL feature so the images would be hosted locally on our server? The reason I ask is that with time, I'd like to add a random photo feature to our website where the images would be seen on the forum home page. It sure would be great to have your tasty shots available for this.

Are you uploading photos to PhotoBucket simply to share them here? If so, then you can simply upload them here instead. If you like PhotoBucket and use that for other reasons then you can use the URL tool to paste the URLs of the images there which will then pull them from PhotoBucket over to our server. You can paste in the URLs to the images on the same page that Janet pointed out above, you just scroll down.

There is a downside to attaching the images, and that is it could take a bit longer to put them in the post exactly where you want them. For example, when you upload them they will show at the bottom of the post unless you use the [attach] BBCode. So if the attachment ID is 12345 then you would put [attach]12345[/attach ] anywhere in your post where you wanted the image to show up.

These extra steps might make it harder for you to post the same thing so if you find the proposed process too difficult, by all means, keep doing things the way you have. If you want to load the images to our server, they will make for tasty thumbnails to show others the good cookin' that's going on here.

No thanks, I think I will keep the rights to MY PHOTO, by hot linking it from my site.
