This might be more appropriate in the Board forum, so feel free to move it.

I haven't seen many comments about this but the way photos are embedded in a post absolutely drives me bananas. I think the large div housing a small thumbnail is kind of tacky for a lack of a better term, but more importantly the images when clicked should come up in a lightbox versus going to the gallery page. Our forum is very very photo intensive and a user having to click through to a page to view every photo would drive them mad. This is probably one of the biggest things holding me back from migrating our board from another forum product, and yes I already hold an IPB license :)

I totally agree with this.

Clicking the image should open it in a lightbox, not take you to the gallery!!!

Also, this should be suite wide, including blog's etc. Looks pretty awful having those big grey boxes in a blog.
