    Feature request: When viewing an inserted image that links to an external page (eg, Flickr), the current behavior is that clicking on that image takes you to the external site.

    Example:
    Code:
    [URL='https://flic.kr/p/JR8WMc'][IMG]https://c6.staticflickr.com/9/8576/28123042621_10dc64982d_c.jpg[/IMG]DSCF1404[/URL] by [URL='https://www.flickr.com/photos/asabet/']Amin Sabet[/URL], on Flickr
    Shows as:
    [​IMG]DSCF1404 by Amin Sabet, on Flickr

    I'd like to see it changed so that clicking on an image linked to an external page prompts you to choose between viewing in Lightbox or viewing on external site. This is one of the features my members miss since we removed Tapatalk.

    Thanks!

    Sure, here is a screenshot from Tapatalk. When I tap on the image which is embedded with a link to Flickr, it give me this prompt:

    If I choose "View in Gallery" I get a lightbox view. Follow link takes me to Flickr.
