Subject Re: Ticket #279 - Images rendered in activity feed
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2012 13:15:31 GMT
Great to hear from you Tom!

I think for a quick solution I could live with not displaying in the 
short term. Alternatively, swapping the image for a placeholder image 
might work.

I could see the visibility of images as being something configurable 
though. For tall images, perhaps we could just scale them back to some 
maximum height.
