Does the?t link rule apply to photos?
I have been asked by fellow Squids about text links and do they apply to photos if url is put in the text rather than capsule.

The photo capsule is designed to give the source of the photo along with the url. I'm not sure why someone would want to include the url in the text. It would most likely violate the 2 links domain rule, unless they are links to well known news sources, including wikipedia.
You cannot use a photo URL in a text capsule, it only shows the URL, not the photo. To show photos there is a special 'photo capsule' which is the only capsule to be used for photos.
Here are a couple of links to sources about photos:

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...

I noticed that we were recently given a neat feature when including links within a text capsule where we now have a dropdown box of all our published hubs to chose from besides being able to put in an outside URL. ...
