The only problem is that the links generated by the “link summary” feature seem to count towards the link count for the post. For new users that can only post up to two links at a time, this makes it impossible to use the “link summary” feature, depending on the link being summarized…
For example, I recently tried to paste a github link on the rust forums, and hit this error message:
Is this intended? It seems like the two-link limit should only apply to links within the post text area, not the generated markup (since that pulls in other links from things like the “link summary”).
