Unable to link to Google Photos?

Why can’t we use Google Photos on this forum, when I try to post a link it just says. Your post contains a word that’s not allowed: photos.app.goo.g.

Why is this?

Because some sites, including Google Photos, will only create a ridiculously long abomination of a link in the post, and don’t even allow for the creation of a OneBox thumbnail in the GADC post.

Please feel free to download those photos and post as photos on GADC.


That would be ace if I knew how to do it.

What device are you using?

I’m on a chromebook, the frustrating thing is the post is ready to go, in the preview the pictures are there.
