Another small thing: When I zoom into a photo, I expected to be able to click the black area around it and go back to the post. I didn't expect it to open the image as its own page. Kind of interrupted the reading flow.

If it has to open as its own page, I would personally prefer it open in a new tab. I'm not a fan of going back on pages.

Yeah, this is definitely expected behavior, and will be something we address.

With DEV being a less image-oriented site by nature, we didn't prioritize this, but now that Forem is breathing with new use cases, this is the kind of UX we will circle back on and improve upon.
