2.5 bugs and design problems (15 posts)

    Since I've been continuously bumping into bugs and clearly bad design options in 2.5, instead of creating a new topic each time I bump into something I'll just post here.

    BUG:
    As stated here the "view site" button jumps into the wrong place if you don't have a blog title. How could anyone have missed this?

    BUG:
    After uploading images into media uploader's gallery, you have to re-enter image settings like size and link, even if you changed and saved it during upload process.

    BUG:
    You have to constantly save changes while editing a new post if you want to preview it, otherwise it won't (usually?) display those changes.

    DESIGN:
    As stated here WP will limit your maximum image width no matter how huge your theme is and there's no way to change that max width except by re-coding.

    Should be a dashboard setting.

    v. 2.5 and IE 7:
    Is there a php config problem that causes some WP sites not to display (browser says "this page cannot be displayed")?

    I can't get my site to load on IE7, even with Kubrick as the default.

    Like I described in other threads, I have major problems with the widget screen. It's simply impossible to work with...!

    DESIGN:

    How is it possible that WP2.5 doesn't include a font size button by default?

    Wow, I didn't even notice there's no button for font size in the editor, oh well, you will just have to do it the old school way.

    <span style="font-size:10pt">YOUR TEXT HERE</span>

    Of course, you can also edit the default configuration of the editor. Open /wp-includes/js/tinymce/tiny_mce_config.php with a text editor, find $mce_buttons and add fontsizeselect into the array.

    $mce_buttons = apply_filters('mce_buttons', array('bold', 'italic', 'strikethrough', 'fontsizeselect', '|', 'bullist', 'numlist', 'blockquote', '|', 'justifyleft', 'justifycenter', 'justifyright', '|', 'link', 'unlink', 'image', 'wp_more', '|', 'spellchecker', 'fullscreen', 'wp_adv' ));

    (the above code placed the font size selector after the strike through button)

    There's a list of buttons you can add to the editor, and you can find the list on TinyMCE's website.

    I disagree that you need a font-size button in the editor. That kind of styling should be done in your theme stylesheet and you should then asisgn classes to your span. A well designed theme should have everything you need in it's style sheet: if it doesn't, add it in there.

    I see your point but you speak as a webdesigner. If there are a bunch of buttons in the editor by default why not include the precious font size for all of us common mortals and only then let the more advanced user decide? ;)

    I was simply offering advice. Inline font-sizing is a presentational aspect and belongs in the stylesheet, not the HTML. In this case, you'd create a few classes in your stylesheet for different font sizes, and apply those classes to the span instead of the font-size. Anyway, sorry to derail your topic.

    All this stuff is moot anyway: Anyone who can actually do anything about this doesn't read this forum anyway, according to Otto42. Apparently we should all be contributing our feedback elsewhere.

    wow that was precisely my concern when i started the topic but simply thought it would be stupid to have created a "Requests and Feedback" category and don't check it... anyway thanks for the heads up.

    Heh, indeed, kinda silly to have a Feedback forum that no-one but the users read, isn't it? My incredulous response is here.

    kind of non sense..

    btw i understand your approach to font sizing but being a mofo lazy blogger i'd really prefer to use a button instead of custom coding every time i want to change font size in a post... having said that i did what haochi suggested with no effect.. any hint?

    I'm afraid I haven't investigated that side of the editor. If I find a solution, I'll let you know.

    Ok, I went to the TinyMCE's website, and I couldn't find a list of buttons to add?? Do you have a direct link to that list? BTW, I did what columbo79 suggested on adding fontsizeselector and it worked. Now, I want to add other buttons, but am having no luck on finding them??
