Problem with deleting the contents after copy + paste of a picture! (6 posts)

    Hello
    I have the following issue:
    If a contributor/editor/author is doing a copy + paste of a picture after update/submit for revision all the previous content will be deleted upon hitting the button.
    I want to mention that this process is like go to a folder with images do CTRL+C on a picture, go to wordpress post editor and hit CTRL+C.

    If there is a solution to just disable this will be perfect, or anything that can help me fix this pls.
    We have hundreds of users and cant control this issue.

    Thank you!

    Wouldn't it be safer to use WordPress to insert an image?

    WordPress Editor> Insert Media.

    This way the images are registered in WordPress and the markup is generated for you. The problem might come from trying to copy a physical image directly into the editor.

    I know, but since we have a lot of users they have reported this issue even if i explained that it's not the right way to insert an image to a post.

    Now i have to figure it out how to block it or how to make it work.

    PS. The funny thing is that i have a test site (copy of original) and there i dont have this issue ... now i just have to figure it out wich of the files have been modified and this will take a while.

    Can you recreate it yourself on your live site? Or are you just taking them on their own words?

    Yes i've recreate it on my own with a contributor account.
    Funny thing is, on Mozilla Firefox i can do copy + paste on a picture, in Google Chrome i cant .... that should do the trick, but i dont know how.

    If it wasn't for the fact that you can't recreate this in your sandbox, i would have left it at unique browser behaviors.

    So you experience this problem in the editor, so have you installed any plugins that modified your editor page? Also, try temporarily erasing your functions.php.
