Two small suggestions. (2 posts)

    I recently switched to WordPress after designing websites using Joomla for years. I don't mean to bad mouth Joomla cause it's good, but wow! WordPress is great. There are only two small suggestions.

    1. It would be nice to be able to not have to right click on "Visit Site" on the top right in Admin bar, in order to open the website in a new tab in order to stay in admin and have access to site. A new tab could open when clicking that link.

    2.It would be handy to have a "Publish + Add New" button, when creating pages.

    My third suggestion was going to be to have ability to change alter dimensions of an image by being able to click on it and drag the corners, but in the latest version of WordPress, that's possible. Thanks a million guys!

    Regards,

    A new tab could open when clicking that link.

    WordPress is doing a great deal of work to ensure that it complies as much as possible with WCAG accessibility guidelines. Having a link open a new tab by default would be a direct breach of those guidelines. You can chose whether to open the existing link in a new tab, or a new window, or the same tab. A disabled user would not have the same opportunities if that link defaulted to a new tab. Some would even be left stranded in the new tab because the Back button that they rely on so heavily was now effectively broken.

    It would be handy to have a "Publish + Add New" button, when creating pages.

    Whilst there are no obvious issues with this one, it would clutter up the page and would not be in line with the current WP philosophy of "Decisions, not Options".

    How would the changed image dimensions be rendered in the final site? Via markup or CSS? The former would be outright "Wrong(tm)" as image markup should not be used to change an image's dimensions. HTML was not designed to do this and browsers generally make a really poor job of it.

    CSS would be the better way to go but then I could see situations where people were uploading 3000px wide images, resizing them dynamically via this image editor and then complaining because their sites were so sluggish.
