Simple change for "add media" on select - WordPress editor

  1. Travis



    I'd really like to submit this idea (picture below) to the UX folks. Should I start a new idea post for this?

  2. No, the project is on-hold right now.

    You can read through http://make.wordpress.org/ui/tag/ceux/ to see some of it (and where the design is going). This particular change would be totally done differently.

    Would that change actually effect the icons that display when you click on an image?

    It actually looks like the edit media interface will be built into the galleries UI, so we can close this idea: https://twitter.com/nacin/statuses/395613463076417536

    Mika, Travis, if you don't mind me throwing in my 2ยข worth here.

    I went to the links that Mika gave and spent some time reading over and looking at the different mockups looking over the chat records etc.

    And from what I can tell, I could be wrong, but what I see and read isn't addressing the actual issue that Travis has brought forth, the icons you see AFTER an image has been added in the Editor.

    Maybe they are going to bring forth that idea, but I didn't see any kind of mention of it. But then again I reserve the right to be wrong :)

  6. You're not wrong. The answer is more complicated, however. If we totally change HOW you insert images, then the 'replacement' of images will have to reflect that. So my example doesn't really apply since the interface may not look like that at all :)

    The idea with the mockups was to totally flip how content 'blocks' are added, which would change images.

  7. Any Admininstrator should be able to replace a file in the media library by uploading a new file in its place. As mentioned above, there is a plugin for this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/enable-media-replace/

    However, this should be available also for free WordPress.com users, as part of the core.

    PS. To benchmark, see how easily it's done in Google Drive.
