  • Mods may strip out the code, hopefully not… This is a fairly extensive list for completing some basic tasks that NEED to be implemented directly into WordPress

    Can you please move the last block of code into pastebin? The maximum number of lines of code that you can post in these forums is ten lines.

    some basic tasks that NEED to be implemented directly into WordPress

    To suit your needs, perhaps. But to suit the needs of every one of the millions of WordPress users? I don’t think so. This is the common downside of any multi-purpose application. It always has more in it than you need but the very bits you would remove are vital for someone else.

    A lot of the above items add as well.

    I understand your point, but certain things just make sense to go together, like the ability to submit a post to be reviewed (built in), but the system does not notify anyone to review it.

    No way to change the login page from the admin section. That seems like a common sense one to me.

    HTML in excerpt… When I started out, I thought I was really screwing something up when links were not displayed on the homepage in the excerpt.

    Self-pings and trackbacks in comments? – That should definitely be a settings checkbox.

    Emails – Modification here seems like another no-brainer.

    Profile fields – Why should WordPress get to choose which social media options are the most important… Then NOT include Facebook and Twitter, really?

    Sorry for the rant… I’m just getting frustrated that my new site is close to complete and I had everything the way looking I wanted, then I install a final few plugins (one being Jetpack), now I have many more things to “hide”.

    esmi – Do you have any suggestions for hiding without disabling?

    Also, you replied to one of my posts last week, but never responded to my reply (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/set-minimum-height-and-width-for-featured-image)

    Do you have any suggestions for hiding without disabling?

    To be honest, it’s not something I’ve really played with a great deal. Thus far, I’ve been able to “hide” things from users by limiting their roles. Perhaps something like a role management plugin might help you?

    but never responded to my reply

    Sorry – I’ll have a look at it now. These forums aren’t exactly conducive to following up topics after about 24 hours or so if (like me) you tend to be involved in 60+ topics per day.
