Image borders & padding in GUI (6 posts)

    Ever since the last update, I am unable to easily add borders and padding to images in posts. I don't understand why this was removed from the interface. I do not want to muck with CSS every time I need to tweak an image. Please for the love of god bring this feature back.

    It was moved to plugin/ theme territory. Are you sure CSS is more repetitive? That doesn't sound right.

    Yeah I found all the threads, and it looks like others are suggesting this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-image-styles/

    Still, this is a terribly newbie unfriendly change to the editor and I don't know why anyone thought it was a good idea. I've been a faithful advocate of WordPress for going on 10 years, in part because of its ease of use for non-tech folks. Relegating these kinds of things to plugins or CSS only makes it more difficult for non-developers to use the platform.

    Thanks for your reply in any case, Andrew, appreciate the speedy response.

    Another point against plugins/ themes it is that developers have argued that it's just another dependency that you have to maintain.

    But I think it then comes down to a disagreement on WordPress' philosophy of Decisions, not Options; moving options into plugins.

    The same problem here on padding, the former method was far superior to the need for a user to dive into developer territory with html or CSS code changes. I hope this is duly noted before 4.0 is released. In the meantime the support threads on the above linked plug in don't look promising. Looking for another way to pad if anyone knows of a plug in or solution other than the coding changes which are far too slow.

    The Advanced Image Styles plug In works perfectly for me and I appreciate that it's available and free. I do hope that html5 affords the ability for this to return to core very soon. Thanks for the tip fleep.
