I've been having a number of issues with the Front-end Editor since upgrading to version 2, which has forced me to reinstall the old version.
- The new edit overlay has a glitch in Google Chrome. Whenever I mouseover the text area, it instantly causes the browser to scroll up in a very glitchy way. This doesn't happen in Firefox, but as Chrome reaches very high levels of standards compliance, I think this is worth looking into.
- The introduction of the drop-down menu for editing categories and other taxonomies has resulted in a loss of functionality. Most posts on the website that I administer fall under more than one category. However, whenever I edit categories from the front-end, I can only select a single category.
- Often when I make edits, it causes image-related data to break. For example, most posts on the website that I administer have an image with a CSS class and a caption. However, using the front-end editor now destroys the caption and somehow removes the CSS class on the image. This did not happen with the previous plugin.
Even if you can't reproduce the first and third issues, the second issue must be reconsidered. This is a really useful plugin, but categories are incredibly important for how our website organises content: I can't risk having data accidentally lost because a plugin erases multiple categories.
