Support » Requests and Feedback » Quick & Bulk Edit Buttons for Media Library

  • As somebody said previously, “WP should be focused on developing the UI for content management – not developing gimmicky UI for changing layout presentation.”

    Welp, that’s what we got with 3.5. A whole lot of style change, and not much to make our lives easier.

    When can we expect to get a quick edit button for images, and better support for image taxonomies? Now that image taxonomies are better supported, I’d like to be able to leverage them by assigning them to large groups of images, but I can only do that by editing them one.

    at.

    a.

    time.

    It’s killing my brain from boredom.

    This is something that should not wait until 3.6.

    Have you considered joining in with core development?
    http://make.wordpress.org/core/

    Are there not smarter people than me who are already responsible for this area of the WP admin?

    There is always a need for people to contribute to WordPress’ development. New blood and new ideas are vital to sustain both the development of WordPress and its community. Not everyone involved in core s a coding genius and every one of them started somewhere.

    Go on! Dive in. 🙂

    Alright, FINE. I take your prompting to mean, “If you care so much about it, Skippy, YOU do it, because none of us are going to.”

    I really hope this is as simple as changing OPTION Quick Edit -> Media Gallery -> FALSE

    or something.

    No. It’s about becoming involved if you have ideas – rather than standing on the outside complaining. Any future development is only going to be as good as those involved in working on it.

    Then why don’t you tell everyone in this forum that, close the “Requests and Feedback” forum, and just replace it with a link to core development?

    All anyone is doing in this forum is standing on the outside complaining. Some of us are just doing it louder than others.

    Because you seemed to have a coding background & some specific ideas. WordPress needs new blood all of the time. *shrug*

    Ok, fair enough.

    I was just hoping that by posting this I could get the ear of whoever’s in charge of the Media Library. I have a lot of ideas for that section, and I was a little irked that it seemed like I was just being told to take a crack at it myself, so that I’d go preoccupy myself with that and quit whining about it.

    I’ll take a look at it, but I honestly think that there’s somebody else who knows a lot more about it than I do that would be able to figure it out a lot faster than I could, and code it a lot better to boot.

    Would that somebody please stand up?

    Perhaps you’re misunderstanding how core WordPress development works. No one person is in charge of the Media Library per se. Generally speaking, the development group, as a whole, prioritise what areas to work on in each development cycle, co-ordinators are chosen to take over various sub-projects and then everyone else pitches in where they can. It’s almost unheard of for anyone to take something on themselves. It’s very much a group effort with lots of discussion and analysis of the various new patches being suggested.

    If you keep an eye on the Core P2 blog, you’ll see when the Media Library is up for re-working again. Or if/when a suggestion is made to overhaul image taxonomies. That could be your cue to put forward your ideas. Even if they’re accepted at some stage, it will still be a group working on it together.

    Does that sound more reasonable?

    First off, I’m not a developer. Second, this is both a request and feedback.

    So, I complained of a copyright violation yesterday with someone running a 3.5 website. Whereas she was able to go into her Media Library and change the Caption and Alt tags so that it didn’t show any longer in the post, it still shows on the media post (attachment) page. Search engines are going to scoop that up soon, and that’s a big problem. That content needs to go ASAP, only she cannot figure out how to remove it.

    That should be simple.

    I’m just coming from reading another “Requests and Feedback” posting about the new Media Library http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-add-image-title-after-35-update – Esmi was moderating that post as well.

    Esmi: People are voicing legitimate and somewhat urgent concerns. If they can’t fix it themselves, either these forums are a place for them to find help, or to simply put it on the record that something needs fixed.

    @littlepackage: It is impolite to interrupt another poster’s ongoing thread with an unrelated question of your own. It causes significant problems for the forum’s volunteers and prevents us from being able to track issues by topic. Please post your own topic.
