I love WordPress. I do WordPress sites for a living. I know the platform well, and I come from a background of coding html/css sites in notepad and Dreamweaver. I have to say that as great as WordPress is the media manager is absolutely awful. It is without a
doubt one of the most awful, horrible, inept, inadequate, pathetic pieces of software I’ve ever seen. It’ absolutely bewildering how such a robust platform has such a completely incompetent, incomplete, inefficient, largely useless interface for such a critical part of the user experience. I literally find it bewildering.
1. No folders. I know, it’s a DB, who cares, there should absolutely be folders, unlimited levels of nesting, etc. I manage sites with 5k + images. It’s utterly absurd not to have a folder structure for organization. It’s completely insane. Sorry, tags, searching, etc. is a very poor substitute. A massive waste of time.
2. 20 items per page and only a post.php hack to increase. Are you friggin kidding me? This must be a joke.
3. Tiny thumbs in the insert dialog. Completely useless.
etc., etc., etc ad infinitum
Using the WP media manager is like trying to do a rubik’s cube blindfolded in a straightjacket buried under ten feet of sand.
Sorry to be so reserved and conservative in my critique. I definitely held back considerably.
