    In the post screen, cause the permalink link preview to update in real time when the title is modified.

    Oh, a feature I forgot about:


    Create a simple microformat for CC/PD pictures and allow searching of public stock image databases from the media integration panel. Think - "oh I need an illustration for topic x..." Click on flickr or wikimedia commons, choose appropriate license and search, and get a list of images that fit the criteria. Choose download/embedding and click insert. There was a plugin like this (only less integrated) but it's been disfunctional for ages (flickr manager).

    Using WP3.1RC-1 I've found custom post types to be far more limited in application than they need be.

    For example, there is as far as I can see no way to change the way a custom post type is treated from 'like a post' to 'like a page' unless you edit the theme. But since plugins are how you build new apps with this powerful new feature, it is severely limiting their usefulness and ease of application, if every such plugin has to have the website's theme tailored for it to work effectively.

    An example customisation would be for is_page() to be something that can be altered for a custom post type.

    Ideally WP would have a set of behaviours defined, each aligned to the standard types (post, page, archive etc.) and for the custom post type to be able to say: "treat me as if I am /like/ type y". So themes render me as if I am y, even though I am type x, and no theme has ever head of type x.

    A natural extension of this will be the ability to define custom behaviours (perhaps a better term would be "display pattern"?), in which case a theme can be written to do something particularly bespoke for this new kind of data object.

    P.S. In the mean time, if anyone knows how to make a custom post type appear to a theme as if it were a page rather than a post PLEASE let me know! Its a major handicap to plugin writers until this can be done.

    - An option to include scripts/styles inline, instead of linking to them
    - Minify html, css, js (remove double spaces, line breaks, etc.)

    I wish WordPress sites could network together, creating one seamless back-end between each site. You wouldn't friend a contact on a single social site, but connect your website and your identity with theirs.

    Thanks for all the suggestions/feedback! We're closing the thread now so that we don't inadvertently miss any posts. The core team meetup will be January 10-16, and the results of our annual "vision quest" will be posted to http://wordpress.org/news/ when it's over.
