Stay in Media Manager instead of closing after click action
|Reported by:||beerpulse||Owned by:|
Media Manager in 3.4 stayed open after clicking 'set featured image'. Though a 'success' message didn't appear in the window, 'set featured image' disappeared and one could see in the background of the window that the featured image popped into view so it was evident that it had worked. It was then a one-click action to 'add image to post' because the buttons were conveniently next to each other. The window would then disappear.
Media Manager in 3.5 now has 'set featured image' and 'insert image' in two different panels/views. To do both actions on one post, it requires going into Media Manager twice because the Media Manager window closes after clicking either 'set featured image' and 'insert image'.
An enhancement would be to let the user exit Media Manager on his/her own when ready. A 'success' indicator next to 'set featured image' button could be helpful. Just keep the window open. If a person then wanted to exit to the post, they can just press escape or click off of the window & it disappears instantly (both faster than waiting for Media Manager to load up again after clicking 'Add Media').
-Have the window disappear if user has set both featured image and insert into post.
-Have a combo button where a user can both set as featured image and insert into post and then have the window disappear.
