Uploads are not attached to a post when created using QuickPress
|Reported by:||iwords||Owned by:|
It is impossible to attach a file or image to a post created using QuickPress on the Dashboard.
Since QuickPress doesn't have an autosave feature like the full-blown editor, a post ID isn't generated until the post is either saved or published - at which point the post's content is cleared from the QuickPress editor, so you can no longer attach a file to it anyway.
Currently, the only way to attach a file or image to a post written in QuickPress is to save it as a draft, then re-edit it using the full editor, which somewhat defeats the object of using QuickPress.
Just to clarify - you can upload images and insert them into the *body* of the post, but you can't upload images and have them stored as attachments using QuickPress at all.
