Description (last modified by lloydbudd)

oEmbed should be removed from the UI -- admin (editor)

ENV: WP 2.9-beta-1 ++ (TRUNK r12296)

The current "Add media file from URL" starts with an "Embed a picture from a web site that supports oEmbed. (Aside, no reason to intro the term "picture" to the UI)

This disrupts the current work flow and creates a cognitive burden on the user -- "what's an oEmbed".

WP Trunk r12296 add media from URL dialog starts with oembed question

It should be removed from everywhere in the UI.

For 2.9 (already in beta), we should not include no UI for oEmbed, because I suspect it's too late to do it well -- will take some trial and error. Will open additional ticket(s) with recommendations.

The good news is the behavior is succinctly exposed by putting an oEmbed URL on it's own line in the editor.

Agree, will remove it later today. There are some other inconsistencies with oEmbed UI. Currently if a shortcode is inserted the visual editor replaces it with a placeholder similar to the Gallery one to better indicate it's position and look.

Such shortcode is inserted automatically then using the Add Video button and From URL tab in the uploader. However this doesn't happen when a URL is pasted directly in the editor or a shortcode is typed (a shortcode will still be replaced when switching Visual->HTML and back). This was geared more towards a separate "Insert Video" button.

We could probably remove this too until we have better understanding of the UI that's needed there.

Replying to azaozz:

Please, I was going to file a separate ticket for this... please let me know if still desirable.

Are there any appropriate filters so that I can add this back via a plugin? This change will ruin me, and I can no longer upgrade to the next trunk until I can find a workaround to put it all back.
