#17046 closed feature request (duplicate)

Replace Insert/Edit Link "class" dropdown

As of the upgrade to 3.1, the "class" dropdown has been removed from the "Insert/edit link" pop-up box. I'm requesting that this feature be added back to the next release.

This thread <http://wordpress.org/support/topic/insertedit-link-missing-class-dropdown-in-31> on the forums shows the initial conversation and support for bringing this feature back.

This comment on the trac <http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/11420#comment:29> shows when/why it was removed.

There are many other instances on the forums of people using this feature for adding custom functionality without the use of additional plugins.

Here's the wordpress-dev conversation that sealed its fate.

Similar ticket, with Nacin's take.

While I agree with the usefulness of this feature, I think the core-devs have decided this is now advanced/plugin territory.
