Drag and drop files into the Visual Editor
|Reported by:||kovshenin||Owned by:||azaozz|
I recently thought that it would be nice if we could insert images into posts and pages, simply by dragging and dropping them into the editor. This could be a real time saver when composing. I made a really simple video to demonstrate how this might work, of course really really draft. I hope that we can consider this as proof of concept. I think that with this little upgrade we might fill in a hole in UX as when people are used to drag and drop in their text and document editors, like Google Docs, Microsoft Word and so on.
There are quite a lot of decisions to be made though, like what would be the size of the dropped image, how will the UI look to show upload progress, are multiple files allowed, how error messages are shown and so on.
I'll attach a little (very poorly written) plugin that does this together with a small patch to plupload, if you'd like to give it a spin. Please let me know your thoughts!
