Can we solve the Featured Image usability issues?
|Reported by:||TomAuger||Owned by:|
Once you're within the Media manager thickbox, the usability for "Set as featured image" drops significantly.
For one thing, if you entered the Media manager through the "Set featured image" link on a post or page, the "Insert into Post" button needs to go - it's not appropriate for this use case and, given that it's bigger, brighter, and shinier than the humble "Set as featured image" link, is likely to be clicked in error. This is a common user error we're observing in new users.
Second, unlike the Appearance > Header Image upload functionality, set featured image does not get a custom crop, which would be extremely useful. Can we borrow from the Header Image process? It seems to make sense, given that the Featured Image is often used as a Header Image.
