Description

I run a blog....politicaldog10. com....

up to 3.9 I could drag and drop images on my mac using safari.....

after 3.9 I cannot do so....

I have been complaining as have others that the TinyMCE or whatever upgrade has made that action impossible...

I have been told (As have others) to be patient...
I have been for a couple of weeks....
But I STILL cannot highlight a image...drag it into my text box...let it go..and whaLA!
have the image in the post....

It's annoying....

I am told maybe 3.9.2
I get to see EVERYONE getting excited about 4.0 while me and others are told to sit on on our hands without images in our posts....

Thank You for listening...
But the problem STILL persists.....

Lastly....

I love wp....
But this issue is getting short changed.....

  • Keywords needs-patch added
  • Summary changed from drag and drop of text and images gone in 3.9 to drag and drop of text and images gone in 3.9/back in Firefox NOT in Safari

I can now cut and paste from Firefox.....

Drag and drop as a 1-2-3 thing is GONE....

And it seems that Wordpress is DISCRIMINATING against the Apple Safari browser and really does NOT care that are doing so....

THIS ISSUE IS NOT RESOLVED !

I'm assuming you mean the (ill fated) feature in Firefox and Safari where the browser would insert an entire image as base64 encoded string in contentEditable, i.e. the image is encoded as text and saved in the database together with any text you typed.

This is a bad practice and very undesirable. It was disabled by default in the TinyMCE 'paste' plugin, but can be turned back on from a plugin. Note that this only works in the above browsers, not in Chrome, Opera or IE. There are currently no plans to turn this on by default in WordPress.

By far the best way to add an image to a post is by uploading the image file to the Media Library, then inserting it in the post. This may involve couple of extra steps: saving the image file on your computer first then uploading it, but works much better for your site's visitors.
