Description

As every function (posts, media, taxonomy, insert media popups) of wordpress came in different time, it looks differently, it must be operated differently, it is much more difficult to maintain and develop, it use different actions and filters for generaly the same thing ...

I have walked through the all this pages, created wireframes and point out the differences and similarities.

And i have came up with the IMO very simple solution, that would standardise all these screens, so they coul all share the same code and they will have all the functions, but in the same time they will be cleaner and easier to use, the same function will be on the same place and will be named the same, and it could higly reuse most of the code. And what's more, it ads some new interesting possibilities, e.g. mass edit.

Please download the enclosed PDF with wireframes - there are the commented current pages at the begining, the last pages are then my new proposal.

I think that now is the perfect time to do it, as there are plans for adding meta to taxonomies for the WP 4.4 and this my approach would IMO save a lot of effort and use it for bigger good.

Hi @thomask,
This looks like a great idea but also a huge project that will need the cooperation of many teams.
To big for one ticket. Maybe you can propose it as a featured project.

Replying to rianrietveld:

Thank you Rian, i know it is too complex, actually imo it might be a key feature for some wordpress 4.x (5.x) version. But i do not know how to propose it as a featured project.

You are far more experienced then me, please if you like the idea - could you post it to the proper team for me?

Thanks
