  • When adding a link, for heaven's sake, the dialog pop-up should include all options for links, in the pop-up dialog box.
  • The LINK NAME, THE URL ADDRESS, OPEN IN A NEW TAB should be ALL available IN THE DIALOG BOX when first adding a link.
  • Or when going back to an established link and you want to revise it or double check the link, the pop-up DIALOG BOX SHOULD HAVE ALL THE LINK OPTIONS YOU NEED RIGHT THERE.
  • No one should have to open a link dialog box and then have to click on other icons to revise or edit links, link names and to open in a new tab.
  • Also, having extra icons to press to make changes to links OR when double checking link formats, I have made mistakes because I press the wrong icon.
  • WORD PRESS PROGRAMMERS: Please make WordPress easier to use for web professionals and allow us to be more efficient at our jobs. By making WordPress more complicated than it should be, you are wasting the time of all the web professionals using WordPress.
