#6379 closed enhancement (invalid)

Image Insert section is confusing, not properly separated from Image Editing

Description (last modified by markjaquith)

This whole section:

... is related to inserting that individual photo into the post, but it is slammed together with photo settings that you can change and save. We really need to demarcate the "Insert Image into Post" section better.

Other issues:

  • "None" alignment radio button is not selected by default.
  • The Link URL section is incredibly confusing. At first I thought that was where you could edit the filename.
  • Pressing input buttons to make your link URL selection is unnatural.

(In [7510]) Check the Alignment: None box by default for media insertion. XHTML validation. see #6379

  • Owner changed from anonymous to markjaquith
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Fixed the Alignment default selection issue.

My initial idea for separating this section was to change the background color. But it's in a table with cell-spacing, so even if you start a new tbody with a special class and give that tbody a different background color, it looks horrible because of the gaps between the cells that show through the white background of the page. And if you start a new table, you run into issues with the expand/contract code.

Maybe we just need a horizontal rule type of separation, and to move the Delete link up to the top somewhere. Could really use some HC/MT inspiration here.

Will be redoing the upload UI for 2.9. Will keep this ticket open as an enhancement to make sure we cover the issue in redesign.

Unfortunately not every issue mentioned here has been addressed.

Pressing input buttons to make your link URL selection is unnatural.

When editing an inserted image you still get the old UI with this selector.

(Edit: Though a new ticket to update this UI is probably the best approach here)

Ok, are you opening one? I actually find the switch between the new media modal and the old thickbox modal when editing an image already confusing by itself. Not sure if there's a ticket for that.
