Two things about WP 2.5 which I hope to change

The Save and Publish button is too close together. I have hit on the wrong button. I am sure other bloggers too have hit the publish button when they actually wanted to save a post.


The other is the category part. Normally, I can see it on my left side panel and easily pick a category. Right now, it is way below at the end of the post. that means I need to scroll down to pick the categories and then, scroll up to publish. Usually, I totally forget to categorise my post because I didn’t see the Category.


Yesterday, I also found a bug in one of my blog. I couldn’t edit the timestamp. Normally, when I have paid posts, I need interims. So, yesterday, I wrote a bunch of interims (that is regular post) and when I tried to insert a new post in between, I couldn’t get the Edit timestamp link to work. In the end, I have to copy and paste all the posts into new post. Blek, I do not know why only one blog has that problem while the other blogs on the same server doesn’t.

    I don’t have the problem of the Save and Publish button. But I guess having a bigger space does create a safety net.

    But I do have to agree with the categories comment.

    Plus, trying to upload and insert images to position between paragraphs now is a pain in the butt. And when you upload using WordPress now, they’ve a default class assigned when you select alignment and size. I’ve to keep removing them and add my own class for the theme.

    I wish there was an option to at least turn off this auto-assignment of the class by the WordPress engine.

    As with any wordpress upgrade I never jump on the bandwagon immediately. There are always problems that crop up no matter how much beta testing was done.

    Agreed with Danny regarding the image class, and also with regards to the seemingly unusable alignment and image size on the upload menu.

    It’ll also be really great to allow the use of drag and drop to reposition the default positions of the categories, timestamp, etc.

    Wow, you guys are so technical. LOL. I hope they will note all these and make some changes in future release.

    Those post categories are really annoying. Been used to them placed handily in the sidebar, I would just write a post, and then while scrolling up to check for errors, just select the categories on-the-fly, as a natural gesture. Now I have to look all the way down.

    No problem with those buttons, but older people with less precise mice may have problems with that (no offence intended).

    I guess I’ll explore it a bit deeper and then come back with the results.
