Today in the Nightly: Site Icons, Text editor in Press This

Here are a few cool things that recently landed in trunk. They are available right now in the nightly build. Install the nightly, and try them out.

Site Icons

We’ve wanted site icons in core for a long time. #16434 was opened four years ago and will be resolved as fixed for 4.3.

 

Our crop controls are not easy to use on my iPhone 6+. The images overflow the right side of the screen. Horizontally and vertically scrolling an image bigger than the screen while working a rubber band select that resets when the image is tapped is not pleasant.

Text editor in Press This

Press This now has a Text editor for editing HTML, just like the standard editor in post-new.php.

 Padding for image settings

The Image Crop and Thumbnail Settings boxes received a little bottom padding.

And so that we are always aware of what our mobile experience looks like, here are those settings boxes on an iPhone 6+.

When you see a sidebar obscuring content on a phone, you can be pretty sure you’re witnessing lingering desktop bias. These screens were designed for desktops where you have room to use  sidebars. You can’t make a screen responsive and call it ready for a phone. The image flow effort is working on this.

Manage in the Customizer

Appearance > Menus received a “Manage in the Customizer” button to match Appearance > Widgets.
