Editor, Media: Inline image toolbar obscured by selection, copy edit toolbar, iOS

Taping an image to bring up the inline toolbar results in a selection box around the image and the cut-copy-paste toolbar popping up. Depending on where you tap, the image toolbar can be unusably obscured. Tapping through to the buttons doesn’t always work. Editing posts that contain images is very frustrating on iOSiOS The operating system used on iPhones and iPads. devices. I often accidentally insert individual images into posts instead of galleries thanks to the media modal defaulting to individual insertion. Removing twenty images from content while dealing with the inline image bar is joyless.

Contrast with Android, which is well behaved.

iOS app site deletion, iPhone 6+

Testing site deletion with build on an iPhone 6+.

Some screenshots:

Here is the site after deletion:



  • On the delete confirmation screen, I didn’t read any of the text on my first time through. I saw a text input in a delete confirmation and assumed my password was needed. I pasted my password and noticed that it was shown in the clear. Hmm. I noticed also that the delete site button was still disabled.  Hmmm. Finally, I read the text and saw that I was being ask to perform a different kind of AYS gymnastic, typing in the site name.
  • Otherwise, the process was straightforward and worked.
  • Not pictured in the screencast: To test this I created a new site. If you are scrolled down the site list when adding a new site, you won’t see any acknowledgment that the new site was created successfully. You must scroll up to see the new site at the top of the list.

Profile: Profile editing, WP iOS Beta, iPhone 6+

Testing profile editing with iOSiOS The operating system used on iPhones and iPads. app betaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. Looks good. My only note is making About Me a textarea. Horizontally scrolling through a paragraph of text in a one line input field is awkward.
