So they added a new WYSIWYG editor in WordPress own app for iOS. And to my Initial amazement it looks like it handles images the correct way by first uploading them, and then gives you the different automatically created sizes done by the server. Maybe I’m finally able to upload images and have Retina support without having to use my Editorial workflow? But when looking at the generated HTML, the height and width of the images is set to zero. It points the URL to the full resolution image, even if you select a smaller one. Not good. If you save a draft, it forgets your image settings like alignment and title.
There’s still no way of selecting already uploaded images from the WordPress Media Library. You can only upload images stores on your iOS device.
But the first thing that strikes me is the omission of creating headlines. There’s bold, italic and even
strike through, but no H1, H2 tags for headers. there is a HTML button so you could still enter it manually in HTML. But that isn’t very user friendly.
So no WYSIWYG headers
Entering them manually in HTML and you can edit them in the WYSIWYG mode. A big omission of not having buttons for it I think. An other thing missing is a button for inserting <!–more–> in the document.
Here’s a friends Harley Davidson with a ProCharger supercharger. A good way of testing if Retina works.
Update: first try of uploading an image failed miserably. Let’s try it again…
It displays the full resolution image, even if you select one of the theme-created sizes. Not good…
If I can get image upload to work with a horrible hack with Python inside Editorial App, surely the WordPress guys should be able to handle XMLRPC? I haven’t seen one blog editor that handles images the right way or that doesn’t insert a lot of horrible HTML code in the posts. Why is this so hard to fix?
Update: new version, and still it uses the full image. It never remembers the alignment between saves. Not good. Back to Editorial for blogging.
