Overflow, zoomed – iOS web
This insisted on loading zoomed in a bit.
Dismissing follow – iOS web
Follow doesn’t dismiss with an outside tap. To dismiss, I tapped 3 dots and then tapped it again. Tapping follow to dismiss closes the popup but unfollows in the process.
Embed reflow – Macnchrome
Adding Twitter links causes vscroll stomping reflow, especially on posts with other embeds. This happens every time I paste an embed and every time I load a post with multiple embeds.
Whenever I edit a post with embeds, I wait 30 seconds before touching the keyboard due to the embed reflow. There’s no embed caching? Hmm, will Chrome’s
scroll anchoring help in this context? It’s the new default in Canary. Looks like it can be turned on via a flag in production Chrome. I’ll try it out.
Telegram’s image picker
Wishing our image pickers had accessibly sized images like Telegram. This is media flow I can see and use.
Double notifications – iOS app
Double notifications in the Hockeyapp beta. These persisted for awhile but then stopped.
Meanwhile, the Testflight beta didn’t double.
Inconsistent media display
This is how the iOS share extension works. If you share an image from another app to the WordPress app, it’s added to the post as a gallery. A relatively recent enhancement added the
idsparameter to the shortcode to specify the image being included there.
Yuck. Our history with media is marked by such inconsistencies. Recall when IO editor launched with single images posting as galleries. Users responded predictably.
Twitter embed doesn’t reflect updates
I updated a post and then tweeted it.
That shows the old text.
Browser tab titles – Macnchrome
Which post am I editing in each tab?
Non interactive notification – iOS app
Aside, notion: A marked up set of screenshots naming the various ui elements would help these discussions. A new section in the dev docs for a visual glossary of terms.
Working with text – Macnchrome
Moving links and blockquotes around in the visual editor isn’t so friendly. I often switch to the html editor when reorganizing living documents. There, I…
- scan through the tag soup
- rearrange blocks and links
- mess up tags in the process
- look for revisions in Calypso so I can revert
- fail to find revisions since Calypso doesn’t have revs yet
- switch to wp-admin
- find post
- dig through revisions
- restore old revision
- back to Calypso editor
- reload to get restored rev
