Buttons are for clicking


The post is a bit old, but I love Paris Vega’s thinking on the WordPress Upload/Insert button:

Frequently, clients who are staring at the WordPress content editing screen ask me, “How do I upload an image?” As an experienced WordPress user/designer/developer I used to get blown away by how silly such a question sounded.

I caught this one on Twitter yesterday, and new UI ideas always get me excited. Thibaut Ninove, a web/UI designer from Belgium, has published his idea for moving the Upload/Insert icon from above the WYSIWYG editor and into the toolbar. He argues it could save space and makes more sense as a tool in the bar than in its current location.

I’m not completely behind this idea, but I would try it out if were a plugin.
