  •  When are you going to fix it so my (5+ / 0-)

    title box in a draft becomes live and I don't have to delete the verbiage and when is the link iine in comments going to become active and without the extra http which I then have to delete. This happens on Mac Book.

    Also, how come youtubes without the http in the embed code don't embed. WordPress can be set to embed with just the URL. I prefer the old code because then I can edit it to get rid of some of the ads and referrals. But the missing http doesn't bother Wordpress.

    •  Better embeds will be part of the new comment (6+ / 0-)

      system.  They'll work like you say- just drop in the url of supported external site, and content will automatically embed.  

      New story editor is "next".  To be honest, is probably still a while off.  I'm working on high level design now, and will take this to heart.  

      I'm not sure what you are asking about the comment link.  Could you please expand?

        there is a place to put URLs for links. When I click on link, a little box opens with the http already there. But it isn't active. That is, I can't just hit paste and have to URL appear. When I paste in the URL, the http that's already there stays either at the front or at the back and in neither case will the link "work" Any number of people have complained about that and somebody has to come along and "fix" their link. Some people probably don't bother.
        It's not just my MacBook, but it was there on the old and is on the new.
        I don't know why the link box doesn't go active automatically. Perhaps it has to do with the multiple functions associated with linking to an image.

          New commenting interface will have new link interface.  Hopefully it will treat you better.  There aren't plans to fix the old interface.

          •  same prob on win7 and firefox.... (5+ / 0-)

            and can we please get group notification of group kosmails?

            Is that really that difficult to code?  I have been complaining since 4 went live and been told multiple times it's coming....

            Really if we could actually delete kosmails so they actually go away and get notice when it's a group mail, Groups could live up to their enormous potential....NOw it requires cking 10 times a day or missing the important town hall or protest or whatever....It is a real damper on the boots on the ground that messaging was supposed to help enable.
