Inspiration edit

Bugs edit

  • Loader image has bad transparency when used in the yellow-ish jquery UI modal box (white creepy edges)

Bugs / Feature requests edit

  • Edit inserted images
  • Make images in Wysiwyg mode visual
  • Add the image to featured picture instead of directly in the post (using post_image)
    • Implement this using checkbox, not as an insert in textarea. Use a hidden custom field (_pluginname_key), using some magic to fill wp_post_thumb (no overwrite)
  • Add to WordPress plugin directory, blog about it, do more PR :)
