3.4.0 wish list
Is it possible to do the transliteration of the components?
I found that in the editor, if I double click (or click on link icon) on an anchor (link) that points to an external URL with http: and so on, then the popup window will display the URL.
But if I click on a link that points to a local page (eg. "/folder/something") then the popup will display an empty page.

So what I ask is to make the second case more similar to the first case Smile

Not sure but with Components Extended you can get around this issue, see screenshot below:

Two relatively small items to add to the wishlist:
  • attach more common CSS styles to classes instead of #ids or nested tags, so plugin devs don't need to re-style everything (the .text class is also not self-explanatory)
  • Make the default width something like 1280px instead of 960px, no one uses < 1024px screens anymore (I might add a PR for this if it is sensible enough)
Screen size vs. Window size

It is true that today's screens can be huge, more recently, even for the average web client.
But many users, in particular Mac/Linux users abhor viewing web pages full screen: (i) the layout sucks, too much empty space, neck pains...; (ii) utility of keeping additional windows in view for drag 'n drop, or just for reference (both ways)
This is all already addresses in 3.4

Not sure what the comments about classes or ids means..

I would like to suggest a plugin droplet or tag registration system. When a plugin requires the user to insert a droplet or tag on to a page, all of those could be readily selectable from a list.

Example - there is a Gallery plugin and a Calendar plugin installed.

Using the Gallery, you create galleries called Wedding, Dogs, House Projects.
This generates tags like gallery_wedding, gallery_dogs, gallery_house_projects.

Using the Calendar, you create event calendars called Monthly Meetings, Special Events, Parties.
This generates tags like calendar_monthly_meetings, calendar_special_events, calendar_parties.

Each plugin would register those tags to a common database.
When editing a page, you would be able to select from a drop-down list of registered tags to use on that page:

Usable Tags:
Calendar Plugin
- calendar_monthly_meetings
- calendar_parties
- calendar_special_events
- gallery_dogs
- gallery_house_projects
- gallery_wedding

Drag/Drop or Highlight/Add the selected tag on to the page. This would insert the tag on to the page like (%calendar_parties%) .

Someone with less coding ability could more easily add plugin components to pages with less error.
