A couple of (small) issues with WordPress

Having been using wordpress for a little while now, a couple of things bug me. Don’t get me wrong, it is an amazing tool, and does its job well, but, as always with any software product, there are a couple of little niggly things.

Maybe its possible to do some of the things I mention below, but I cannot see an obvious way. If there is, please let me know!

  1. Adding categories from the write post page. This is a no-brainer. Currently, to add categories, I have to save my post, and navigate a couple of pages away to be able to add a category.
  2. Intelligent URL transforming. Change `images/something.png` to something like (in my case) `/g/images/something.png`. This way if my blog moves in the future, all my image links don’t break. Admittedly, it is a small problem, so this one is a nice to have. Not sure if this is possible with the different plugins (I am using Markdown).

Thats it at the moment. Two slightly annoying things, both of which have a workaround, so I suppose I will just live with it. 😉
