Users FAQ for wordpress.com

Donncha has released a FAQ for wordpress.com users which answers a lot of the most frequently asked questions.

One of the questions and answers is to the recent stripping of all inline styles and use of Javascript inside of posts. While stripping out Javascript is something I can understand, protecting the site from potentially dangerous scripts, HTML inline styles with CSS should be restored. I’m sure there must be some method of permitting inline tag styles to remain while stripping out specific dangers.

I’ll talk more about this later, but remember this. WordPress is user driven. If you don’t like what is going on, complain, loudly, with specific suggestions. Squeaky wheel and all that.

There have been some improvements in the Dashboard and with the exciting new live Post Preview, and we all look forward to watching WordPress grow under our fingers.

Thanks to Donncha for providing extensive information and working so hard with so many other volunteers on the WordPress development team, bringing us the latest and bestest WordPress code, although it is a bit limited on wordpress.com.

    Lorelle, out of interest, what styling features in CSS are you using and generally wanting to be able to do that you can’t anymore?

    p.s. your complain link is bad.

    Thanks for the heads up on the link – fixed.

    All CSS styles such as font-size, color, float, border, background color, width, height, padding, margins, and all text oriented styles.

    If I want to make this text BIG, then I should have the right to add a font-size that will increase it 120%. Or have a span that turns the text red.

    I’ll talk more about this in an upcoming post. There must be a way to strip out uncommon CSS styles that might offer a security risk.
