The WordPress post editor has the word “Path:” in the bottom left corner of the text entry box. Nothing else, just “Path:”.
At first I had no idea what it means, and then as I type some more it says “Path: p”. “p?” What the heck does that mean? I’m a command line geek and I’m thinking is that some filesystem path within the WordPress world?
It turns out “Path:” indicates the tag hierarchy of the html you’re currently typing in. Like when you’re editing within a list it says “Path: ul >> li”. “p” means you’re in a paragraph block.
Everything else in WordPress has been intuitive so far, but “Path:” is bizarre.
How could it be done better? Or a better first question is, “Is it necessary at all?” I haven’t done enough blogging to know, but so far my answer is “no.”
PS: The WordPress spellchecker doesn’t know the words “blog” or “blogging.”
i can see how this would be weird (i have been using teleriks editor for sometime and they use the same convention so i am familiar with it)
