Minor suggestions - submission form

1 +

Hey, guys... I've lost my list of minor items I'd been keeping, but will start with a couple of minor items that I re-noticed now.

1. I'd prefer in on-load of the submission form(s), the cursor would default to the "Choose a Topic" textbox at top of page, so I can just start typing and let the autosuggest magic work.... super minor, but it's a minor annoyance to me at least once a day.  

2. Slightly larger in scope, but I would love it if the Thumbnail portion of the submission form(s) would always allow entry of an image URL, rather than being a pure upload-only element.  It's a minor annoyance as well, but I've got a folder full of images I've had to save locally to upload for story/post thumbnails.

Hey James,

Interesting feedback as usual.

1. I'm a keyboard shortcuts over mouse sort of guy, so I appreciate your idea on saving a click.

2. This also makes a lot of sense. @aurora has raised this same issue in the past and we simply haven't gotten it in yet. This is, in essence, supported on Photo and Video posts (adding an image by url or upload to these post types adds it to the thumbnail list) but I can see where this specific option may be useful for these post types, as well as the others.

We'll take a look at getting these scheduled and I'll circle back with you.

Thank you!

Sweet, thanks!

I'd also add (since I just noticed it!) that having the cursor default to the textbox when you click "Reply" to a comment would be nice too. :)
