Over time, features and user interface elements in WordPress are removed or hidden from view. This generally occurs after a significant amount of discussion. Since WordPress is used by so many people, even a small percentage of users who depend on those features is a significant amount. Thankfully in most cases, features can be restored by using a hook, action, or filter.
If this sounds too difficult, consider using the new Restore Lost Functionality plugin developed by, Coded Art. As the name suggests, the plugin restores functionality removed or hidden from view. In its current state, it has three options. The features it can restore varies depending on the version of WordPress you’re using.
I tested the plugin by restoring the title field when inserting links and discovered it works as expected. As WordPress evolves, Coded Art plans to continue restoring features for those that depend on them. If there’s a feature you’d like to see this plugin restore, let Coded Art know in the comments.
