    Limitation is CSS styling
    With current DOM I can't do this position for item gallery because I need to add the styles to modal_wrapper div and that div doesn't have an ID. Instead the child has the ID ( #item_gallery ) and there's no parent selector in CSS.

    Is it possible for you guys to add an ID to modal_wrapper too ?

    Image quality issue in feed
    Here's an example of the image quality issue in mobile devices.

    An item in posts list page :

    Same item in single post view page :

    Notice the image quality diferences? I understand that images should be lighweight in the list but maybe a better image quality and lazy loading images will be a better solution.

    Maybe the thumbnail creator script in SE platform is being too aggressive in quality adjustments and compression.

      Stepan Mazurov Yup, we know about it. The issue is pretty deep seeded and hard to catch all cases of, it is something we have plans to fix entirely. The screenshot is also 2x of what the user sees, so the issue is amplified.

    Option to create Template Files in SE Cloud admin panel
    We're working on a new SE Cloud theme and it's almost done. I had issues with the development process and I would like share it with SE developers and management.

    Working on themes will be more streamlined if we cloud create layout and page templates from admin panel instead of creating files in local server..

    With SE Cloud template engine, local development is impossible. If I work on a new project on local server, to view the changes in source code every single time instead of simply pressing a F5 key, I have to take these steps :

    1) Locate local directory
    2) Compress the directory
    3) Open SE Cloud admin panel
    4) Go to theme choosing page
    5) Choose file
    6) Click on Upload
    7) Error message ( Because of duplicate package )
    8) Choose file again
    9) Confirm overwrite & upload
    10) Refresh  page

    Another way is to use the built-in text editor. The editor is fine for small modifications but starting and working on a new project with that editor is impractical. To simple create a new layout file I have to :

    1) Download the package 
    2) Locate the local directory
    3) Unzip the package
    4) Create the file
    5) Modify package.json
    6) +10 steps I mentioned above

    I have to repeat these tasks over and over and switch between local and online servers continuously.

    SE Cloud is a great platform, full of potentials and with a nice template engine but developing on it for developers is tedious and full of unnecessary tasks for achieving simple goals.

    In the era of live reload, command line composers and packagers, single line app deployments and IDEs with automation plugins, SE Cloud development process is falling behind. Is there any plans to improve this ? The ability to create layout and template files and a better text editor with auto completion will make the process easier.

    Our new theme for SE Cloud will be published soon and I hope there's enough SE Cloud customers out there and we can continue developments for this platform.

      seTweaks Another thing I noticed is the image compression. I understand that you have to keep the storage and bandwidth costs down but the current image compression level is -very- aggressive. It reminded me the days when I was developing for dial up internet connections.

      Stepan Mazurov you can create layout templates by not adding a URL. Only issue is that it gets assigned a UUID instead of a name, so you would need to access it using that.

      > Is there any plans to improve this ?

      Yes, we have plans much to what you're describing. I come from front end development and know the pain well. In addition to using existing tools and as close to live reload as we can get, we're hoping to expose more of the inner workings of widgets via handlebars/mustache templates. No promises as we're still in planning stages and plans can change.

    Quick question about media files in SE Cloud themes
    When developing a cloud theme, how can I reference to a media file in the theme package ?

    For example I have a CSS file in the package and I want to link it in the header template. What would be URL to this CSS file ?
