Subject Button styles
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2012 15:27:36 GMT
Hi all,

I would like to suggest a few things regarding the buttons throughout
the application:

1. They should all be plain (class btn) unless it can be justified why
they should be of any other style. See below for criteria.
2. Primary actions should always be more prominent than secondary actions.
    One specific example is that while editing a wiki article the user
is more likely to want to submit changes then to cancel. It's why
he/she started editing the article for in the first place.
3. Prefer safe actions.
    Again in relation to wikis, it's easy to delete a version that has
been submitted accidentally. If the user accidentally clicks cancel,
all edits have to be rewritten. That causes grief. Nevermind deleting
a page accidentally.

In practice this could be implemented by making the Submit changes
button more prominent (btn-primary), while potentially styling the
Cancel, Delete version and Delete page buttons like links, which
appear less prominent than buttons.

What do you think?

- Joe
