Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 beta released

x is normally associated to close I think as used in, tabs, browser windows, lightbox type slideshows, etc.

I also agree that the trash also has other connotations.

Do we actually need an icon?

Those secondary links I want to keep subtle (not as buttons) as the screen looked a whole lot more cluttered when they were buttons.

Agree. They are clearly links, and follow a text/icon convention. Good enough.

Valid point about the delete icon – I will try the trash can and see.

Actually, every app on my phone uses this for deletion: ⛔️, though more of a flat style than that ugly emoji shite.

OK, regarding delete symbol, see the following tweets:

twitter.com/textpattern/status/738716587767779328

twitter.com/textpattern/status/738716915623952384

Whichever wins out, we will use. Just vote via the tweets, I think it’s been discussed enough here now :)

Since it’s now imperative that my first tweet be world-shatteringly important (given I’ve had an account for about six years and never tweeted) I’m going to vote here instead:

Cross.

(I think the red minus looks way too much like a no-entry sign).

For the same reason (although the account is 3 years old only, I think) I’ll also vote here:

“X” mark – aka cross.

Noted. My vote is also for cross. Will wait for poll result, plus your 2 votes.

Can’t imagine anyone will be confused either way in that context… especially with the red color.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 beta released

Hi Destry,

Can you snip that post into another thread – it’s worthy of debate on it’s own and something I do need to think about. That way we can keep this thread to 4.6 specific feedback.

Cheers!

Sorry, I thought I was in a different thread. The forum does that if your session times out and have to log in again; it puts you at some other location and you don’t realize you’re not where you thought you were.
