I wonder if it would be complicated to add a clear search button to that widget, next to the lollipop

If there’s space, sure. That’d be way better than a potentially obscure clickable link on the heading, as it’d be more localised to the search action.

I’d have to defer such a decision to the UI guru, though. Space is already tight on mobile for the search widget as it is now.

Right now, with my Sandspace theme, the search field (input field) can display ~24 characters on an iPhone SE, portrait mode. I could make the input field narrower to accommodate the additional button, I don’t think that would affect the functionality of the widget much. Sandspace use a much larger font-size than Hive, particularly for mobile screens. (IIRC, MobileSafari search field displays 3 characters less, but don’t quote me on that, I don’t have the iPhone next to me, atm).

Only for screen readers or keyboard users I guess. An extra tab / extra anchor to read. Jumping to the user’s default admin page might be a handy shortcut. As it stands, the only time that’s called is on login, which seems a bit of a waste of a setting.

Sorry, I meant the two-click menu system, not the keyboard navigation which is obviously important. I just don’t see having to click the menu twice as an issue whatsoever. The extra link on the logo is a fairly good idea though – if someone can provide code to allow it to link to whatever the default admin page is set to (including a text alt/aria for accessibility).

This sounds like helpful UX – I will think about a good UI solution.

I’ll give this a go, no worries.

EDIT: well, apart from the fact that the place in question is a background image and not a physical ‘thing’. That makes it tricky…

The absence of the hover-to-open effect is a real pleasure

I like it too. I want stability in my navigation. An extra click doesn’t bother me.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 beta released

In this commit I have made the Textpattern logo a clickable link to whatever default admin panel you have set, as requested.

Got one more admin theme tweak to do then I’m happy to release beta2 unless other devs have stuff they need to add. This beta should be a shorter cycle than the last one, making the release soon after that (unless of course a major bug appears beforehand).

Sorry, the search clear suggestion totally slipped through the net earlier – will look at that today.
