most of the content hast been moved to buttons and icons
as I explained during the presentation of the wireframes, one thing that the site needs is more visual buttons and in-site navigation. This can happen in two ways and I guess a mix is best:
- creating graphic buttons using images (like currently the publish button)
- having a button layout defined in the stylesheet
while creating graphic buttons using images is more stylish and all that, it would mean having an image file per button, and we should keep the number of image files down and only use this for the most important ones, while defining a generic button look in the stylesheet for most buttons, that makes them graphically stand out more than the current look (just like any old link). I went through the site and wireframes, collecting all that I could find. Please add and amend. I’m including a short description, however feel free to edit this wiki, this is a first draft and will likely need more work and thinking.
clarification: I do not mean to create individual styles for all the buttons marked with stylesheet, but to have one generic one, that is applied to all of them and makes them clearly distinguishable as part of the navigational structure rather than part of the content.
note: we have been talking about changing the icons to go with the new style (see this discussion), so the buttons should not be modeled on the current icons.
