button labels

This is how my skin for Firefox looks. Can suppress labels or use them in a config at some future.

well I could just put existing images on ovals or rounds that are more liken to the ones above in this post . .....as a possiblity. However would like to begin working on the buttons when a more deciseive direction for the whole top area has ben arrived at.

Winnie says
I like this size It works for me

Mark de LA says
a dot buttons faq could explain the button functions. The only useful one is the label below the add item which tells you where the item is going, but the /add screen should tell you that as well.

Mark de LA says
the faq guy might lose his oomph, but the ? could be uniquely stylized

Mark de LA says
could do questionmark where the one of your stylized logo arrows is the dot

Seth says
sorry, im not gettin the urge to remove the text under the buttons

Seth says
that info is worth its weight in pixels

Winnie says
I can come up with another faq guy morf in time no problems

Seth says
but i like the button shading in the firefox skin above

Winnie says
possible of course "could do questionmark where the one of your stylized logo arrows is the dot"

Winnie says
sure we can evolve the buttons to this type

Winnie says
mostly the graphics situation is resolve and knowing what all' would want

Seth says
but if Winnie is considering major redos .. she might consider going oval to get more space for the symbols ... maybe even a large oval fastblogit home as mark suggested ... we have lots of horizontal space ... even if we add more buttons, there is still lots of horizontal space ... just not much vertical space

Winnie says
its not so much of what can I create as having a specific direction .....as to what type, size and specific images or characters?

Winnie says
the ones i made here we are not locked into . I had no specific guidelines period.

well Seth not on my computer screen ...cant get it all in now

Seth says
... yeah as mark knows, i specialize in no specific guidlines ... i claim it ellicitis max creativity ... but am aware it is frustrating. thing is, it is so much easire to know how the direction to change something when one has something there to change. the programming is the same way ... one is always scraping parts of the program and rewriting them when the desired behavior is not achieved.

Seth says
well Seth not on my computer screen ...cant get it all in now yeah am working on that now ... someting went haywire ... not exactly sure what it is yet

Mark de LA says
As below IMHO the buttons are fine (if the buttons shrink a lot then the faq one may need to be a simple questionmark) . Evolution of buttons for the first release should probably stop & give way to feeds & remaining ideosyncracies.

Winnie says
we can even do buttons that are styleized

Seth says
styleized ?

Mark de LA says
My humble suggestion would be to look thru the Mozilla & firefox skins as ideas & maybe provide Winnie with a few that would be good at smaller size. Essentially these are the standard browser buttons except for the input & possibly login.

Winnie says
The buttons you have now are simple kinda homey and directly pictoral......rather than tech looking. The buttons above are a combination of tech and homey.

Mark de LA says
I still like them & would be OK with stopping evolution with the caveats already spoken.

Seth says
Winnie, dont forget to send me some suggested color gradients that go well with the buttons. I find it a problem that i dont know instantly the kind of room i am inside. Having a color, me thinks will help that.

Winnie says
when posting that comment about styleized buttons I got an error message which may have caused it repeat..........." Fatal error: Cannot redeclare brackets() (previously declared in /home/webadmin/fastblogit.com/html/update/index.html:94) in /home/webadmin/fastblogit.com/html/update/index.html on line 94

Winnie says
was copying previous remark in comments for reference

Seth says
yeah, that is a known bug

Winnie says
k
