Delete button (new style suggestion)

I think the delete button which is added to each activity should be less prominent.

I've attached a suggestion which fits the new default theme well:

  • hover-on-activity.jpg: When your mouse hovers over the current activity "area".
  • hover-on-button.jpg: When your mouse hovers over the delete button.

That means 1 less button per activity update = simplified/better overview.

Alternative this could probably just be styled in your own theme.

How would you handle touch-driven, or non-mouse interfaces? There's no other screen on which to delete these items from.

Hmm yeah, you would probably need to detect and handle those touch devices with a different UI/CSS. So when the browser detects an iphone, ipad ect., the delete functionality could be a swipe or just a static delete-button or (X).
Anyways, this was just an idea for styling the delete button. Since we would need to adjust the UI/CSS of this delete function based on the clients device, this might just be too much to deal with now. :-)

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 1.4
  • Severity set to normal
  • Version 1.3 deleted

We've gone back and forth on this one internally for a while now. I think it should stay a button as is for 1.3, with the intent of reevaluating later?

Moving to 1.4. Feel free to shift around if you like.

I wanted to add that with media queries we could easily make it show up for mobile/touch devices. But to be honest, BP and mobile are a harsh mix at the moment.

I would tentatively say this is to be done in theme now with theme compatibility so perhaps not a valid ticket anymore?

bp-legacy still provides the markup and styling for the deletion of BP content, and specifically, activity stream Delete buttons. So I think it's still a relevant issue. The question of whether we *want* to change the interface is a different one. I really would like to throw this over to karmatosed and hnla and the templatepack team for consideration.

  • Milestone Future Release deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Currently, different BP themes handle the delete button in a variety of ways: from the above-mentioned button style, to a dropdown with other links, or styled like a regular link, etc. Let the theme developers decide this :)
