#1453 new defect

Better error message when non-logged in users view the newticket page

Reported by: johnbillion Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: Trac Keywords: ui-feedback


When linking a user to https://core.trac.wordpress.org/newticket, they see a nasty error message if they're not logged in. Can we make this error a bit more user-friendly?

@samuelsidler what kind of flexibility is there in updating the error? I'm guessing we mostly have control over the wording of the error, and not the overall layout. The first thought I had was to clean it up by removing the red error part, and rewording the H1 error message. Thoughts?

The message is different now so this ticket is required?

Replying to Mte90:

The form is there if you're already logged in.

If you're not logged in yet, there's still the same error message, exactly as reported.

I like the suggestion from @JoshuaWold. Just the Font-size from the close button should be a bit larger, cause its pretty small and hard to read. Also do change the design of the button, could be useful, cause the color contrast of the border ist not really high.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
