#200 reopened enhancement

"Download WordPress" button in header feels like a submit button for the search bar

Reported by: melchoyce Owned by: obenland
Milestone: Priority: low
Component: General Keywords: ui-feedback needs-ui

Description

Suggestion: flip the button and the search bar: https://cloudup.com/c6flqSj1y51

This would stop users from accidentally hitting "download" when they mean to search, and provides better hierarchy overall within the header.

@couturefreak still interested in working on this? I know you started working on it — do you have anything you could share? Thanks!

I am definitely interested, @melchoyce.
Was waiting on a ping from @nacin re: meta environment containing the files necessary to edit. I can pull the latest and 'vagrant up' to see if I have enough to try again though!

@hugobaeta had some ideas for how to improve the header, but I don't think we're ready for them yet. The button is looking pretty... tired anyway, especially compared to the shiny buttons in WP-Admin.

  • Summary changed from Download button in header feels like a submit button for the search bar to "Download WordPress" button in header feels like a submit button for the search bar

Now that we have the new homepage up, it makes more sense to move the button to the header/jumbotron.

How about we get some ideas for what this could be? With the new design does anyone have some suggestions?

I designed a download button.
This is very simple so as not to destroy the current design.
Please give me feedback.

Here is a suggestion: Using the download dashicon....

#22 follow-up: @obenland

With the ongoing work in #3673 we should probably avoid changing the function of the button. What do you think about renaming it to "Get WordPress", and avoid the whole download confusion all together?

The confusion was about the download button looking like a submit button for the search bar, I don't see how changing "Download WordPress" to "Get WordPress" resolves that.

I'm fine with closing the ticket as wontfix or maybelater, I just don't think [7530] was the right fix for this.
