Support forum: Make action links always visible

Reported by: tobifjellner's profile tobifjellner Owned by: dd32's profile dd32
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


Currently, the action links on topics and replies are shown to moderators only when the mouse is hovering over the topic or reply in question.
This is dangerous on mobile/tablet, where the "hover" state only happens when you accidentally click.

Easy solution is to make the action links (see image I'll upload here) visible always (for users with corresponding capabilities).

@tobifjellner would it make sense to only do this for touch devices?

I think wp-admin might use that approach?

Sure, @dd32 if there's a good way to tell them apart. And, for sure, no need to show those links in a print view :D

Support Forums: Always show topic actions when available.

The actions that can be performed on a topic (such as closing, sticking, etc.) are mostly in the context of a single topic or reply, requiring a hover action to display them.

This change makes them more discoverable to those who can use actions by having them be always visible, while at the same time improves the user experience on mid-range touch-focused devices, such as tablets or more modern mobile devices, without any easy hover-states.

This also improves discoverability of actions plugin and theme-related users may have within a topic.

Props vladytimy.
Fixes #6024. See #5516.
