Move 'Leave Group' button and use less eye catching

Reported by: shevek Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.3
Component: BW Group Keywords:


The 'Leave Group' button is a rather big fancy button that attracts a lot of users to click it when they want to start a new topic.

Therefore the button should be less fancy and moved to a different location.

there is a </ br> which is not needed and empty <p></p> above the members headline. Could be removed...

I have the feeling its not the right place for the leave button. Maybe we move him to the group member settings? Would mean one more click for the user but would clean up the groupstartpage.

  • the join button is kind of full with now. Is this wanted? Text should be centred in this case.
  • alternative: let's remove this button with the .button2 css in index.css which is without graphics (page load)
  • Would move .button2 css into the minimal.css to be site wide available

Fixed the width of the button. The spurious <br /> is already there on www, removed it nevertheless.

Moving the leave button to the member settings page might make more sense but that tab would need a redesign afterwards. That could go into a different ticket?

I don't see a <p></p> which group did you check?

The 'Leave Group' button [...] attracts a lot of users to click it when they want to start a new topic.

Right now it can end up immediately next to exactly that 'new topic' button. I would suggest to move the latter to the left or the center of the column.

I agree with Tsjoek: To avoid wrong clicks onto the "leave this group" button, the "new topic" button should be moved to the center or left side of the "Recent Forum Posts" column.

Generally, I think it's good to have the button right on the group start page. I would add it to the "member settings" page also but not exclusively so. I believe most members don't even know that page exists. In my opinion, leaving a group should be easy.

I would say it's not a good idea to move the topic button. All views (forum, group/forums etc.) show "new topic" button right. That is the way a user is used, too. Let's do not confuse users.

Therefore it's the leave button which should be moved. Is it really necessary to move the button elsewhere? Who thinks clicking a leave button would create a new topic? ;-)

Anyway it's really really minor. Lets close this one....?
