Post/Preview buttons March 23, 2012 11:27 AM   Subscribe

The new css Post/Preview buttons buttons added last year don't have any :active styling.

Or rather they do but changing the color from #333 to #333 has no visible effect!
I'm thinking something subtle like
.button:active {color:#666;}
I don't really mind what the formatting is but I think some feedback that the button has been pressed would be useful, particularly for folks using a dodgy trackpad and/or a slow internet connection.

My narwhal gets a 'Oh no you dih'ent' look on its face when I post a comment, so I have no clue what you're talking about, yo.

Sure, we can make it a different color in the plain theme. The change to #333 works fine in the default theme because the buttons are yellow. Going a lighter shade would probably work in the plain theme.

Oh, you mean the text color? Yeah, that's not changing at all when you press the button. I suppose we could do something with that. The background color already changes when you press the button. Is that not enough of a change?

Ah OK I see it now, for some reason the grey wasnt registering (I'm not actually on a slow connection right now) I guess you can close this up.

Thanks

Dear mods,

Metatalk is oftentimes a forum for letters from the same type of people who used to come to my first job (italian restaurant), and tell me I need to put samosas on the menu. That being the case, can we get some samosas up in here? I like to eat them with hummus. Oh yeah, get hummus too.

Also, I would like some Samoas. Though many people agree Thin Mints are the best.

ok, no problem, simple misunderstanding. I think we're all set here.
