Some final UI tweaks before the release. The latest Beta has many items in the Topic action bar at the bottom, which can be confusing:

Topic WebHome . { Edit | Attach | Rename/move | Ref-By | Printable | Raw text | Diffs | r1.7 | > | r1.6 | > | r1.5 | > | r1.4 | >... }

It is better to move not so frequently used actions out of the way:

Topic WebHome . { Edit | Attach | Ref-By | Printable | Diffs | r1.7 | > | r1.6 | > | r1.5 | >... | More }

The More link leads to a new oops dialog (oopsmore template) that allows you to:

  • Ref-By:
    • Find topics in current web that link to topic.
    • Find topics in all public webs that link to topic.
  • Rename or move:
    • Rename/move topic
  • View previous topic revision:
    • Revision: |___| in |x| raw text format [ View ]
  • Compare revisions:
    • Older revision: |___|
    • Newer revision: |___| [ Compare ]

Change is in TWikiAlphaRelease.

UI question:

  • Is More a good term? Or better to call it Administration, or something else?
  • Rename/move is now hidden in the More dialog because it goes somewhat against the WikiCulture. Is this OK?
  • The | r1.7 | > | r1.6 | > | r1.5 | > | r1.4 | >... | list is convenient and slick but somewhat redundant. Shall we remove that?

To do: (after release)

  • Move %META{"moved"}% from view template to oopsmore template.

I think this is sensible; thoughts:

  • RefBy is in both places, I'd go for just in more
  • Same for >...
  • I think more is fine as a name.
  • I'd move over the rx.y entries, but keep diff to last revision on the main view page.

For view script:

  • Kept Ref-By link since it promotes navigation. Note: It searches now only current web, not all webs.
  • Kept | r1.7 | > | r1.6 | > | r1.5 | links since people frequently visit one or two versions back.
  • Removed >... link since redundant with More link.
  • E.g.: Topic WebHome . { Edit | Attach | Ref-By | Printable | Diffs | r1.7 | > | r1.6 | > | r1.5 | More }

For rdiff script:

  • Added View link to jump back to top revision. (Is redundant with highest r1.x but does need less mental work)
  • Replaced >... link with More link.
  • E.g.: Topic WebHome . { View | Diffs | r1.7 | > | r1.6 | > | r1.5 | More }

Commited to TWikiAlphaRelease.

I would move all but the latest r1.7 type link to 'More', as they are very rarely used. It would be good to rename the '>' link on main page (now the only one) to be descriptive, e.g. 'Last Changes' or 'Changes in r1.7' perhaps.

Also, why do we need the WebHome . { ... } stuff surrounding these options? It should be clear that the actions apply to the current page.

-- RichardDonkin - 10 Sep 2001

I can see from the log that people at work use the diff feature quiet frequently, so I will leave the diff links in for this release. Good point about making the > link more descriptive, however this will blow up the line.

The Topic WebHome . { ... } is here to make it more obvious that these are actions on the current topic. May be it is obvious enough without stating this?

(BTW, this is the first test after the TWiki upgrade to the latest Beta)

-- PeterThoeny - 08 Sep 2001

Fair enough - I suspect the reason people use Diffs a lot is that it is easy to understand, whereas few people understand the meaning of '>'. BTW, your signature has the wrong date, though that's probably not a bug!

-- RichardDonkin - 11 Sep 2001

IŽd suggest moving the more to before the revisions as to me it looked like "more" just meant more revisions.
