Description (last modified by ocean90)

I've noticed a couple of small things we can do to improve the UI/UX of the new revisions screen:

A couple things to consider:

  • Add a short description (intro sentence) explaining what to do once you land on the page.
  • Disable previous and next buttons when you're on the first, and last node. [24020]
  • Fix some padding/margin inconsistencies (i.e. unnecessarily large padding on right side of screen)
  • Slider handle (blue down arrow) icon looks a tad rasterized (especially on retina device)
  • Seems like the "Restore this revision" button should be in the proximity of the right side instead of in the middle (as the right side is the visual representation of what will actually be restored).
  • When in "Compare two revisions" mode, the blue highlighted section within the slider, covers all of the revision nodes. We might look at decreasing the height of that blue highlighted area. [24020]

23899.diff tries to be smart about disabling the next and previous buttons based on where you're at on the slider.

23899.2.patch refreshes lessbloat's patch and changes the z-index of the slider range to let the revision nodes visible.

i wanted to point out that i believe you are making a common mistake here:

the right hand column represents what was added in the revision, the left hand column represents what was removed. the restore revision button is near the To: revision because thats whats always restored when you click the button.

its an easy confusion to make and i had proposed a single column mode that was long ago disabled, maybe we can reconsider?

here is an old screenshot:

In 24020:

Revisions UI: Disable previous and next buttons when you're on the first, and last node. Put revision ticks above the slider range. props lessbloat for initial patch. see #23899.

Should we add a help tab?
