Re: UX issue/conflict with topic subscription icon/menu

... which is kind of true. Problem is that whether you go for „Subscribe“ or „Subscribed“, neither is unambiguous with check mark on/off. Furthermore the other icons do somehow distract from the checkmark purpose (no, I'm not saying that they must go). I also thought about that toggle vs. action thi...

Re: UX issue/conflict with topic subscription icon/menu

the link is not a toggle which is what you are refering to, it is an action to perform which is what the icon and text is describing. If you call those two actions, the checkmark makes even less sense. I mean there’s a reason why you can't find this combination of opposing state/action description ...

Re: UX issue/conflict with topic subscription icon/menu

You're right. But it is like this since the dawn of phpBB... Well, all I can say is that I'm a phpBB newbie admin/board founder, who wondered (and searched for half an hour) why the heck all those subscribed topics didn't receive the promised email notification (despite email notification being ena...

ACP Feature Request: Add site map & quick search on where to find specific settings

I'm a phpBB newbie. Despite making very good progress after three weeks setting up and tweaking my board to my exact requirements, I still have a hard time once in a while finding exactly where to make specific adjustments in the ACP (Admin Control Panel).

Re: UX issue/conflict with topic subscription icon/menu

I've now switched the checkbox with and without mark, as well as tweaked the german text. It feels much more intuitive, natural and consistent now. See here: Not subscribed, thus not checked (German).png Subscribed, thus checked (German).png English: Not subscribed, thus not checked.png Subscribed, ...

UX issue/conflict with topic subscription icon/menu

I see a serious UI/UX conflict/contradiction in the way the checkbox icon is used with regards to subscribing to a topic: Checked, yet not subscribed.png Subscribed, yet not checked.png At first glimpse on seeing the checkmark, the user thinks that he is already subscribed to the topic, while the op...
