Drupal Accessibility, Usability

Monday, March 9, 2009

I had a quick conversation with Duane Degler from Design for Context at DrupalConDC 2009 this past week. It gave me a great idea to try out a usability feature in my next implementation of the Drupal Content Management System, which is to use CSS to make some of the action functions appear as buttons. Links connote taking a user some place, buttons connote action.

At the moment the plan is to use them in the upper left admin navigation screen. Since the few actionable items most of my clients need can be so tough for a new user to find, I create additional links here to ease the pain such as "Edit Content", or "Edit Blocks". These, along with "Create Content" would be great candidates for action buttons.

John did a wonderful job redesigning my website in a way that worked within my budget and created a result that is both impressive to look at and highly functional. He was a pleasure to work with!
