Description Don Burns 2008-05-19 23:50:17 UTC
I would like the webmaster to change the layout of the "Log in / create account" page. The "Log in" button and the "E-mail new password" button are to close together. And when you get in a hurry, a user accidentally hits the second button. This is not user friendly and most all websites do not put there two items so close together. Please make this page more user friendly. Move the "E-mail new password" to the bottom. If you click to fast, or hit Tab+Tab+Tab to fast, well you get the idea.

FIXED in r39546. In Special:Userlogin the buttons "Log in" and "E-mail new password" now have classes "mw-loginbutton" and "mw-mailmypasswordbutton". This makes it possible to reposition the buttons wherever you like with css.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-08-19 17:25:58 UTC
Reverted in r39649. That change added an element-specific class to an element that already had an ID -- there's no reason to do that.

If there's a general issue with the layout, then we should fix the layout then resolve this bug as FIXED. If the layout looks ok generally but some people want to customize it, they can already accomplish that and we should resolve this bug as INVALID.

It's always looked fine to me, and I've never had the problem of hitting the wrong button. Going ahead and resolving INVALID per comment 2.
