Cancel button shown as link



  • When you edit a wiki article and click on preview. The submit and preview buttons are displayed properly. But the Cancel button is displayed as a hyperlink. Would be better if shown as a button like submit and preview.

  • Yes, the only difference is that in this case Cancel link is shown, but its not a button.

    I agree we should always search before creating new thread.

    Yes I am favor of clear/cancel button as it is more visible than a link. I wanted to create a voting sort of thing for this but I really dont know how to create that or Do I have any privilege to do that, If you or any one else has that privilege please create a voting for this thats the way we/admin will have clear view should they add this or not. In my tread I got mixed reaction from others so cant say if every body agrees.



  • I don't think there is any need for voting. As it seems to be a point which has been missed out. Anyways, even I don't have the right to create a poll. So if required some forum administrator might do it.



  • The Cancel link is like that by design, to give visual priority to the two other buttons.

    Unfortunately, the pure link has a lower priority than the buttons, in my optical reception.



  • May be using some different color would be good. But as a link it does not grab one's attention quickly.



  • I found this thread just because I have already experienced this problem.

    I saved two times the same wiki page because I was only seeing the code but the "cancel" button there wasn't. Then I though that the cancel button was as is by design choice. Following the most common perceptive habits people expects in every form, confirmation box, standard input and edit area at least two identical buttons: Save and Cancel.

    It seems a design bug :)
