Blue box around post buttons

    When did this appear?

    I'm not convinced it looks too good as there is a large space to the right of the Preview button.

    yeah, looks kind of strange, especially when there isn't a box shown anywhere else

    I like it, I just think it needs to be edited to space the buttons to fill the whole box with an equal margin between each button.

    It seems unnecessary to me.

    I prefer the clean look below the quick reply editor.

    I think they've been playing around with it ever since the suggestion to move the "save changes" button before the upload button... which they seem to have done.

    Save changes button?

    Have I missed an upgrade?

    Sorry, I didn't clarify. When editing a post, the "upload" button was the first button after the message editor. I suggested yesterday that they put the "save changes" button first. (http://xenforo.com/community/thread...ctly-below-the-editor-in-edit-post-mode.1249/)

    AFAIK, the blue box that you're referring to wasn't there before they moved the buttons around.

    Internal debates going on about the blue box of doom... it's probably being scrapped tonight.

    I like the idea of the blue box, but its current state of being detached and uncentered is not appealing. Here's what I think would look much better:

    I think I know what you where trying to accomplish with the blue box. If it's not scrapped by the time I get to photoshop I'll throw some mockups up.

    @ nick I keep clicking those damn buttons in that screenshot.

    Well now I'll feel sad that it's going just because of the name. :(

    Thanks, I've only just noticed the "save changes" button.

    I'm sure that wasn't there before :D :confused:

    centered looks silly.

    Not as silly as floating in the middle of nowhere. :p (IMO, at least).

    It's not actually floating in the middle of nowhere, it's just a little misleading on that one form. Look at some of the forms in your account section and it should be more clear how the alignment works.

    I actually like the blue box, just needs even padding

    I tried it with the buttons centered within the blue... it looked gaaah.

    Im not really fond of that box as it doesn't go well with all the other buttons, but since it's going to be scrapped, no worries here.
