Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 211453
Clicking square to expand child channels is not obvious
Last modified: 2007-10-23 22:46:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Since RHN410, the channels page has shown only base channels when the page is
initially loaded. To see child channels, a user must click on a square to the
left of the base channel name.
I've just received an email from a customer asking how to access the child
channels. Thinking back, I realised that *every* person who I have ever
introduced to this UI, myself included, has failed to appreciate that clicking
the square expands child channels. This would be about 10 people.
The problem is that the square just looks like a bullet point. Something which
can be expanded would be something more obvious, like a +.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% so far.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find RHN newbie
2. Point them to channels page when they're looking for a child channel
Confused email to RH consultant.
Email free instant gratification.
Marking as a dupe of the existing bug.
Matthew, I apologize for this; the fix had been aligned to the rhn420 (now
renamed to rhn500) release and I was going to try to sneak a fix in early into
rhn415, but other tasks took priority.
In the meantime, do point customers to the 'expand all' 'hide all' links in the
upper right corner of the list. Also, here is how I plan to fix the issue:
Let me know if you see any issues with the proposed change. Thanks!
