[RFE] Emphasize "Login" after registered
Last modified: 2016-04-18 05:37:33 EDT
Description of problem:
The button "Sign Up" is always emphasized. Personally, I keep clicking
on it even I already have registered accounts and login dozens of times.
Please make the "login" is emphasized after I registered.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Zanata version 3.0.0-alpha-2-SNAPSHOT (20130812-0932)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Complete registration.
2. Click the activation link
"Login" is less obvious then "Sign Up".
Login is should be easier to spot than Sign Up, since you can now "Login".
This depends on our goals. Having the signup be slightly more noticeable than the login link is a commonly used pattern that people are used to.
What we should really be doing is automatically signing them in straight after they sign-up or if this is not possible at least taking them straight to the login page rather than making them click another link.
As far as I can see from the facebook, and Google, they put sign up and (In reply to Luke Brooker from comment #1)

Google: Sign up is at the top right, Login is at the middle
Facebook: Sign up is at the middle, Login is at the top right.
Twitter: Sign up is at the right, Login is on upper of sign up.
I should say that both "Sign Up" and "Login" are all in the easy-to-spot places, but different places. Usually, one in the middle, the other one at the top right.

That only works for the first login.
They will still encounter the same problem on the 2nd, 3rd logins.
I keep telling myself "Don't click that 'Sign up' button, you already registered!"
Good point on those. It's always a tricky thing on which one we should lean on more which is why I said it depends on our goals.
I have a bunch of changes I want to make to the login/account screen but for now I will make a few tweaks to the prototype.
Changes have been merged into integration master. Purely to do with visual hierarchy of Sign Up/Log In buttons.
Should probably have a another bug to do with the sign up process, although we can do that as part of one big change.
The login box as the landing page is also a plus.
