Description

Fedora DB search form: "Search Fedora Database" button is positioned on the left side in the second line.

Fedora Solr seach form: "Search using SOLR" on the first fine positioned in between two search fields.

Functions for Named Fedora Objects: All action buttons are positioned on the left side.

I suggest moving the search buttons to a separate line and position on the left side.

Also making it a different color would make it easier for us to find them.

I like to see these two buttons under the search fields (not above).

Fedora DB search form: "Search Fedora Database" button is positioned on the left side in the second line.

Fedora Solr seach form: "Search using SOLR" on the first fine positioned in between two search fields.

A user would normally select something from the drop down list and go down to click on search. Too much mouse/hand movement to go down and up.

OK. I moved them under.

Thank you! Looks better!!

Browser issue: IE and Firefox display the action buttons in light gray but Chrome does not display the color. Can you make these action buttons a bit darker?

On Mac at least, I don't see much difference in the displays of Firefox and Chrome or Safari for that matter. I notice that mobile Safari and mobile Chrome give them something of a pink cast. I used to use custom buttons back in the '90's but found that it was often not worth the trouble of keeping them up to speed, and began always allowing browser default buttons to follow whatever fashion they liked...

OK. I made all the action buttons a defined gray (cccccc) which should help distinguish them from selects, etc.

The action buttons are more prominent now. Chrome still displays a lighter shade of gray but it is OK.

Closing.
