[UI vs UX] Permalink on journals/comments as normal anchor href

DataBank 4 years ago updated by Digby (Community Manager) 3 years ago 1

I do appreciate the presence of a Permalink option when viewing my feed, and it's a decent enough placement from a UI standpoint. However, its presence as a button tag causes issues with my User Experience. (And I'd like to think I'm not alone. Right?)


Usually I just middle-click to open something like that in a new tab for reading later, especially as I'm scrolling through a feed while clicking it. Or I might be looking just to link someone to journal, not really wanting to go to the page. Either way, as a button it forces me to move that tab away from the page I was reading, then remember to hit back instead of close to get to where I'd been.

At this point, links have been changed to act as links, not buttons. This should hopefully improve the experience. If there's another issue that makes the site more difficult to navigate, please let us know.
