To reproduce: 1. Go to the bottom of <http://landfill.tequilarista.org/bbaetz/query.cgi>. 2. Look at the row containing the sort options and search button. What you should see: * | Sort results by: [ bug number :^] ( Search ) | What you actually see: * | Sort results by: [ Bug Number :^] ( Submit query ) | What needs fixing: 1. The row should be aligned on the right side of the page, not the left, to be easier to find and closer to the browser's vertical scrollbar (unless you happen to be using NeXT, in which case I apologize for not putting your needs ahead of everyone else's). 2. `Submit query' should be translated into English, i.e. `Search'. :-)
I agree with 1, but I like submit query over search since this is the query page and you are querying the bugzilla db. To me, search indicates that you are too silly to know where the information is on your own so you have to search around for it, much like searching through your house/ appartment to find something you need. Submit query seems like a nicer way of putting it. I think that most users will understand submit query since it is the only thing that makes logical sense to press to get bug results.
This bug should be a comment on bug 16775, the bug about redesigning query.cgi. Bugs should not be filed on code that is not in the Bugzilla CVS repository.
My mistake, the code in question is indeed in CVS.
> this is the query page No, it's the search page. That's why it has `Search for bugs' at the top. `Submit query' is HTTP-/SQL-weenie-speak, and it should never have leaked into Bugzilla's front end in the first place. Besides which, the first of the two search buttons already says `Search'. > search indicates that you are too silly to know where the information is on > your own I hope Zach doesn't use Google. Or AltaVista. Or Netscape Search. Or Yahoo.
I have a fix for this; patch will appear in bug 110711. Gerv
"Search" makes sense given that we use it everywhere else on the page (including the submit button at the top of the form with the exact same functionality as the one at the bottom). Right-aligning the sort list and search button, on the other hand, is inconsistent with the alignment of all the other elements in the form. It also separates the sort list and search button from the activity radio buttons with which they would otherwise logically be grouped and implies a strong connection between the sort list and search button that does not actually exist. Not only should those elements not be right-aligned, it would make more sense if the "Search" button were on its own line under the sort list.
Fixed in bug 110711. Gerv
