Version 3.1.2 review: bugs and requests

Post by Kostelano » 31 Dec 2020, 19:42

Jan and the community, hello! I quickly ran through version 3.1.2, noticed something (mostly trivia) and inform you about it for fixing in the new version.

1. https://ibb.co/fD0fyTg
There are too many columns in my humble opinion. This does not fit into the layout for the English language and looks much worse for the Russian language. If possible, it would be a good idea to remove columns that you think are not vital and are not often used.

2. https://ibb.co/JRYQKKg
It seems to me that the icon is missing here. The field is invisible, it's hard to understand how to upload a file.

3. https://ibb.co/swzqPbv
The off / on button of the editor jumps when toggling. In the screenshot - I just turned off the editor and the button moved to the left.

4. https://ibb.co/KLKkQSW
Sort point error: no ascending / descending.

In my opinion the CANCEL button is misleading. Here we cannot cancel sending a newsletter AFTER it has been actually sent. More appropriate is the CLOSE button (possibly next to the CANCEL button).

Different sizes of the group of buttons.

This language constant has been omitted since version 3.0.7 :).

Code: Select all

COM_PHOCAEMAIL_ERROR_FIELD_SUBJECT_EMPTY="Please, fill the Subject field."

There is no message header "SUCCESS" in the language files. Either you need to add it or use the standard:

Code: Select all

INFO="Info"
MESSAGE="Message"

It might be better to implement these fields similar to other Joomla (native) components, where you simply select the "Default" captcha or the one that is active among the plugins (for example, only RECAPCHA is enabled).

Thanks for your work. The components are very good.

If I find something else or come up with something, I will add it to this topic.

Happy New Year! :)
