Test case:

  • - using button tag
  • - using input type submit tag

  • Restore - using a tag
  • - using input type submit tag

Using class="twikiButton" on input type submit tag produces a too small font in FF on Mac, and a slightly too big font on the a tag.

On the other hand, using class="twikiButton" on the a tag produces a way too big font on iOS Safari.

Fix tested on:

  • FF 26.0 on Mac
  • Safari 6.1.1 on Mac
  • Google Chrome on Mac 34.0
  • FF 25.0 on Win XP
  • IE 8.0 on Win XP

This is now in SVN trunk & 6.0 branch. Package released as well.

I don't see the button change on Windows 7. Screen capture below has Firefox on top, IE11 on bottom. F12 tools show the style is being applied. I played with F12 editing on Firefox - it takes something like 105% to get the I and the icon proportions to look about right.

With respect to packaging, see my comments in EcoPluginDev - while I'm OK with distributing a patch for PatternSkin with the plugin, this skin-specific, temporary patch should not be hard-coded in the plugin.


By the way, the ATTACH took several minutes to effect - for a 20KB image. Might want to check the server logs to figure out why.

For comparison, this is the look of an unpatched PatternSkin and unpatched EcoTrashPlugin on Chrome:

Similar with FF.

I am aware of the delay with attachments. Could not diagnose the cause. It happens sporadically, just now it happened again to me too.
