    I’ve just posted a potential CSS roadmap for core over on Make/Core. For those of you who don’t follow along there, I’d love your eyes and thoughts.

    Made a ticket for something that has been on our radar since 2.7 was in development, but just never got any kind of prioritization because it was minor compared to more serious UI things. That said, since it’s kind of minor, would be a nice thing to whip out.

    Ticket #17028 – Move the “last edited at” text and saved/updated/published notices in post/page editor
    1. The timestamp of the last save is currently displayed at the bottom right of the editor box. It would make more sense for this information to be tied to the Publish box instead.
    2. The yellow alert boxes that appear at the top of the page are weird. a) They should appear closer to the button that caused the action (general usability/accessibility best practice), so probably by the Publish box. b) Once you edit anything on the screen, the “post updated” (or saved, etc) text should go away, because it is no longer current.
    Am thinking we could combine these two things into one flexible status message that’s located in or adjacent to the Publish box.

      Great idea to move the notices and make them disappear. Also it would be great if is technically possible to remove the ‘&message=1’ string.

      I would love to start contributing on the UI group with minor tasks 🙂

      Pretty simple comp that adds “Draft saved” and “Last edited” information to the Publish box and moves alerts above the Publish box and into the right column.

      Did Ben Dunkle also design the calendar icon for “Publish”? Would it be worth looking into making icons for all the publish info for better visual cues?

      If a comp for this gets approved I’d be interested in working on implementing it.

      As for moving the yellow notice boxes, I agree on the point that they should be close to the button that performed the action. However, it would also make that notice bar appear differently on different pages, making it inconsistent. Is this something where general UX might trump consistency?

        I think so. IMO, consistency is important because it contributes to UX by giving users a good expectation of behavior. If that behavior is expected, but still unclear, then its not really contributing to UX anyway. Consistency should contribute to UX, not hinder it.
