  • GUI is not intuitive enough.

    confusing -- I should say is a better word :’(

    1.) new module (button) -- gives me the impression that I can "install" a new module. doh, clicking gives me a chance to build one ... to advanced for me at the moment.

    2.) icon -- like I "don’T" read the manual so how in the blazes would I know what to do next. yeah, yeah, it’s in the small print next to the cute icon of the cd and the box. errr, like I said I don’t read the manual. I just want point and click simplicity.

    3.) search -- errr ... I thought it would connect me to the mothership of module availability -- I got "1" -- yes one module installed. looks I don’t need to search too far to find what I’m looking for.

    4.) configuration (password) -- are we hackable safe? I hope so cuz if somebody got into the manager they just got my password for SMF !

    5.) explanation which takes up space : "Here you can add/edit Modules. A Module is a collection of resources (e.g. plugins, snippets, etc)." errr -- I already see "Create/ edit Module" I guess I need some more help wink

    Ok, sorry to be rough but I’m thinking big time here grin

    • Thanks Carsten,

      What suggestions do you have for the interface and can you assist in creating something for us to work with?

        Thanks for taking this the right way !!!

        Creation is not my strong point (or forte so to say) I’m more of layout/white space type of guy ... I love fiddling with moving things around and such. I’m going at complaining, whinning, and bitchin’ though grin

              Good usability stuff Carsten, and not a tangent at all!

              I really want to focus on the manager interface for TP4 and a preliminary resource installer built-in to the manager.

              That and to start really growing the support site, solidifying the team structure, and planning for HUGE things. laugh
