Firewall: Aliases: Ports plus icon



  • Hi
    When you select Firewall: Aliases: Ports, URLs or All, a plus icon appears at top right for "Main page for this section". plus icon is not suitable for this. The same problem exists in Firewall: Shaper.

    And what icon would be suitable?  :-\



  • an icon like this:


  • Banned

    Eeeeeew, yuck… how does that even suggest it's supposed to add an an item?



  • What Amirkabir is refering to is the button which brings you back to the mainpage of a subsection.
    eg. if you are on the "Firewall –> Aliases --> URLs" tab, then the + button in the top right corner is a link back to the "Firewall --> Aliases --> IP" tab.

    Not the button to add a new item.

    Actually i never used this button before.
    But i see that this link is useful when you are looking at the status of a subsection.
    It provides a direct link between the diagnostic and its correlating configuration page.

    Arguably another icon would be nice, but i don't think the posted image would fit the current pfSense theme :)

    Oh…

    Ditto, I'm afraid I've never used any of these buttons, and considering you can just as well click the tab, I probably won't ever find a use for it. :D

    Yeah we didn't really have a more suitable icon available at the time I made it, but we could probably have our web guy make one up now. The problem is I can't think of any image that is appropriate for that action either. An up arrow isn't any more specific than the +…

    I put the shortcut bar in to save time/clicks. It's more useful for flipping between status, logs, and the config than from the config to the main config page.
