Dashboard Log widget icon question
When viewing the log entries in the widget on the dashboard, the "Act" column shows an "X" icon.
I assumed that meant I could click on it to remove the entry. But it does nothing (even though I get a different cursor when I hover over it).
When I hover over it, I see info about the rule that triggered the action. Since I thought it was a removal icon, I thought it was odd to see the hover over help text.
Should the entry remove when clicking, or is the finger cursor incorrect?
I'll check into this

The X is what it shows for traffic that was blocked (that's the action column for the log entry). Hovering shows the rule #. It used to require clicking the X to get a pop up that showed what rule caused the action, now just shows it on hover. It's correct as is. Log entries cannot be deleted.
That makes sense. I was just confused by the cursor change then, perhaps.
I'd say my suggestion would be to maybe have a note icon for the help text, with the crossed-circle indicating that something was blocked (prohibition sign: ).
At the very least, an "X" for blocked but without the cursor changing as though it is clickable (since that doesn't appear to be required anymore).
The cursor changes because clicking that icon causes a pop-up to appear with more details of the log entry.
This code was broken, but I just fixed it. I'll push the update in a few minutes.
Also note that the icon changes depending on whether the log entry came from a block, reject or match. No dobt we will review the choice of icons before beta.
Thanks Steve, sounds good.
And thanks for all the fast updates.
