So we've gotten lots of great feedback on the homepage, it's been really helpful and we're talking to folks about redoing the icons, making sure that the big icons are the right choice and much more. Wait for a post to find out more about the future of the homepage!
But we're also working on the log in process, attempting to make that easier as well!
Here is a view of the current log in form as it exists on the head.
One of the problems with this UI is that you can't reset your password very easily from this page, or any other page really. The nice part is, you can log in from any page, and not have to go through some intermediate page.
So here is the solution we've though of to make it easier to reset your password or log in from any page in Bugzilla.
How it appears if you've never come to the page
What happens when you click on log in, cursor focused on the log in. This is also what happens if the browser auto fills in your username and password.
This is what you'll see if you click on the forgot password link.
I omitted a close icon for now because it didn't seem necessary, but maybe you guys think it is. Let me know!
We're also adding a link to the reset password on the bad username/password error page.
This isn't something that will magically make Bugzilla super easier to use, but hopefully this will take us one step closer to a more usable Bugzilla.
As always feedback is really appreciated and unlike my previous post, I'll get emailed when you guys comments, so hopefully i can respond to your feedback in a more timely manner. Can't wait to hear your opinions.
