I’m sure lots of people have a similar situation.
We have a “Requests” category, where users can request resources from the community, which includes a template response to help them make clear and useful requests.
In user testing we’ve found users a bit confused by this category, and one of the solutions suggested was to change New Topic > New Request, to help users understand the action.
Is this possible?
The only posts in Meta I could find were about changing New Topic (js.topic.create) globally, rather than for a specific category…
Here is a way how you can achieve it for now but I am thinking to create an easily changeable theme component with some settings from this. We’ll see
@carbonrich - here is some simple CSS code fun for you if you want to try. you will need to change the CATEGORY_PLUG to the appropriate category plug for the one you want the button to be used in.
content: "New Request";
Thanks @dodesz, not sure how I missed this, a theme component would be great, happy to contribute a bit financially to that happening if it helps.
Also thanks @Lillinator this is definitely something that would work technically, but I don’t think it’s a11y / WCAG compliant, see for example:
My knowledge on that might be a little outdated though, so happy to be corrected.
