What is your experience with express checkout buttons?

Hi all,
We started a company for crypto currency processing (bitcoin, ether, dash etc.) for online shops and are looking into the topic of express checkout buttons. We would like to know more about the current burning pains for online shops and payments. Are you frustrated about the fees? Problems with chargebacks and fraud? How is your conversation rate at the checkout? What is your experience with checkout buttons so far?

Your feedback would be great!


Activate and Deactivate buttons in SharePoint Online solution gallery are disabled

I have created a site template based on Team Site (Classic), made some changes and took the site template.

I have another SharePoint Online tenancy and I am trying to use my custom site template, but in this tenancy “Activate” and “Deactivate” buttons in the solution gallery is disabled in the site collection. I can upload the site template to solution gallery but since I cannot activate, I can no longer use this site template to create new site. Please note that publishing feature is activated in the site collection.

I could not find which configuration needs to be changed to enable using my custom site template in my SharePoint Online site collection. Any help could be appreciated.


What is the significance of the three dots “…” on menus and buttons and how to use them right?

Adding three dots after the title of items in a dropdown menu seems to be a common practice (as you can see on the picture of a drop down menu in Google Chrome). They generaly mean that there is “something” after clicking on it.

These dots are also sometimes presents in the text of action links and buttons.

I am wondering about their utility and relevancy…

In your opinion :

  • What kind of information should be conveyed by these dots ?
  • How and when to use them ?
  • Is it realy relevant to the user, and easily understood by them ?

Having two primary buttons

We are currently working on some email notifications. The email will notify you of something happening that requires your action. For example you are alerted that someone left a door opened when he left. You receive an email that will contain two buttons :

Close as unjustified or View alert. If the title of the notification sounds familiar to you, you select close as unjustified. If you want to view more about the alert you click View alert.

How should one color this buttons ? I cannot figure if they are both primary, or if one would be secondary or not as both of them are a bit of none.

Do pull down buttons confuse users about the actions they perform?

Pull down buttons (if that’s their official name) are starting to pop up here and there. For example, if you look at Eclipse it seems that almost everything is a pull down button. Personally I find them misguiding, since the action they perform is sometimes context sensitive, sometimes it just executes the first action on the pull down list, etc.

When is it okay to use a pull down button? Personally I’m having a hard time justifying their existence.

Edit & save buttons – do I need them? where to place them?

I’m designing a simple app for the Android platform.

I have a page with some data, this page can be reached by two options:

  1. create new page- input fields are empty
  2. edit existing page- input fields are field with data

An explanatory picture could be found here: screenshot

I have two questions:

  1. where to place the edit button or maybe not use an edit button and just enable editing after user presses the field.
  2. where to place the Save button.

Placement of anchor link buttons in a page with a lot of scrollable content

I am building a profile page (http://giga.brandvertisor.com) containing a lot of of information, visually organized in horizontal sections. For the sake of easier navigation, I have put anchor link buttons in the top part of the page:

enter image description here

The problem with this approach is the white space on the right of the buttons. It does not look aesthetically well.

For that reason I’m considering other approaches, but none satisfies me so far:

a) putting the very top introductory information on place of the blank space:

enter image description here

I do not like this approach, because the links section looks like a vertical tabs section, displaying information on the right, which is misleading.

b) displaying content in tabs, instead of having it all on the page, with those anchor link buttons

Tabs do not be display the whole information at once, making scanning and skimming difficult. Scanning and skimming are important when it comes to profile pages and especially when you have an advanced user who is comparing data between two or more profiles.

c) placing the anchor links section in the middle, instead of left:

enter image description here

Still a lot of blank space remains on both sides of the buttons section.

d) placing the anchor link buttons horizontally:

enter image description here

Horizontal layout of the buttons would be harder to skim than the vertical one.

e) placing the buttons on the left and outside the main page body:

enter image description here

Initially I thought that this approach would solve my problem, but it has two shortcomings: a) the batters must have really short text inside all that take up too much margin space and b) this would be somewhat hard to implement on mobile devices.

One could argue here, that I could have small buttons on the left, web text displaying on hover, just as this has been implemented in a lot of websites. I am selling this approach, because it does not give you the button text immediately and the for a first-time user, it would be confusing this way.

f) displaying all sections in accordion:

enter image description here

This is a somewhat better approach than tabs (b) one, in terms of the fact that you will see what you have just clicked, instead of having to move your gaze and mouse back to a fixed placement of the tab buttons.

Of all the possibilities outlined here, I would accept this one as a compromise, but I want to make sure that I have not missed a better solution.

What would you suggest?

How to display a date filter consisting of custom date selector and buttons

I am building an iOS application which contains a list of videos, these videos can be filtered by date. I am looking for a better way to display these filters on Mobile, with such a limited screen space.

The User can select a custom start date and a custom end date via dropdown menus. Alternatively they can click a button for quick selection, 30 days ago, 1 year ago and three others.

Here’s how my app looks now:

Ace editor searchbox prev/next buttons height shrank?

When I click ctrl + F in the editor, it shows on the top right corner a searchbox, however, the height of the prev/next buttons seems to be shrunk. I wonder if I have missed anything. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
