Thanks Bramus.
Can you show me the recbin icons?

Purspose:
I want to create a set of Icons that really "communicates".
Therefor I created the Icons for the difrent view-conditions of the pages in unique colours. In this way it's much faster to recognize the pages view-condition.

Stefek

There are some nice ones, but some of them are rather like the same style crude icons WB uses now. There are lots of free open source icon sets available, so need to create them yourself. Just Google for them or take a look at for example

All right, but I really want to create a set of icons, which isn't collected from a couple of diffrent designers.
So I create them myself. Of course I look for diffrent ideas, but allmost all of the icons I'm creating now are done with vektors.
Thus I can create a lot of combinations.

What I really appreciate is not a new source of allready created icons but some exact suggestions, which of the attached Icons you like, and which you don't.

Thanks,
Stefek

OK,
I changed some of the Icons and I'm attaching the new version as demo image only.

Please give me some more feedback on it.

Best Regards,
Stefek

EDIT/
once I'm done with it, I will attach all the small files too.

Thanks Bramus.
Please let me know, what you think about the other Icons.

I personally didn't like so much the "modify" icon.

What about the others?
Any suggestions?

Hello Bramus,
I attached the modify icon.

In the standard-admin-template we have the first icon.
But because it is not communicating correctly the idea, I am going to recreate it.
Therefor I'm looking for some suggestions, which symbol would communicate the actions correctly.

The tree Icons below are my Ideas.
But I'm not satisfied enough - maybe the colours - for I think that the symbol is communicating properly.

What do You think?

Stefek

After few days of work, your comments in this post and all the suggestions via PM I do upload the next versions of my ICON Set for the Admin Backend.
This time I tried to create the colours closer to the WB colours. (Expect of the pages Icons with all the conditions of visibility).

Please download the icons and give it a try again.

Any further suggestions are welcome.

Best Regards,
Stefek

Hello,

personally I do not like the "icon in a box style" too much.

However, the actions of the new icons become more obvious (e.g. private pages, registered pages etc.). The colors are fine and the icons look more consistent (one source instead of several sources). All in all good job.

Thank you Christian.

Do you mean the icons in the first group (because they are surrounded with a frame)?

Actually they are very good to recognize, while installed.

Or did you mean something else ?

Best,
Stefek

Hello Stefek,

yes I was talking about the icons in the first group which are surounded by a frame what I called: "icons in a box".
But this may be due to the fact that I have used WB no for a while and I am simply used to see the "old" icons  :-)
Nevertheless, great work and as I mentioned before, the actions associated with an icons becomes more obvious.

Regards Christian

Thank you Doc,
this is why I have done them.
I will leave the borders for the first, untill more users give their feedback.
More can be done on this "micro project", but I still need a little more suggestions.

Best Regards,
Stefek

Hi Stefek!
This is a real great job you are doing here! It will be a great step forward for WebsiteBaker, when there are professional icons! And these ARE professional!

At the first glance I feared, the icons could "stick" at each other, but when I downloaded them, I saw there is no problem.
Maybe some sugestions: The "clock" icon seems to me like a smiley. I think its better to have the classic 3:00 clock. (I hate to write in english)
And the sections icon - maybe a (2) dotted line instead of the gap?

Do you also mean the icons in the first goup, right? Yeah, there is no problem at all with it - we "old bakers" only are  to accustomed with the old ones. But once you install the new ones, you don't want to miss them because of their self-explanatory.
(I appologize for my english  :-D)

All right. I will consider your suggestions in the next version.

Thank you, Chio.

I like them a bit more with each new version. I think the next step would be to create a 3D look for the ones that are still flat. Now there are different styles. There should be more consistency to the look and feel of them.

Yes. The styles are still a bit diffrent. Now after your posting I can see that.
I will improve the consistency factor in the next version.

More suggestions are welcome.

Hello Bramus,
There will be an update soon.

In addition, togehter with another german member BerndJM, we are creating a whole Backend Redesign with some comfortable features. For example, you got a character counter in the Description-, Title- & Keywords-Fields.
I added also some Icons for the  page settings which gives more clarity (not only for new users) and speeds up the work with WB (and really makes more fun).

All this is functioning without any DataBase change.
Everyone interested for Beta-Testing let me know (PM).
We (BerndJM & Me) will share the Backend  with the whole community - after it's done and tested.

Best,
Stefek

Stefek, Bernd,

sounds like great news, looking forward to see your design change proposals.

Regards Christian

P.S.: Is a character counter really necessary  :wink:

Of course - everytime welcome.

 :-D But anyway - I´ll give You a try, maybe You change Your mind.

It wasn´t too bad before - but now it looks really displaced.
