I already posted this topic before, I hope the moderators don't get upset, but I thought it would give better input if I added a poll to this suggestion.
As Matt stated on a previous topic, it's not an option to remove the buttons from the design ;)
Like someone else said, at least when someone gets the error they know why they can't post rather than them being stuck not knowing and hunting around for non existant buttons.
People read forum rules?
This is a "READ ONLY" forum.
I think it would it would be cool that buttons show according to the permissions set for each forum. Perhaps even having an auto message at the top of each topic and/or forum showing (instead of even using forum rules) the forum status.
Squeaky clean, no error messages for end users.
I think the best solution is to just have the buttons be grayed out and unclickable IMO. Someone suggested it in the other topic as well to where it shows the normal button if they are not allowed to post and a gray button with the same information on it. I think that gets the point across better because people see grayed out buttons all the time when on their computer.
LOL, that reminds me of the IPB 1.3 skin for 2.3 XD, anyways its not needed most people are used to how IPB works.
As the buttons are images and on the current skin, quite grey anyway, I doubt many users would understand that - it would be different if they were HTML buttons.
Well grayed out is a figure of speech. What I mean is an odd color that is different from the default skin. So for this skin something like a white or a light gray would be a "grayed out" button.
Good idea :D
I don't care if the buttons are removed or just grayed out. But they should do something to show that they will not work.
You are absolutely right in suggesting, let the logic prevail in programming.
