New Design Customizations: Introducing 16 Button Options

Today we’re excited to announce the addition of not 5, not 10, but 16 new button options for your IntenseDebate comment system. This project has been a long in the making, and these new styles are now available in your Layout Settings page at http://intensedebate.com/edit-site-layout. There are 4 main button styles (apart from the normal text links): Default, Candy, Glass, and Square. Each style features some color and size variations, so you should be able to find something that fits nicely with your site’s theme.

Without further ado, we present the latest from our design labs:

Default

This is our beloved default button that’s in use across all IntenseDebate comment sections. We’ve introduced a twist with some new size variation: you can choose to only show large buttons.

Candy

Candy is the coolest of the cool when it comes to our new buttons. With 12 different color variations (in common colors ) there’s something for everyone. Our personal favorites include White, Light Blue (which is actually IntenseDebate-blue), Orange, and Green. You’ll actually find a similar button design around IntenseDebate.com – that’s how much we like them!

Glass

Glass is the classy choice. Available in White and Black, it’s a slick alternative to our flashy new Candy buttons. Glass buttons are designed to resemble clear or smoked glass.

Square

For those of you that might want something a bit more square, we now offer a variation to the Default buttons which features small rounded corners. It’s perfect if you don’t want your button too big, or don’t want it to stand out too much.

Head on over to your Blog Layout page to check out the new buttons and activate them.

  4. Reply button is a bit too big. Can we use custom css for button colour and size?

    Comment by Simon Bennett — February 18, 2010 @ 7:02 pm
  5. Of course, you can write custom CSS to exchange the button's background image and size, but we don't provide any additional graphics for buttons at the moment.

  13. Hi guys, I was wondering, is there a site where I can see all the "Intense Debates"? Where are the most interesting discussions? Who are the best debaters? Is there a place to do that? Are you thinking in implementing something like that?

    Comment by Lobo7922 — February 21, 2010 @ 6:23 am
  14. Sorry for the delay. We don't currently have a directory or list of the best debaters. It's a cool idea though and something we'll keep in mind moving forward. Thanks for letting us know that you're interested!

  17. Looking good. The Blue Candy button fits on my blog perfectly.

    Comment by Jeff M — February 23, 2010 @ 12:45 am
  18. Pleasant, thanks a lot🙂

    If I may make a suggestion, i'd really strongly recommend you apply the same talent to the emoticons we may insert in our comments.

    Compared to standard wordpress emoticons, yours are still too small and grayish, that said without intention to hurt you…

  26. That's a great new feature. Sadly that I'm using custom CSS.

    BTW, is there any way to edit the language strings? My language (bulgarian) has partial support and some words are not translated correctly.

  27. Are you encountering an issue with our buttons and your CSS? We're happy to help. Can you please send me details at support@intensedebate.com?

    We're aware of a bug with our translation that's causing the "Comments" string to be in English. We're working to correct this and should have it completed soon. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for your patience.

  29. […] Твърдо “за” IntenseDebate март 4, 2010 wordpress 0 IntenseDebate надделя и сега набира сила, поне що се отнася до WordPress. Не е странно при все че отдавна вече фирмата е част от Automattic. Хубавото е, че вече няма някои от проблемите, които преди бяха основна пречка. Има вече нови стилове на бутоните, което открих по случайност, а днес видях, че и в блога на IntenseDebate са го отбелязали. […]

  30. good staff, thanks a lot
