My partners and I will look into this.  I know we can use tables to define the button borders instead of graphics which will still look pretty good.  We could also us button styles to accomplish this.  Either of these solutions with fix the language compatibility issue.


I think it would be great if there was a way to specify whether you wanted to use language specific graphics for buttons or text buttons to comply with all languages. 


Another option is that we could include graphics for every language.  We have a Photoshop template for all of the graphics.  So changing the text in them is a snap.  We could also include our Photoshop templates with the release if you might want to consider using the graphics buttons.


Let me know which option would be best.  When you do, we will begin work on it.


Thanks Tom,


Justin C.

I hope this helps some of you and we really hope it gets adopted as the new qmailadmin interface. Please give us feedback in the mailing list and if you would like to see these changes in future releases of qmail admin please show your support.


I like where you're going with parts of this interface, but I noticed that you have many buttons rendered as graphics with text inside. Unfortunately, this breaks QmailAdmin's multi-language support.

Would it be possible to modify the templates to use straight text instead? That way we could move the text into the language files and allow for translations into all supported languages.

I had considered an interface where there was a thin menu bar across the top of each screen with something like this:

Main Menu | [+] Email Accounts | [+] Forwards | [+] Mail Robots | [+] Mailing Lists | Log Out

The [+] would be linked to "add", the main text would be linked to the "list" page for each account type.
