  • Update filter markup to bootstrap defaults and remove custom styles

  • Put "add mapping" button and pagination alongside each other
  • Introduce a visited link colour, with overrides for buttons
  • Only use New Transport typeface for headings

* Rename query params to parameters
* Add an abbreviation for TNA
* Bootstrap comes with link and active link colours, but no visited
* Set visited link colour to purple
* Create a colours file for this variable
* Stop links in the header, which are against black, from appearing
* Wrap main role area in a 'content' class
* Use bootstrap's form-inline class and markup and remove custom filter
label and input styles
* Add placeholder text with example path
* Add a filter icon to input field using boostrap pattern, with tooltip
* Cleans up vertical alignment and attempts to clarify feature
* Switch from success style, we haven't succeeded yet
* Create variables for each button's text colour, this isn't already
* Use these colours to override the visited text colour
* eg Stops blue buttons having purple text
* Keep UI elements contiguous
* Easily add and remove margins based on the baseLineHeight defined by
bootstrap (20px)
* Avoids the need to create CSS classes that simply manipulate margins
* Labels were being styled at 14px/20px, when all other text was
* Icon is confusing
* Pagination when placed alongside a button looked awkward
* Create a structure import for structure based variables
* Update pagination to be 30px high (default button size)
* Add a default for border radius too
* Only apply bottom margin on pagination
* Move "no mappings" and "remove filter" messages to the Filter by path
* Make "remove filter" link available on all filtered results pages
* Avoid stacking controls
* Move (presumed) less used 'new mapping' button to the right, with
pagination on the left
* Bring new mapping button back to left when no pagination, or no
* The default pagination window made the number of page links on screen
unruly, and at thinner page widths would break the layout.
* See
* Switch from new to add, but leave 'new' in place on create pages/forms
* Add a plus icon
* Move button to a partial
* Show a total count for all mappings
* It helps illustrate how much a list has been filtered
* On sites and mappings indexes use the bootstrap page header class on
the H1
* This increases vertical spacing and adds a light horizontal rule
* With a header containing the mappings count, this message in the
filter label is no longer necessary
* Keep body copy using bootstrap defaults
* Body copy now uses: "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif
* Improves button spacing and icon alignment in bootstrap
* Conforms with other admin tools

Visiting the last page makes the pagination controls disappear.

<% else %>
<%= paginate(@mappings) %>
<div class="clearfix">

What's the clearfix for? (Excuse my ignorance - if I remove it, nothing seems to change)

Yep, this was unnecessary. I've removed and revised in d0c1f30

If the <section role="main"> tag is involved in this, can we change it to <main role="main"> now that's a valid tag?

* Fix bug where pagination would be hidden on the last page
* Update pagination feature test to look for two sets of pagination
* Include missing 'then' in original page 2 scenario
* Remove the clearfix and wrapper which aren't necessary
* Include a margin on the add button, when it collapses on thinner page
widths it will keep the correct vertical spacing
* Use the new HTML5 semantic element <main>, which aligns with role=main
* Update the HTML5-Shiv from v3.6.2pre to v3.6.2, which includes
support for <main>
* Remove .content class, <main> is unique enough, it can only be used
once anyhow

@tombye I've updated to use <main>, and switched to the version of HTML5 Shiv being used on (3.6.2), although 3.7 came out last week.
