But I'm actually more interested in a deeper aspect here: what will button colors do to my conversion funnel? So here's an idea for a weekend hack: I would pay money for a PnP button A/B testing solution that automagically converged to statistically optimal colors.
Most of my clients would struggle getting results at sufficient velocity with 10-way multivariate testing to say nothing of zomg-way multivariate testing.
Totally separate problem: Button color is far from the most salient thing you could be testing.
It's just too tempting to play around with color changes all day instead of building my business.
linear-gradient(top, color1, color2)
linear-gradient(to bottom, color1, color2)
For those interested in this, mindhunter sent me a link on the issue, http://www.broken-links.com/2012/01/11/the-new-and-hopefully....
I suppose the generated CSS works pretty much with any templates, not just Twitter Bootsrappers.
Here's another tool which I use it often: http://www.colorzilla.com/gradient-editor/
But, in short: It'll still work on IE, even now.
If it doesn't work for you, rather than posting here, e-mail me, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
I think that's why it's just vanilla CSS...
A good illustration of this fact:
Cars, what's the difference between a 370z and a Porsche Cayman? Well the 370z won't turn as many heads because you see them all the time.
It takes time to make a nice custom button/graphic/logo but it is time is well spent!
Is Twitter Bootstrap a website theme, or is it intended to be a framework that you can style in multiple ways?
However, the biggest gripe that people have with it is that the default styling just works - and many people tend not to bother changing that.
