Possible new button styles coming to EDD v1.8

In Easy Digital Downloads version 1.8 (the next release), we are contemplating introducing a completely new button style, one that is based on the new version of Twitter’s Bootstrap.

Before we do this, however, we want to ask you, the users, what you think. Please look at the screenshots below and let us know if you love ’em, hate ’em, don’t really care, or any other feedback you have!

If you wish to provide additional feedback, besides the poll below, feel free to comment on github.

    Surprised by the results so far. Nothing “wrong” with the new style but legibility wise, the old style is much easier to read and I’ll take function over form most times, especially when it comes to a UI element.

    my 2 cents.

    I prefer the old style, but mostly because I was able to pretty much drop it straight in one of my sites and it matched without having to style at all.

    But, either way works. If there’s a site that it doesn’t work on it’s easy enough to style to match.

    Based on the poll results, we have decided to go with the new button styles. Thank you everyone for your feedback!

    Hi, I would like the option to use any .jpg image for a button image. I like larger more minimalistic buttons and if I could use my own images, then I would much rather do that.

    Is this possible?
