Please Read: Link/Button/Icon 2016-12-12 19:19:53 UTC, Kristen Hohenstein
Hey, folks! There's a lot of confusion over the difference between links/buttons/icons and whether you should report something if it says "click on the Go link" but it's actually a Go button, not a link.
We want to clear this up and give you one solution. A link is something that takes you to another location whether it be a new page, new tab, new window, etc. The only difference between a button and a link is that a button is a GUI element (e.g. is enclosed in a border, unlike a hyperlink.) For testing purposes, treat buttons and links the same — if you click on it and it takes you to a new location, it is a link. If someone tells you to click on the button, but it looks like an icon to you, click it. If it takes you somewhere it's a button, and therefore a link. So just to emphasize it further, for testing purposes button=link=icon as long as it's clickable and takes you to a new location. If an instruction tells you to click on the "Go" link and you only see a "Go" button, do NOT report it unless there is an actual problem that needs to be reported (e.g. the link/button/icon doesn't take you anywhere, you get an error message, etc.) Hopefully this clears up further confusion when testing! I'll also be updating the forum and the confusing scenarios wiki page with this information <3
