TemplateData help link is a frameless button, rather than simply a link
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Story Points


In ext.templateDataGenerator.ui.js, the documentation link (templatedata-helplink) isn't wikified, so users tend to not notice it or to not think it is clickable.
(That help link is shown when we edit a template or its documentation).

Thank you, it already looks much better.
But it seems like a hack.

By looking at how it's done for the link inside the template tool, I found out that removing the class "oo-ui-buttonElement-button" from the <a> tag seems to do it.
