      Code, User Interface


      There are still a few places where buttons don't look "Flamingo" enough. For example when editing a Dashboard or on a different user's profile page (Follow button).


      Before starting your task familiarize yourself a bit with XWiki. You can see it in action in the Playground, so you should create an account there and test it a bit.
      Your task might involve actions or applications that are not available on the Playground, so make sure you download and install the latest version of XWiki.

      For questions you can always use the Forum or the IRC channel, see http://dev.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Community/Discuss

      Try to reproduce the issue described by the task. You should use your browser's Developer Tools to identify and test your solution.

      Once you have reproduced the issue presented in the task, it's the time to identify the location where it needs to be fixed in the code.
      The sources are available at https://github.com/xwiki/xwiki-platform . You should be familiar with using Git locally or you might be able to commit your changes from the GitHub interface.

      The task will give you hints about the component where the code with the problem is located. Identify the file, make the changes and submit a Pull Request for mentors to approve and close the task. Don't forget to add screenshots with before and after your changes.


      Make the buttons consistent with the other buttons across XWiki. Make sure the same styling and HTML classes are used. Test your changes with different Flamingo Themes.
