Which file controls bigbutton please

edited December 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I am fiddling with BigButton ( start a new discussion )

Just wondered which file, I would need to edit to play with the button and its dependencies.

(file or files )

Looked in discussion and discussions folders... kind of bewildered lol

If its any help .. I am creating animated discussion button. Code is:

< a href="#" class="a-btn">
                        < span class="a-btn-text">Start a new< /span>
                        < span class="a-btn-slide-text">Thread< /span>
                        < span class="a-btn-icon-right">

    And if you start wrapping your multi-line code blocks in <pre><code> instead of just <code> you'll make my Christmas.

    Hint: Very similar path to newdiscussion.php.

    The other thing I highly recommend if you are doing Vanilla or any development/theming really. Get an IDE that allows you to search through files. Tim and I use netbeans which is great. A lot of designers use coda. Basically anything beyond a simple text editor allows you to search through all the files in a folder.

    Once you've got that you can just search for the text you see in the application. (ex. "Start a New Conversation").
