Text specifying which UI a user is looking at is incorrect

      Description

      In the top right corner of the admin UI, a text is available to indicate whether the user is looking at the original UI or the new one.

      But it currently says "New UI" for http://localhost:8983/solr/#/ and "Original UI" for http://localhost:8983/solr/index.html#/ when it should be the other way around.

      This issue is tied to #SOLR-7666

          Those "new UI" and "Original UI" are supposed to be links rather than titles. From your original confusion I took the fact that that wasn't clear.

          Please do an SVN up, and redo 'ant server' - you'll see I've added a warning message on the new UI (as a part of SOLR-7858). Let me know what you think - is it clearer now? Other suggestions as to how to make it clear that the "New UI" words are a link not a title?

          The new message on the new UI is definitely much better.

          For the link on the old UI, how about something like this:

          "Try the New UI"
          "Switch to the New UI"
          "Go to the New UI"
          "Feeling bold? Check out the new UI here"

          Anything with a verb (call to action) would indicate that this is a link instead of a title, so that would be a fist step towards making it clearer.

          I want to suggest some CSS/UI improvements like adding an underline or something to it to make it look like a link, but there is nothing else on that page that would give a visual queue to the user that an underline means link because there aren't any like that on the page.
          The only similar links are in the footer (documentation, issue tracker, etc). So maybe adding an icon (eg. right arrow ->) next to it and making it the same style (on hover) like the footer links.

          All good suggestions. Wanna have a go at a patch?

          Edit files in server/solr-webapp/webapp. They should then show up in your browser immediately.

          You will need to copy the changed files over to webapp/web, then do svn diff > SOLR-8199.patch and then attach that file to this issue.

          If you just want to keep looking for other issues, that's fine too
