comment How to display login link to admin user
@JoshuaBarron: Thanks for that, but I do think that this is a UX question. I am just looking for ideas or best practices to approach this issue. And I could apply some server side logic when I know how to approach this problem. When an anonymous user looks at the page, I don't know if it is an admin user or a general user and I don't think server side logic will help there. I hope that helps with some confusion

For accessibility, the images should always have an alternate text so screen readers will be able to read it.

comment Home page design with search options
Thanks for that, but we can't provide the user with a search box. So that's out of the picture. I do agree that a menu has a different goal to search options, but all that our menu will do is to navigate to the advanced search pages for the four different search types, because that's what the application will provide. Please have a look at my comment to Michael Zuschlag.

I think I like option 1. We can't really give the users a search box. We have to give the users a dropdown and a checkbox list. Giving them an option to select the search type from the dropdown list seems like a good idea. However, the fourth search type may not have the same search criterion, in which case we can show different controls on selection from the search type dropdown list.

comment Should a search page have a clear button?
+1: thanks for your help. We've decided to provide a clear button only when the user is coming back to the search screen from the results page, which means that they have the option to start a new search or change the current search by adding/removing filters.

Thanks. I think everyone is pretty much of the same consensus. It does help.

comment Should a search page have a clear button?
But if you look at ebay's advanced search, then they do provide a clear button. The problem is, that I can see its use, when you've selected a lot of criteria and don't want to sit there and clear it one by one. But most of the websites I see, don't provide that functionality. So we do want to go with the more popular approach, but want to know the reason behind it.
