Projects drop-down menu of new 3.0 theme (Feature #813)
Following up on my comment to the discussion of the new theme (see https://www.chiliproject.org/boards/1/topics/1073?r=1116#message-1116), I'd like to open this feature request for better tracking of this issue.
The background is that with version 3.0.0 beta1 on Mac OS X 10.6.8 using Safari, the Projects drop-down menu gives no ability to reach the projects overview other than be right click and open in new tab/window even though Safari recognizes the menu button as link to this page.
One proposed solution is to always have a "View all projects" entry in the drop-down menu. As a side effect, the menu will never be empty.
A second proposal for this drop-down menu is to display all public projects in the menu, when no user is logged in and login is not required to browse the public projects instead of having an empty menu. When a user is logged in, only the projects of this user are shown and the extra menu entry "View all projects" can still be used to navigate to the projects overview.
I attached a patch where I implemented this by modifying the apps/views/layouts/base.rhtml file. There might, however, be better ways to introduce this...
Isn't something like this already implemented?
