Subject:[xwiki-devs] [Discussion] New location of the "Add" menu in the new Flamingo skin
From:Eduard Moraru (enyg@gmail.com)

Hi devs,

I`m not sure if we already have a discussion started on this topic, but in my opinion, it's long overdue. I see people start being confused and questions like this [1] start to be asked.

The new location of the Add menu in Flamingo is problematic IMO for a various number of reasons: - It falsely gives the impression that it adds page-related entries (i.e. related to the current page), due to its current location (i.e. in the page content) - It conflicts with AWM`s "Add new Entry" button - from my POV, looking at the page from a far, the new location looks completely randomly selected: -- It's not on the left/top (as left-to-right language specific brains are trained to follow) -- it's not exactly at the top either -- it's not at the right -- it's not next to the type of elements it creates (i.e. next to WIKI/SPACE/PAGE) -- it basically is almost in the middle of the screen - etc. (i.e. others that don`t come right now to my mind)

I`d like to open a discussion on this, since it's quite an important aspect of the UI and, due to it's shiny green color (which I like :)), it`s hard to miss.

Is it just me who's resistant to change, or do others see a problem here with this as well?

Thanks, Eduard
