[patch] Move restore button to ctxtnav

Reported by: Steffen Hoffmann Owned by: Steffen Hoffmann
Priority: normal Component: DataSaverPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: navigation
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12

Description

I suggest to move the »Restore Form« button from metanav down to ctxtnav.

When I installed and tested this plugin for the first time, I initially failed to see the button. Obviously I expected it to appear on top of the form, not above the main navigation. After some days of usage the current position seems still counterintuitive to me.

Trac Release: 0.110.12

I've done the changes on top of another effort for i18n support (see #7517), successfully testing a patched version here right now. And the new position in context navigation feels much better, just move prominent and easier accessible than before.

I'll attach a screen capture for advertising this improvement shortly.

I invite you to take a look at the new look. I haven't done a 'before' screenshot, but you'll have seen it, if you've already given DataSaverPlugin a try. If not, why do you hesitate?

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [8702]) DataSaverPlugin: Reorganize code and web_ui content, closes #7518.

Move restore button to ctxtnav for better visibility. Other changes are mainly to simplify and standardize code and package structure:

  • change entry point to make init.py content obsolete
  • move JS and CSS files to 'htdoc' directory
  • remove INavigationContributor stuff for (obsoleted) metanav addon
