Menu becomes left-aligned

Reported by: sam@… Owned by: cbalan
Priority: normal Component: MenusPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


When activating MenusPlugin, the menu suddenly becomes left-aligned whereas on every vanilla Trac installation it is right-aligned. This is confusing because all the other Trac links and buttons are on the right of the page. With a wide browser window, this makes navigation painful.

You actually simply need to change the float entry value in tracmenus.css from 'left' to 'right':

.sf-menu li {
	float:			right;
	position:		relative;


.sf-menu {
  float:                  right;
  margin-bottom:  1em;

But then the bad thing is that the displaying of sub menus doesn't work correctly on the most right menu item because it's clipped by the browser window border.

You should rather consider to change the menu position of Trac's original menu from right to left since that is the common position of a menu in GUIs of programs. I wonder why Trac decided to put the menu by default on the right side.
