Description

Being able to add menu links per project, as seen here on redmine.org with the 'Download' button leading to a selected URL. Ideally it would be set by project managers.

The only problem I foresee is the page template becoming distorted because of people adding too many links that don't fit into their browser width, but most people would probably only need a few.

History

Just thought I'd mention my use for this.
I'd rather have a central bulletin board for my entire site rather than one per-project, so a 'Forums' link to a specific category to that board would be very useful. I could put it into my project description, but I think most people would prefer and be more comfortable seeing it with the other menu links to maintain consistency and make it easier to find at a glance.

I would like to add links to our external nightly repository.

Such can also be done using the Tab plugin. See http://github.com/jamtur01/redmine_tab/tree/master. The only thing is that the plugin can only be used once per project. This makes it impossible to have more than one additional menu link.

I've also planned such a feature for release 0.3.0 of the Collapse plugin. See http://www.redmine.org/boards/3/topics/6770.

Note that I don't think this feature should be added as part of the Redmine Core. I think this could be done using a dedicated plugin in a more general way also.

Kind regards,

Mischa.

All your wishes are exactly granted by some or combination of the plug-ins:

  1. You can have a download button using a plugin called Redmine Download Button
  2. You can decorate such stuff in a side bar using a plugin called Per-project Sidebar [you can put full fledge wiki pages rendered as a decorative side page]
  3. You can use plugin Wiki Extensions which allows creating dedicated tabs on a project's menu and they can render specific wiki pages on that tabs.

Good enough?
