Display navigation menu as fixed menu or other navigation options


Normally, when you scroll a Trac page, the main menu and other navigation controls may scroll out of the visible area. This plugin enables a more elegant way: either let the main menu stay fixed on top of the window or add bottom controls of context navigation.

Type of displaying menu, see screenshot of PreferencePanel. Possible types are:

  • normal (default): leaves menu as in the Trac standard
  • fixed_menu: fixes menu on top of browser window
  • buttom_ctx_menu: adds context menu at bottom of page, if available

This plugin implements #8135.

Furthermore mainnav entries are customizable through the user preferences page, see also #10543.
