Don't display actions if there's only one

Description (last modified by gracinet) (diff)

Don't display an action (be it on a document, a directory, whatever context) if there is only one action available in this context.

This is a usability improvement.

Possible solutions:

  1. Simple, cheap and fast solution: Don't display the "View" action unless there is the "Modify Portal Content" permission
  1. Generic solution: don't display the action portlet if there is only one action available in the current context

  • Severity changed from normal to major
  • Summary changed from Don't display a single action to Don't display actions if there's only one
  • Description modified (diff)
  • Milestone changed from CPS 3.5.0 to CPS 3.5.1

Ugly for anonymous areas, and people really don't understand why they get this "view" icon

Would go for 2. although I use 1. a lot curently. Learned recently that the action should be available in request, so I'd prefer to tighten 2. with the fact that the current page is the action in question, to avoid user trapping.

  • Priority changed from P2 to P1
  • Milestone changed from CPS 3.5.1 to CPS 3.5.2

Like all true changes after rc1, it will have to wait a bit.
