Hi Eddy,

Hi devs,

I`m not sure if we already have a discussion started on this topic, but in my opinion, it's long overdue. I see people start being confused and questions like this [1] start to be asked.

The new location of the Add menu in Flamingo is problematic IMO for a various number of reasons: - It falsely gives the impression that it adds page-related entries (i.e. related to the current page), due to its current location (i.e. in the page content) - It conflicts with AWM`s "Add new Entry" button

More generally speaking, this is true for a lot of livetables. We would need a generic "Create" button to be available when we instantiate a livetable. This could be useful for the wiki index page, for the user directory, for all the AWM homepages...

I guess you like the files live table from the File Manager then :) http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/File+Manager+Application#HFileLiveTable . Would be interesting to have such a toolbar (with support for custom buttons) before the live table don't you think?

Basically the button would let the user create a new item of the same type than the items displayed in the livetable. Right now we do this in an ad-hoc fashion, so it would be great to have a generic solution. It's also related to the automatic page name generation module (that we don't have in the core yet, though there's an extensions doing it <http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/Unique+Identification+Number+Module> ).

- from my POV, looking at the page from a far, the new location looks completely randomly selected: -- It's not on the left/top (as left-to-right language specific brains are trained to follow) -- it's not exactly at the top either -- it's not at the right -- it's not next to the type of elements it creates (i.e. next to WIKI/SPACE/PAGE) -- it basically is almost in the middle of the screen - etc. (i.e. others that don`t come right now to my mind)

Personally, I like the fact that it is located near the Edit button, even if it does not concern the current page. Because it groups the most basic and useful actions that you need when you want to contribute: EDIT, ADD.

To me, it makes sense.

I`d like to open a discussion on this, since it's quite an important aspect of the UI and, due to it's shiny green color (which I like :)), it`s hard to miss.

Is it just me who's resistant to change, or do others see a problem here with this as well?

Thanks, Eduard
