User Avatar should have a dropdown menu


(Luke S) #1

Just what the title says. In the user-bar (upper right, in english) the avatar icon, which currently links to [username]/activity, should have a dropdown menu, similar to all the other items in the user-bar.

Some targets available from the menu should be:

  • Activity
  • Preferences
  • Messages
  • Logout

As (if) it becomes available, I would add:

Such a menu is a fairly standard feature of websites today, and would be consistent with the styling of the user-bar. Also, it is weird to make me go to another page to logout.

I like this suggestion. PR in this department is more than welcome.

I submitted a pull request for this feature.

Feedback and discussion on code, tests, styling is much appreciated!

Very nice and clean. Just what I had in mind.

I really like it, but somehow I must have missed how to activate it? Emptied caches, recompiled assets, etc.

hmmm its in latest … just click on your avatar above.


(Sander Datema) #8

I did, a lot. :slight_smile: But it just brings me to the preferences page, like before.

Hmmm what browser are you on, does the issue repro in all?

I’ll have to install a test version of Discourse, cause I see the dropdown on Meta, just not on my forum. Though it has nothing fance, no plugins, etc.
