Description (last modified by Christian Boos)

With this menu, it would be easier to perform actions on resources (wiki page, ticket #10948, ticket comment #12671).

The idea would be to remove from the contextual navigation the link what's not a navigation to another resource (e.g. wiki history is rather an action on the resource itself, show me the page's history), and to gather the bottom of the page buttons (Edit, Delete, Rename) into a contextual menu at the top of the resource, a bit like what we have now for the ticket comment.

Replying to Jun Omae:

… the buttons are shown only when cursor is hovered in property changes box. As the results, it is difficult to click the buttons.

But also the whole <h3> line as well, in particular the comment:n part which is just above the buttons. But I think you're right anyway, it's not as obvious as it should be.

If you remember my idea presented recently on trac-dev about a "page menu" (gmessage:trac-dev:eVU0q8Tatgo/pokz_FIyEQAJ), I think it could be transposed here as well: we would have a permanent menu reminder character/icon (▤, ≣), which would show the list of actions for the comment when hovered / clicked.

Something like:
