This request is to help lower the learning curve and to make navigation more obvious.

I've used trac for many months now, but still keep forgetting how to navigate to "Custom Query". Some people in my team didn't know this feature exists - they just use Search. Why? The link is not always visible.

When viewing a ticket (where I spend most of my time), the "View Tickets" button is selected (but with no sub-options shown). Therefore I never think to click it again. So instead:

  • I click something else like "Search". Nope not there…
  • I click "View Tickets", and the text appearing on the left attracts my view. I don't even notice something small has appeared under "view tickets", because there was nothing there before.
  • I scratch my head and hunt around some more.

Proposed solution:

In all screens where the "View Tickets" button is rendered selected, the two sub-options "Available Reports" and "Custom Query" should also be displayed.
