Milestone: BASE 2.4.2

Ahh... this doesn't look good. I have two suggestions that may help to improve the situation:

  1. The list of projects is limited to a certain number (~20?). If there are more projects, a menu item 'More...' is added as the last entry. Selecting this menu item takes the user to the projects list page.
  2. Introducing an on/off flag that hides the project. This was discussed in #1294, but not implemented since it hides the projects for all members, not just the one that has the problem with too many projects.

If 2 is wanted it needs a new ticket and can be included in 2.15. 1 can be included in 2.14.2.

I think 1 would do it. The question which 20 to display and I think the 20 latest (highest id) would be the best or maybe sticky tags?

The current sort order is by name, but I can change that to descending by id. Another possibility is to use the same sort order as on the projects list page. Other types of sorting that builds on remembering some kind of history will not work without more support from the core and I would classify this as an enhancement which should go in 2.15 instead.

I think the sort order of the project list page is fine. Then the user can choose order himself, if he notice the connection.
