Summary0022452: Create new project button


This is a usability issue: when you want to create a project and you have many projects the button is at the bottom of the page.
It will be better to have it at the top of the page (or to have two buttons).


TagsNo tags attached.

I don't see this is a big deal. Having it at the end is consistent with a lot of other places and it is not like tons of new projects are being created all the time.

When submitting PRs, please always include before/after screenshots.

It's not a real big deal as we can always create projects but we have 400 projects defined in Mantis (many sub-projects) and also some archived ones.

When you have to create a project you go to the project page and you have to scroll to the bottom (if you know the button is at the bottom) to access this functionnality.
That's why I think positioning the button at the top is a good thing to do.

I also updated the PR with a screenshot.
