Summary0022688: Menu items not clickable if plugins add too many of them
Description

I use a plugin that adds 6 buttons to the menu on the left side. On some older laptops the display resolution is too low so that not all menu buttons are visible. Collapsing the menu would help, but the button to collapse it isn't visible as well. Currently the only solution is to zoom out until all buttons are visible.
It would be great if Mantis could handle such a situation a bit better. I agree that a scrollable menu probably would be quite ugly, but maybe the collapse button could be turned into a sticky button that won't be moved out of the visible screen. For me this already would be sufficient.

It may be helpful to provide us with a link to the plugin you're using, as it would facilitate problem reproduction.

I don't know if that's an option, but as a workaround, you may want to consider changing the plugin so that it uses a sub-menu approach (similar to the Manage page) instead of adding so many top-level items.

The plugin is an internal one of my company. I cannot make it public that easy. But I can provide a sample plugin that just adds enough menu items to reproduce the problem. Shall I?

Sub-menus already are used to some degree, but the plugin is a huge one and there are plenty of pages that cannot really be grouped logically underneath the same main menu item.
