Summary0025495: UI alert if non-main project is selected
Description

Many trackers will have a main project, and then many secondary projects.

It is very easily to accidentally forget that you have switched to a secondary project (which may have been ages ago), then get confused why you can't find the issues. The project selector doesn't stand out.

I suggest some kind of feature to alert a user when they're not on the main project. In our tracker I made the project selector red, but I recognize this might not be the slickest solution.

TagsNo tags attached.

In case someone starts to implement it:

Which one is the "Main" project?
Is it some new global setting or is it the Default Project project set in My Account > Preferences

In our hackery case it's just the first one:

$in_main_project = ($t_project_ids[0] == $current_projects);
echo '<form method="post" name="form_set_project" action="' . helper_mantis_url( 'bug_change_status_page.php' ) . '"' . ($in_main_project ? '' : ' style="font-weight: bold; color: red"' ) . ' class="form-inline">';
