The simple idea is I would like integrate all Atlassian products with a modified header which include tabs.
Like here for example : http://tracker.phpbb.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa
There's tabs, and each tabs will correspond in the order :
tab1 : Presentation HTML Page
tab2 : JIRA
tab3 : Confluence
tab4 : FishEye
tab5 : phpBB Forum (where users are linked with Crowd, if you have some informations of how to do it)
tab6 : HipChat
tab7 : etc... if any ...
For the moment, the tabs will be only in html / css.
But I plan for the future using ajax to load all the pages within tabs the first time the main page loads and when someone uses links inside a tab, each time someone click on a new tab and then come back to initial tab, no need to reload all the page from start and it will keep history of where the user went in each tab. It will be usefull for Hipchat for example, to not reload the page each time we click on the hipchat tab. I hope it is comprehensible :)
I can plan also doing an addon on the plugin market anyway in the future with that functionalities.
So, any first help modifying headers is needed please.
I wrote a plugin to do this, but it required complete rewrites when upgrading jira sometimes. This isn't fun. This solution works without a plugin:
Thanks for the link but not good. I can't add a phpBB forum in that tabs system, and a real forum (no community bubbles) is required for us. Also it is impossible actually for us to pay $399 for a tabs system, our company is not yet created, we make no benefits and this will be for a long time before any of each projects we work on gives any benefits, so we can't choose this solution.
Is there any way to modify the header of Jira, Confluence, ... directly ?
And I will try to make a free plugin later.
Thanks for answer. It can be a start making my own plugin.
Is it possible with that solution to place menu in another place (like on the very top head place, by puting tabs menu just next the Jira logo for example ?
Is that works for Confluence and FishEye as well ?
If the new created plugin is installed via plugins manager, it will not be a pain while updating, only if it is manual source file modification I suppose ?
Don't lose your time with that, it's not a good UI pattern, here's why.
That used to be the way Atlassian was publishing their products in OnDemand in 2011. They removed it and replaced it with the far-left menu icon.
Besides, you'll have the following problems:
The problems you seem to be trying to solve are:
You'd better 1. Create a portal, like intranet.mycompany.com, with nice icons to each Atlassian apps and how to request access; 2. Let projects have their own space in Confluence so they can describe what they're about; 3. If anything, tweaks all links about projects in JIRA, Confluence, Fisheye etc to link to their Confluence space, so project members have an incentive to update their welcome page.
