With the addition of new contribution actions to the Contributions page, and considering the size of the search form, the list of current contributions is pushed down the page:
# Proposed solution
By using an horizontal layout and reducing padding (8px and 16px modules), the action bar can be made more compact:
We need to monitor the effects on the use of the entry point when deploying this change to make sure we are not affecting the effectiveness of the entry point by making it less prominent.
# Further ideas
We need to evaluate if the above change solves the concerns about accessing the contributions list. If that is not the case, we can explore additional approaches:
- Remove the "new section header" .
- Use an alternative compact version of the contribution actions only for those cases where the user has already made several contributions. In this way, new users (with few items in the contributions) will get a prominent call to action to create new content while advanced editors will be able to navigate their contributions easily while still having access to create new content.
- Make the search form more compact/collapsible.
