Affects Version/s: 6.1.0 CE RC1
Component/s: Documents & Media
Environment:Tomcat 7.0.22 + MySQL 5.5.15. 6.1.X Revision: 94208.
When a user has permissions to add only shortcuts to the Documents and Media portlet, the "Add" button that usually provides a drop-down menu of available options is replaced by a simple link for adding shortcuts. This does not occur when a user's permissions are restricted to only add documents or only add folders, since these permissions make available two separate options, which is apparently what causes the Add drop-down to appear.
To reproduce the issue:
1.) Add a new user
2.) Add a new role
3.) Remove the Power User role from the new user
3.) Define the new role as having permission to view the DM portlet, add shortcuts to it, and view it in the control panel
4.) Assign the new role to the new user
5.) Log in as the new user
6.) Navigate to the DM control panel portlet
Even if this is the intended functionality (i.e. only showing a link in lieu of using the Add menu when only one option is available), the link does not seem to be visually rendered to fit the aesthetics of the rest of the portlet (see attached screenshot).
