manage_navbar.dtml contains

<select id="addItemSelect" class="form-control-sm" name=":action"
  data-title-active="Select type to add"
  data-title-inactive="STATUS INACTIVE: New Object can only be Added in the List View"
  title="Select type to add"
  onchange="addItem( elm=this, base_url='<dtml-var "REQUEST.get('URL1','')">'); this.selectedIndex = 0;"
  ><option value="" selected="selected">Select type to add</option>
  <dtml-if "_.len(filtered_meta_types) > 1"
    ><dtml-in filtered_meta_types mapping sort=name
      ><dtml-if action><option value="&dtml.html_quote-action;">&dtml-name;</option>

Obviously, no add type to select is shown, if filtered_meta_types returns a sequence with just one element. Upfront logic make the element inactive in this case.

Zope 2 handled the case "len(filtered_meta_types) == 1" specially by replacing the "select type to add" directly by an "add XXXX" control in this case. While this is nice, the case is sufficiently rare that in my view its special casing is not mandatory. Therefore, I suggest to remove the <dtml-if "_.len(filtered_meta_types) > 1">.

Zmi add fix #505 (single add item) and #506 ("addItemSelect" handling) (

* fix for #505: no special handling for single `filtered_meta_types` in `App.dtml.manage_navbar.dtml`
fix for #506: generate the `addItemSelect` form only for a context with unacquired `filtered_meta_types`

* Improve on fix for #506: ensure that `filtered_meta_type` is called with the "normal" acquisition wrapper - in case, that `filtered_meta_type` relies on implicit acquisition

* apply first part of `drfho`s change request (remove commented JS block)

* - removed unnecessary condition and fix misplaced tag opening/closing
