Is it possible to add breadcrumb-like navigation at the top of articles based on geography? For example, an article on Innsbruck, Austria (should there be one) would have a Europe -> Austria -> Tirol -> Innsbruck set of links at the top, for getting to other nearby places of intrest quickly. No big deal, but it would be nice. -- Blav

No, it'd be really nice. I posted a note on the MediaWiki mailing list about making it possible to declare relationships between articles, so you could say that Innsbruck is part of Tirol, which in turn is part of Austria, etc. I was thinking of it more for printing articles, or downloading articles to a PDA, but it'd also be great for doing breadcrumb stuff. -- Evan 09:25, 22 Nov 2003 (PST)
The new Mediawiki's Category feature, as used on Wikipedia, should allow a variant of this -- is this available/can it be enabled on Wikitravel? Jpatokal 23:12, 21 Jul 2004 (EDT)
The en:Template:IsIn allows this to be done by inserting {{IsIn|Place_article_name}} where the Place_article_name is the related parent article. Has this request been addressed? -- Huttite 02:48, 25 Dec 2005 (EST)
