Bread crumb navigation

Moved from travellers' pub by Evan


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)

Man, has anyone else seen htmlArea? It's really nifty -- a WYSIWYG HTML editor built into the browser. The new (3.0) version works with Mozilla and IE... I dunno about Konqueror, Opera, or anything else. But it'd be pretty neato to have WYSIWYG editing built into Wikitravel... --Evan 00:37, 20 Jan 2004 (EST)

Yeah, it's pretty neat. We were considering using it for our Bricolage installation at WHO this summer but switched to a Java solution since htmlArea was slightly broken on some of the browsers. It should be easier to make it work with Wiki markup though since it's soooo much simpler than HTML. -- Mark 01:25, 20 Jan 2004 (EST)
