Breadcrumb navigation is here! Coolness! Is this enabled across all Wikitravel language versions now, assuming the proper templates are migrated etc? Jpatokal 03:27, 8 Dec 2005 (EST)

District pages look a little fugly if you try to add the IsIn code:
Singapore/Bugis

< Singapore
Asia : Southeast Asia : Singapore : Singapore/Bugis
Any way to make this look prettier? Something like this would be better:
Singapore/Bugis
From Wikitravel
Asia : Southeast Asia : Singapore : Bugis
< Singapore

It's enabled across all Wikitravel versions. It doesn't work well with sub-pages ("Page/Subpage") yet; we should probably discuss how we're going to deal with that. For now, I'll get rid of the "< " stuff, and make the sub-page navigation fit seamlessly into the "isin" navigation. Actually, if that's the case, you shouldn't have to bother putting "isin" stuff into sub-pages, since I can figure it out from the name... hmm.
In any event, yes, fun stuff. Let's get Wikitravel:Breadcrumb navigation started so we can document the process. --Evan 10:46, 8 Dec 2005 (EST)
So I should hold off putting isIns into district pages right? --Ravikiran 00:44, 9 Dec 2005 (EST)

It doesn't cover spaces into underscores? --Ravikiran 07:06, 8 Dec 2005 (EST)

No. What's happening under the covers is that the template is adding in-page RDF that describes the geographical hierarchy, and the breadcrumbing code just reads that RDF and builds navigation from it. It's pretty magical, but it does require that you use the "URL form" of the parent article's name. --Evan 10:46, 8 Dec 2005 (EST)
