Feature Proposal: Hierarchal webs should be exploded in the breadcrumbs

Motivation

Currently, if you have the web Bar living under Foo, the breadcrumbs will display "Foo/Bar", but offering no way to navigate to the Foo web. This is frustrating.

Description and Documentation

Hierarchal webs offer a way of nesting webs. Often you're nesting related items, for example, a motoring TWiki might have Cars/Ford or Cars/Mazda. These are not exploded in the breadcrumbs, so if you are in the Mazda web, you have no way to navigate to the Cars web.

The slash indicates a parent association, so the breadcrumbs should properly reflect that, so they would be: TWiki > Cars > Mazda not TWiki > Cars/Mazda

This is not a request for the name of the web to be changed, only that the breadcrumb trail understands and displays a more intuitive set of links.

Discussion

This is not the first time we see this request.

Is there a developer interested in committing to implement this? It is an easy one?

-- KennethLavrsen - 05 Mar 2008

I am interested, as we have precisely this need too currently. So I will do it on the BreadCrumbsPluginDev, if there is no objection from MichaelDaum

This looks like a small change that should be in the core. No-brainer.

-- PeterThoeny - 05 Mar 2008

The BreadCrumbsPlugin already separates webs and subwebs as parts of the breadcrumbs trail.
