Built in Navigation

  1. murky


    The navigation tags in WP could be improved. It has some of these features already, others are in plugins only (and some plugins no longer work) - others aren't there at all. To my mind, all of these should be 'core'... and available in all relevant layouts. I.e. I should be able to step by date in an individual post page.

    Prev/Next in category (with the tag repeating for multiple categories)

    Prev/Next day

    Prev/Next week

    Prev/Next month

    Earlier/Later (like prev/next day, will not just go earlier in a particular context, e.g. not just earlier posts in january, but when the earliest january post is found, it'll go to september.

    Built in 'breadcrumbs' i.e. 'where am I' - ideally will show all possible contexts, e.g. on an individual post it will show Home >> Cat 1 >> Cat 2 (for each relevant cat)
    as well as Home >> Year >> Month >> Day
    This'd be configurable, so a user could have primary category only, all categories, date breadcrumb only etc.

    The category list should have options to show only parent categories and subcategories (to a user definable depth). It should be possible to easily show all first level categories, with relevant subcategories expanded (optionally with n children categories expanded).

    E.g. a post in Cat B > Cat 3 might have

    Cat A
    Cat B
    Cat 1 ('uncle' cats would have appropriate class for hiding if needed)
    Cat 2
    Cat 3
    Cat i
    Cat ii
    Cat 4
    Cat C
    Cat D
