Navboxes for clusters of pages (2 posts)

    On my site, I have what I refer to as "photo sets". Many of these are more than one page. To tie these multiple-page photo sets together, I have been using navigation boxes at the top and bottom of the pages. For example:

    http://www.schuminweb.com/schumin-web/life-and-times/2010/year-2010-1.php

    The white box with "Part 1", "Part 2", and "Part 3" is the navigation box.

    On my current site, I do this as an HTML file, which is then placed on the page using PHP. The box itself is a table that's styled with CSS.

    How do I do a similar thing under WordPress? I want to include the same navbox across several pages, and it will link to pages inside WordPress. Thus doing it the way I have been doing it seems contrary to all of it being integrated together nicely, and there has to be a better way to do it. Any ideas?

    You could create custom menus for each of your clusters in Appearance >> Menus, and then use the footer widgets to add a bunch of custom-menu widgets each calling a different cluster of pages? Maybe?

    You could also create a page-template that displays a list of that pages parent &sibling pages somewhere prominent, so that each section/cluster had its own internal nav?
