New: automatic breadcrumbs for FORSSA

As an added value to users of our FORSSA Wizard (citydesk template) we have added the automatic generation of breadcrumbs for the (automatically generated) two-level navigation pages. Breadcrumbs are link lists such as

home > section1 > section11

with home and section1 (in this example) being links to upper levels in the navigation hierarchy.

No HTML, CityScript, Javascript or PHP coding required and no need to manually edit breadcrumbs and to put them in an extras field: You can reorganize the navigation and breadcrumbs by simple drag and drop of navigation articles in CityDesk.

FORSSA users get a free update and the method will also be published in the upcoming Wizard Website.

See http://www.telepark.de/2003/en/navigation/citydesk.html for more information.

The upcoming Wizard Website is restricted to CityDesk Wizard users only (login will be required) and will feature tips and tricks on how to modify/extend Wizards as well as general CityDesk usage and development information as well as site creation techniques.

Hey, got 4 kids to feed....And just now lightning struck for our sins and the server at our provider's went down...back in an hour. Did we deserve this ? :-)

You know what, John ? You are right. Its going to be a free community site after all. Will feed the kids some other way ;-)

Cheers

I couldn't find the explanation anywhere on your page, nor the Wizards community page.

Be nice, please. Let us all in on your secret way of creating automatic breadcrumbs within CD. Joel's KB article isn't horrible, but bad enough to taste like a hack instead of offering a solution.

Pretty please.

Hope that helps.

BTW, our Wizards community site is not online yet. The current community "page" at www.telepark.de is a simple list of pointers to worthwhile CityDesk-related sites.
