I wonder if it might not be a good idea to let authors easily add the
current page a trail page in general? I've structured the wiki.lyx.org so
that I've got pages called 'PageList' in each group, so that there is a
documenation trail for people to follow.
One problem is that it's not so easy for infrequent authors to know about
this when creating a new page... so something like this might help. OTOH,
how would they know about writing the equivalent of (:blog ...:).
So what if we could have a field in the edit page (perhaps only when
creating the page the first time), which let's the author either fill in
the name of the trail page, or simply check a box to have it added to the
default trail page? (The name of that trail page would need to be shown).
Perhaps the question could be phrased as follows:
You are creating a new page. Would you like to add this page to
the default [[wiki trail]] in this group, i.e. [[page list]]?
See [[about trails]] for more details.
Just a thought.
