    Description

      The current way of providing navigation to different levels in the TOC using blocks e.g. http://docs.moodle.org/20/en/Forum takes up a lot of space on the page and shows a lot of links. I suggest we instead have a navigation bar/trail and just one navigation block:

      • Navigation bar/trail shows items in higher levels in TOC
      • Items in lower level in TOC are listed in the page
      • Navigation block on right lists items in the same level in TOC

      Implementing this requires navigation template edits.

      Example 1:

      http://docs.moodle.org/test/Activities - uses http://docs.moodle.org/test/Template:Home
      http://docs.moodle.org/test/Forum - uses http://docs.moodle.org/test/Template:Activities
      http://docs.moodle.org/test/Forum_settings
      http://docs.moodle.org/test/Using_Forum
      http://docs.moodle.org/test/Forum_FAQ - all 3 use http://docs.moodle.org/test/Template:Forum

      Example 2:

      http://docs.moodle.org/test/Evaluation_tools - uses http://docs.moodle.org/test/Template:Home (as for Activities page and other items in same level)
      http://docs.moodle.org/test/Tracking_progress - uses http://docs.moodle.org/test/Template:Evaluation_tools
      http://docs.moodle.org/test/Conditional_activities - uses http://docs.moodle.org/test/Template:Tracking_progress
      http://docs.moodle.org/test/Conditional_activities_settings - uses http://docs.moodle.org/test/Template:Conditional_activities

      None of the above templates uses transclusion (the nesting of one template within another template). Perhaps there's a more efficient way of doing things?
