Hierarchical Navigation

Navigation block that displays the current topic, its parent and children (if any).
This is intended to be included in other topics, for example in a side navigation bar (WebLeftBar).

NOTE: The lookup for parent and children will increase the loading time of your pages.

  • all
  • children

generates:

When included in WebLeftBar (using default Pattern skin) this is styled to:

%SEARCH{
"parent"

topic="%BASETOPIC%"
web="%BASEWEB%"
nonoise="on"
format="<li class='twikiParentTopic'><img src='%ICONURL{parent_gray}%' width='16' height='16' alt='' border='0' /> [[$web.$parent][$parent]]</li>"
}%
