Link for displaying structure of current web/topic

It is possible to display location of any topic in webs/subwebs/topics structure calling a Tree macro. It is also possible to get a general overview of wiki structure in SiteMap

However I think that it might be convenient/useful to add link to the bottom or top of page which will show a topic that:
  • visualize position of current topic in webs/topics hierarchy. Since both: webs and topics might be parent to children topics, possibility to visually (for example by icon or color) differentiate them will give a deeper insight to current structure.
  • provide links to whole parent webs and children topics hierarchy
  • provide useful stats, for example: number of children topics, number of webs/topics on parent level, number of topics (all, on all levels) in current web
I think that most of that might be accomplished by including by default a Tree plugin and preparing appropriate topic where content of variables web and topic will be replaced/changed only

What do you think about it? Would you agree to add such Feature Requests?

This would probably be best done with an Extension. Feature proposals are probably not the best way to accomplish this, as they really don't go anywhere without a committed developer. Until a developer says "I'm willing to implement this" and sets a committed date, they just wait in the backlog.

(1) To display the web structure as a have a look at the FlexWebListTree example of FlexWebListPlugin.

(2) To display all topics of a web indented try this using DBCachePlugin

%DBRECURSE{"%WEB%.WebHome"}%

(3) To display all topics as a graph use DirectedGraphWebMapPlugin

Home work for you to combine (1) with (2) or (3) ... Performance warning: This could knock out your server crawling every single topic of the wiki.
