I'm considering paying a developper to add this feature for me. So I was wondering if you have already begin to think about the way to implement this, so I can begin the work in the same way, and maybe propose a patch.
The way I see it :
It should look like exactly as a directory structure, like a static web site. Why ? Because it's a way of thinking that everybody is used to, and specialy google.
So it would be an inifite nested directories and documents, with the possibility to specify an "index.html" content for any directory.
And of course, it should reflect in the url.
How to do this in Joomla :
- a Category manager, where we can create/move/delete categories
- a single menu "category" in com_content, and may be in other content components, to choose the category for this document.
- a modification of the router to create some beautifull url like http://www.mysite.com/products/computer ... ewone.html
As you can see, it's a very basic way : no description of category, no content in multiple category. Just the old school web site behavior, you remember ? when you have to create directory and subdirectory, and put htmls files in it ? I can't see a best way to organise information. And google agree with me.
So if I developpe a plugin like this, do you think it will be compatible with the way you will insert this in 1.6 or 1.7 ? Or do you see it in a completely different way ?
Thanks a lot.
