I have an issue with Navigation. There are times when the map of the site doesn’t exactly match the folder structure on the server.
Take, for example, our site – Georgia Southwestern State University (http://gsw.edu/). If you click on “Site Map” up at the top, you’ll notice that there are several duplications. “Library”, for instance, shows up three times:
Academics -> Schools and Divisions -> Library Academics -> Academic Resources -> Library Services -> Services
Oddly, our library matches all three of those categories (a School, an Academic Resource, and a Service), but they should all point to the same set of files on the web site.
Therefore, I propose that you create a “pointer” property on a Navigation item which allows me to point one navigation point to its actual file site – like a soft link on a linux filesystem.
Furthermore, I think you should be able to point to files inside navigation. That way I could use a nav widget on, say “School of Computer Science and Math” to point to individual files inside that folder… so you’ll have full navigation for the page.
That way, I can still have “Library” in all three places on my site map (Navigation), but they all point to one actual folder.
