Captions / Page titles and Breadcrumb (Feature #654)

Added by Romano Licker at 2011-10-12 03:02 pm. Updated at 2011-11-07 01:34 am.

Remote issue URL: Affected version:2.3.0


The caption of a page (meaning the title of a menu-item) is sometimes not displayed (Wiki/Repository) or is being replaced with another title like in Issues - #someissue, where "Issues" is replaced by "'Bug #651".
E.g. : Caption "Issues" on and caption on

For the new design we thought about that and came up with two proposals:

1. We remove the title of a module from the main content and extend the project breadcrumb. This way we have a single breadcrumb which indicates where we are in the project and from there, where we are in the system. E.g. "Chiliproject >> Chiliproject-Sub-Project >> Issues >> New Issue"

2. Instead of replacing the modul name (like in Issues) we extend it gradually "Issues >> Bug #546" having a similar behavior like in the Wikipages (and their subpages).

What are your thoughts about this? Feel free to share.

Not sure about having something "breadcrumb-ish" in the title.

Removing from 2.4.0 anyway because it's more in scope with the design change.

  • Target version changed from 2.4.0 to 3.0.0

Going from general to specific would make the title less useful for me ("ChiliProject > Sub-Project > Issues > New Issue"). When you have multiple tabs open they get truncated so all you would see is "ChiliProje.." "ChiliProje.." "ChiliProje..".

Going from specific to general would be better but I really don't see what that would improve.

I guess I need to see the code before I can make a call on this.

(Removing from 3.0.0: there is no patch ready for review and there is no final decision on how to approach it)

  • Target version deleted (3.0.0)
