Description

The behavior for browsing categories has changed, and not to my liking. If this was not intentional, then it is a regression (as I've listed it). If this was intended, then please consider this a "wish" to restore the old behavior or (perhaps better yet) provide a plugin that allows me to control the display.

I have two versions available for viewing. They are not show.tiki.org, but they should do for demonstration.

11.2-
http://www.hrsms.org/home/cat74?deep=on&type=wiki+page&sort_mode=name_asc

9.2-
http://www.hrsms.org/home9/cat74?deep=on&type=wiki+page&sort_mode=name_asc

I like that in 9.2 it only shows the current category, and without watch links.

In 11.2, all categories are shown, with watch links (which in my opinion just add clutter to the page), and the category listing is expanded to the last viewed, not the current. To see this:
a) Browse categories on this site
b) Expand "How To-->Hulls"
c) On left menu, select "Models-->By Nationality"
d) Note that the results displayed are for nationality, but the category listing is still expanded to "how to--> hulls". Confusing to the viewer.
e) Change current URL from ..\home\.. to ..\home9\.. to see how "nationalities" looked in the old version. I much, much, much prefer this way.

I tried using PluginCategory for the same purpose, but I could not get the desired results. Indeed, I'm not even certain I get the results that should be expected. Based on my understanding of the parameters, I would expect the categories AND sub-categories to be displayed, and the results split when the category changes. That does not happen. You can see that here:
http://www.hrsms.org/home/Models

{category id="4" types="wiki" sort="name_asc" split="y" sub="y" showdescription="y" showname="y" showtype="n" one="y" showlinks="y" categoryshowlink="y" maxRecords="1000" showTitle="n"}

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
