|Summary||0007573: add link elements to head of each page|
|Description||HTML allows for <link> elements in the header to indicate relationships from a page to several other pages. A useful way to use this is for the "previous" and "next" links to be expressed in the head (as well as via <a> links in the body of course).|
Please add something to the head of relevant pages that puts <link> elements in.
|Additional Information||Example <link>s|
<link href="main_page.php" rel="Top" />
<link href="view_all_bug_page.php" rel="up" />
<link href="bug_view_page.php?bug_id=1234" rel="prev" />
<link href="bug_view_page.php?bug_id=1232" rel="next" />

|In Firefox, the <link> elements are not visible out of the box. The Link Widgets addon is needed to access them. See https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2933/ [^]|
I don't know that linking to the next or previous issue, numerically, is useful at all. Perhaps linking to the next and previous issues *in the current list of issues* would be useful. But if we add <link> tags for those, I would also want <a href> tags added somewhere in the page. There's no point only making <link> tags, since I don't know of any mainstream browser that makes use of those.
Adding <link> tags for issues related to the current one could be interesting.
I quite agree there's not much point having numerical chaining of issues that differs from what the << >> buttons do.
Because we already have << and >> links for the chain of issues in the current view, these are the links I had in mind in making my suggestion.
The page layout is slightly different from one page to the next. Therefore, the << >> buttons move slightly, so clicking quickly through them takes a bit more attention - so being a bit more distracting. Having <link> equivalents for these two buttons gains the benefit for users of having buttons in one place on the UI as they step through their list of issues.
|I forgot we already have << and >> links on the page. In light of that, adding correspending <link> elements makes sense.|
I have attached a patch for Mantis 1.2.3.
Tested in Mantis 1.2.1 using Seamonkey 2.0.10 and Firefox 3.6.12 + Site navigation bar 2.0.3.
|Great idea. Thanks for the patch too. I've queued this up for 1.3.x.|
|Removed assignment. dhx will not contribute to this issue in near future.|
