As I’ve read a lot of posts in the forum, there where requests for including multilevel navigation for Textpattern. As I’ve observed such requests first appeared in 2005, 2006. It’s interesting, when Textpattern will become a real CMS, not stay only for blog option?
I think many users need multilevel navigation on their site. And the lack of such a functionality in Textpattern still hurts.
When I say “multilevel navigation” I actually refer to such an adress
How difficult is to implement such a thing in Textpattern?
Or should I try to find another CMS which offers multilevel construction?

Personally I’d prefer to develop a site structure that doesn’t require complete novels for URLs ;)
Though I agree Textpattern can’t be considered an “only blog CMS” (actually I never used it as a blog software),
multilevel navigation is a feature I always missed.
Sure, some sort of fake 2-level-navigation using section>category is achievable but it’s a mess from a usability point of view: you should try having to deal with non technical users and having to warn them constantly “in this section use only this category as a sub section” and such things…
that’s why some years ago I decided to use only sections while trying to resemble sub level navigation placing ‘fake’ breadcrumb navigation in every page and ignoring the non-consequent representation in urls.
All in all this has proven to be a viable solution for me, nonetheless a multi level nav would be more than desiderable.

I didn’t mean that Textpattern can’t be used in different ways, not only as a bloging tool. I use Textpattern as a CMS for my site. It’s a wonderfull CMS! But is has some lacks that are very important for me. That is the fact.
So how dificult is to build a solution for this?
It’s not an easy thing to change, but it’s definitely on the TODO list (if possible, before crockery).
that’s great. I must admit lately you’re giving us lots of wonderful news!
Don’t read too much into this though. The fact that it’s on the TODO list, doesn’t imply that it will be in 4.0.7 or even 4.0.x.
