Wiki Page Hierarchy and Breadcrumbs
The ability to relate wiki pages in a parent/child fashion can be very useful. Many times wiki pages are implicitly
linked by simply using wiki links but to create backlinks or breadcrumbs you have to manually add all of the wiki links.
If pages could be explicitly linked then backlinks could be added to the page automatically. In addition, a special
tag could render a table of the child pages of any given page.
I will add a patch for all of this functionality in "Patches". See the attached screenshots for examples.

I would really like this feature also.
I am currently having some users build a set of custom help screens for an application. This app. is of course, being tracked has a project. This proposed feature will allow us to relate the help screens and not deal with the other wika pages that are in the project supporting the help desk and developers. All of the help screens would be in the proposed parent /child relationship.

- multiply linked pages (i.e. multiple ways to get to PageX) would have proper trail
- it-just-works, easier than having to maintain links explicitly
- passing URL to someone to access directly wouldn't have any breadcrumb history

Functionality added in r1698.
Implementation is different from patch #243 but it's database compatible (column parent_id added to wiki_pages table) so people how have applied this patch can safely use the mainline implementation instead.
Parent page assignment is done on the Rename screen.
Holy crud yes! Thank you! That is awesome! I cannot wait for 0.8 now! You rock!

why you don't upgrade to the latest version. the patch is already included there
I'd like to very much and will do that later, but at the moment I have difficulties with installation of Rails 2.1 + it requires time for setup etc. which i don't have now..
But need to put alot of info to wiki now (without this function it is a pain to write down breadcrumbs manually).
