There has been much interest and discussion about Content Managment Systems (the likes of Xoop, PostNuke, etc) and how to integrate them with Moodle. And there has also been much interest and discussion about the cookie-trail nav bar. May I propose an "Upper Nav Bar" as an improvement that may help both issues. Here are two screen shots, one showing my upper nav bar as normaly seen and one shot with the mouse over opening the menu.
It's connection to the cookie crumb might be distantly related, but perhaps the added level of navigation might be used to give some clarity to the purpose and operation of the cookie crumbs.
