#20747 closed New feature (fixed)

Djangoproject site 'Documentation' menu item does not respect version.

Reported by: andy.cottrell@… Owned by: nobody
Component: * Version:
Severity: Normal Keywords: menu version documentation
Cc: bmispelon Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: yes


Having selected an older version of Django documentation (say 1.4) all page navigation links related to that version. Unless I select "Documentation" on the main menu, in which case it silently switches me to the latest version.

If I am being alert, I will notice the change displayed on ul#doc-versions. But I am often not alert.....
It feels to me that changing versions should ideally be an explicit choice by me.

Can this main menu item be made aware of which version I am navigating in?
