#20747 closed New feature (fixed)

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

Description

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?
