This is a talk page for improving WikiTrails.
. . . at any time, when one of these items is in view, the other can be instantly recalled merely by tapping a button below the corresponding code space. Moreover, when numerous items have been thus joined together to form a trail, they can be reviewed in turn, rapidly or slowly . . . . It is exactly as though the physical items had been gathered together to form a new book. It is more than this, for any item can be joined into numerous trails.
Can the index page be excluded altogether from the trail?
That would make it possible to use lists thousands long, since the user would never be caught by a slow-loading index page while using the trail markup. Currently, I use a portal page instead of the index page as the starting-ending point, and place the index url in the center of the list so that it can be avoided until that point is reached. I tried htaccess, but it won't work with the complications presented by pmwiki.php serving the pages.
How can the trail be made to start at (or from) the "parent page"?
That is the first trail markup should be visible on the "parent page". In the example below the next and prev pages should show as (arbitrarily) the first and last pages on the trail (excluding any loop entry).
Why can I not get the Path WikiTrail ^|[[TrailIndexPage]]|^ to function as expected?

Why isn't simply the trail itself a
I think there is no good reason. Layout should be a issue of CSS and only CSS. These wrapping containers (without any CSS class and - in addition - with hard coded style attribute - uuhha) only make it hard to change a tails design.
It is wrapped in
