Page Collections and Sequence Boxes

By JSVJSV

Description

This provides code for a 'sequence box', which shows that a page is part of a sequence or collection, allows navigation to any page in the sequence, and provides Previous and Next links. You would use this, for example, if you had a collection of pages that described different elements in the collection, e.g. 'Animals' is the sequence, and 'dog', 'cat', 'mouse', 'chicken' are the pages in the sequence (Animals would also have a page to describe the sequence).

Unfortunately, you'll have to provide the sequence yourself on all pages. Suggestion: perhaps someone could write a module to do this automatically from a pre-ordered sequence, designed in a sequence editor?
