I'm looking for documentation about the new Router arrived in Joomla 3.8/4.0. I already spend some time to figure out how to leverage this new implementation approach to my component and stumbled upon some difficulties.
My main questions are:
- does the router support nested views without a parent view?
- how to implement a view with multiple parent views?
- are the build URLs supposed to avoid duplicated content?
- is there any good dev documentation about the new Routing System?
For 1. I already filed Joomla 3.8 // New Router & Nested View
For 2. I have an item view which can be the child view of a category view or another view. Links to an item don't use the correct ItemId. Maybe this is related to 3.
For 3. I have several menu items which can show the same item. One menu item links to the root category, another to a subcategory. While browsing, I would like to stay within the current menu item. But if I jump from the root menu item to the subcategory, I follow the link to the other menu item.
