Ok, it's been over a decade since I've worked with Drupal (primary use was for a personal blogging platform, with a bit of extra extensibility and a well developed plugin ecosystem). Sadly, most of my knowledge has escaped me, so I'm starting completely from scratch knowledge wise, and I don't know where to start.
I'm going to use Drupal as the platform to deliver an intranet for a small company I work for.
In order to make navigation as simple as possible, and without having to worry about themes and menus constantly - I'd like to have pages where it displays an automatically generated 'table of contents' for all the documents or items on one or more levels below it.
I intend to structure and alias the content with a URL alias similar to directories in a file system, for example:
⌊_ Search Advertising
⌊_ Product Maintenance
⌊_ Accounting and Finance
and so on
On the homepage, I would like to have a content block or something appropriate in the body, which displays only the L1 directories (i.e. Marketing, Administration), and that is then linked to their relevant pages (i.e. domain.com/marketing, domain.com/administration).
From there, the home pages for these L1 areas have an index that traverses and lists everything automatically at L2, L3 and so on
I hope what i'm trying to achieve has made sense, and appreciate all and any help to point me in the right direction for achieving this.
