What it reminds me of is "Choose Your Own Adventure" Books. I think
that's as good a metaphor as any for describing what it does.
I can also see using this for setting up a series of instructions that
vary based on your situation, but for which certain steps are common
to different situations. Imagine a site with instructions for
replacing parts of a computer. The "open the case" step will pretty
much always be there, but "remove the the hard drive" only for certain
projects. With Trails you only have to write the "open the case" step
once and include it in different trails.
Am I understanding Trails correctly? :)
P.S. -- I don't think this topic is "OT" at all. This is a
significant WP plugin.
