We recently upgraded from WSS 3.0 to MOSS 2007. One of the features I was most looking forward to was inheritence of the Quick Launch menu. Unfortunately, this feature does not seem to work as expected although I cannot confirm that maybe I'm just not getting
Within the target subsite, I verified that Quick Launch was enabled (it previously was turned off) and then accessed Navigation verifying that Current Navigation was set to "Display the same navigation items as the parent site". The result of this
is an empty Quick Launch menu - it doesn't show anything except the Recycle Bin and View All Content. The parent has a Quick Launch menu which I created manually. If I change Current Navigation to either "Display only the navigation items below the
current site" or "Display the current site, the navigation items below the current site, and the current site's siblings " it seems to work as expected although not how I want obviously. It almost as if it thinks the parent Quick Launch menu is empty.
What am I missing here? What I want to be able to do is go to my top-level site and manually create the Quick Launch menu I want (which I have done) and then use inheritence within each subsite to simply pull it down. I was under the impression that's
how it was supposed to work.
