Publishing Portal navigation Headings don't display in Global Nav.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am having a problem displaying a 'Heading' on the Global Navigation bar, that has been manually added to the 'Navigation Editing & Sorting' section of a publishing portal sub site.

If I create a new page in the sub site it automatically appears on the Global navigation bar however when I manually enter a Heading with or without a link underneath, it won't display at all. Sites and Pages all work, it's just Headings that won't display.

I am thinking it has something to do with the default masterpage and default navigation provider.

Hoping somebody knows a workaround without having to create my own masterpage of hack the default one with SharePoint designer.

Global Navigation across Site Collections

MOSS 2007 Global Navigation across Site Collections I have couple of questions. a) Is there an easy way to share a global navigation between site collections? b) Portal has the navigation tabs (tab1..n). User doesn't have access to all the tabs, may have access to one or more tabs. Each tab represents a site collection. Is there a way to display the only tabs to which the users have access? If we can develop using SDK, please provide some hints.   Thanks,

Top Global Navigation across site collections(?)

Hi, My understanding at the conference was that SharePoint 2010 closed the gap in navigation in that 2010 could see across site collections thus allowing for you to have visibility of those site collections in your global navigation.  However, I can't seem to locate this feature. Does anyone know how you can configure your global navigation to span across site collections? Thank you for your comments, Tim

Global Navigation dropdowns not working in IE7


I have done a lot of small (insignificant) javascript customizations to my master page, and I have done these customizations to other pages and had complete functionality.  My site's top navigation bar (global navigation) is not working properly in IE7.  The dropdown menus do not drop down.  


Has anybody worked through a similar experience?

Publishing subsite "Enable left navigation"

Any help will be appreciated.

Global navigation and partial views


I guess this is mostly a theory question since I'm very new to MVC.  If you have a global navigation tree, Countries --> States --> Cities for example, how do you correctly implement this in MVC2?  In my example, the view model for States does not contain Countries and the tree would break as it needs the Countries list to build the tree.

It sounds like this should be easy, but it doesn't sound right to include the entire model for a single State or City view.

Publishing Portal Missing Team Site Template



I created a new site collection and set the root site as a publishing portal.  I then went into "manage site features" under "Site Actions" and activated the "Team Collaboration Lists" feature.  However I cannot find the "Team Site" template when I try to create a new site.  Is there a feature I'm missing? 



How to securely display PDF files on a portal page


Hi guys,

I need a control that display a PDF file from MOSS library so that user can't get a copy of it. I perfectlly understand that's not possible to completely save document from copying, I just want to make it as hard for user as possible.

So far I embedded a PDF file into user control as described there:


But I still have 2 major propblems:

1) displayed PDF file's saved at Temporary Internet Files after each page download

(Response.Cache.SetCacheability (HttpCacheability.NoCache) doesn't help)


2)if page is opened as a Source file then a link to a PDF is clearly visible inside UserControl code.


Is there a chance to avoid any of these issues? Or may be you have any other ideas?
