GLobal navigation

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
All my sub-sites are using the global navigation bar. The global navigation displays. 2 levels for some sites. For one of my sites, I am able to view the global navigation bar, but the links with 2 levels do not seem to come up. its working fine with all the other sites. I have also set the property to inherit from the master page, What could be the problem?

Hi All I need help for WSS Global Navigation problem. I have one Visual Studio Workflow.

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,

how to hide root site node in top/global navigation in sharepoint 2010

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?

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 navigation Headings don't display in Global Nav.


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. 


Show SubSites as Drop Down in Global Navigation


I am migrating my SharePoint 2007 site to SharePoint 2010. I have recreated all the sites and subsites for my site. I'm having trouble getting the global navigation to show the sites as a drop down like I had in SharePoint 2007. My SharePoint navigation shows the link to the top level site (my home page), and tabs for each of the subsites. Some of those subsites have subsites as well, and it's these that I want to have show up in a drop down. I have tried customizing the master page but cannot seem to get the right combination to get it working.

I updated the SharePoint:AspMenu attributes to use StaticDisplayLevels="2" and MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="3". I've tried lots of other combinations, but I'm not getting the drop down menus showing the subsites. My SharePoint 2007 master page has StaticDisplayLevels="2" and MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="1", which also is not working in SharePoint 2010.

How do I get my drop downs to work?

Is it possible to display Global Navigation on standalone Page?


I've created .aspx page that is not uses masterpage. Can i display Global Navigation there?

All my attempts to add GN has now effect :(

Remove subsite names from global navigation (top) menu


I'm fairly new to SharePoint 2010 so don't take this as a more difficult question than it probably is.  The way I'm organizing my site is to hide current navigation (left menu) and have only the global navigation (top menu) with drop downs.  The only active links that I am showing are links to lists within my subsites.  I don't want users to be able to click on subsite links that seem to appear automatically in my top navigation.

I understand that I can turn off "show subsites" in Site Settings --> Navigation, but even with these boxes not checked, I still get links to my subsites showing up in the global navigation (top) menu. 

Ideally I just want the drop down menus and their links to to show, not the subsite names which I can't seem to turn off.  Any assistance is appreciated!




Global navigation will not save absolute URL



I have a site collection on SharePoint 2007 that will not save a URL if I enter a local site as an absolute link.  SharePoint continuously changes the link to a relative link as long as the site is a local site.  I DO NOT want SharePoint to automatically change the link for me though.  The top level of this site gets content deployed to other sites around the globe daily.  So in this case when someone clicks the link I want the user to be directed to the corporate site, not to a relative link which doesn't exist on the destination.  In other words, the link is broken once it gets content deployed.  The relative link works fine on the corporate (main) site; it is all of the global sites that have problems with a broken link after content deployment runs.  As many problems that I have had with content deployment though, this is not a content deployment problem.  It is a matter of how SharePoint saves the link.

Most of our links, even to the corporate site, were entered as absolute links.  This worked fine a few months ago.  However, in December I installed the October CU (just a few days before December CU was released).  I think this is what broke it, and I just didn't realize it until now because we have not had a need to add links since then.

Global Exception Handling with ASP.NET

After your global exception handler has done its work, you'll want to redirect the users of your website to a friendly page that tells them that something has gone wrong, and then provide them with customer support information as well as a link back to your web application's home page.
