Navigation bar in personal dashboard SPS 2001

  Asked By: Christina    Date: Aug 31    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 825

I seem to have a problem with the navigation bar when I create a
personal dashboard. I am using the Sharepoint Portal 2001 and when i
create a personal dashboard using the "create a personal dashboard"
option under the "Management" Tab, the navigation bar from the main
dashboard(home|search|categories| etc.) is not available under this
dashboard.
Is there any way to get the main dashbaord here or even edit the
navigation bar and add a link to the home?

Yes, it is supposed to work this way.
The navigation  bar on the main portal are subdashboards.

To include these in your personal  dashboards I think you can copy them from
the main portal to your newly created personal dashboard, or create new
subdashboards and edit the contect.

I didn't find a way to get the main navigation  bar shown on a
personal dashboard  yet. Seems to be a little bit more tricky :)
But you can add a new Web Part to your personal  dashboard with
this bit of code here (or something similar):

<html>
<head><title>HOME</title></head>
<body>
<a href="http://PortalServer/Portal/">HOME</a>
</body>
</html>

At least, you will find your way back HOME.

Doing it this way causes that every dashboard  has to be changed
if you, e.i., change the servername.
Except you define a master webpart for this.

I think an easier way to achieve this is to bind such a link
to the dashlogo.

You'll have to change the db_view.xsl (IE5.5+) and the dbview.xsl.
But with this changes you'll lose support.
(I forgot to mention it in my last mail, sorry.)

That's true.....in this case.
What I meant was that every changes made to your server structure
probibly causes changes to the link and then you'll have to change
hundreds of webparts except you've defined a master webpart.

And another advantage is that the users don't have to waste 'their'
dahsboard space.

<a href="http://PortalServer/Portal/">HOME</a>
So, how would you manage it to bind this link to the dashlogo?

Anyhow, instead of using the PortalServerName you could use
the IP address of the server.
