Navigation Question

  Asked By: Elvis    Date: Jul 11    Category: MOSS    Views: 758

I have an internet presence site that i am working on within Sharepoint 2007. After much help from the group here, i have finally figured out master pages. Just a question for my curiosity regarding navigation. Looking at the TopNavFlyOut.master in the _catalogs _master pages directory (using Sharepoint Designer). For the navigation bar the data source is Sitemapdatasource1. where is this file located? Can it be modified? Would VS2005 be better for working with this file? What format is the file in?

The Data source being used cannot be modified as such. Depending on what you want to do you can simply change the data source to be an XmlDataSource. If you use SPD and add an AspNetMenu control you can associate it with any number of data sources. Remember also you can programmatically add links to the navigation. I have a couple of posts at my blog about it.

I have a portal site  with several team sites under the main page. Each
team site has several document libraries. When I look at the "edit
navigation page" for the team sites, it says to show subsites and show
pages, the top nav bar says to display the navigation  of the parent
site and the left side nav bar says to "display the current site, the
navigation items below the current site, and the current site's
siblings". In the box below that it shows the names of the various
document libraries.

But when I look at the home page of the team site, all I see on the left
nav bar is a link for "documents". It goes to the document library list
page. But shouldn't I see the individual libraries as they are listed
in the edit navigation page? This occurs aross all of the team sites
throughout the entire farm. Is this a SharePoint problem or did we set
something up wrong? Is there a way to make these document library names
show up in the navigation for the home page of the each team site?

I forgot to mention that under the individual settings for each library,
the option to show on the Quick Launch Bar is also selected.

Did you enable Tree View?
Site Actions/Site Settings
In the Look and Feel column, click Tree view
Select the Enable Tree View check box, and then click OK.
If you want to display only tree view navigation, clear the Enable Quick Launch
check box. If both the Quick Launch and tree view navigation  are enabled, the
tree view navigation will appear underneath the Quick Launch.
