Quick Launch Bar

  Asked By: Marlin    Date: Feb 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1028

I want to change the Quick Launch Bar for all WSS sites so that it
lists links alphabetically instead of first added on top. I know that
with a content editor web part I could address it on a site by site
basis, but general feedback from my users (we have A LOT of engineers)
shows a preference for alphabetical listing. I am fine with the order
of the headings (Documents, Pictures, Lists, etc) but the order of the
links under the headings I would like to have from a-z alphabetical.

I simply don't know what I need to change for this--I assume it is in
the STS folder in the Templates folder in the 60 Hive, and I have a
test environment where I have tried to make a tweak or two with no
success.

The Quick Launch bar  is a control. To change  its behavior you’ll probably have to write your own.

your article was very informative and I appreciate the
link. Since the quick  launch is a control, is it still possible to use
content  editor web  part to modify the way the links  are displayed?
That way I could quickly change  the pages of those wheels that are
squeaking the loudest. They don't seem to take too kindly to the
suggestion that they remove all libraries & lists  from the bar  and
then add them back in the order  they wish to see them . . .

You can use a hidden CEWP on the page with some JavaScript to modify the
menu.

While removing the links  and readding them in the desired order  seems
cumbersome, it can actually be done relatively quickly... it seems to be
one of those things that take less time to do than to complain about to
you. Hopefully your users  will soften up a bit.
