Relative Path Problems..

  Asked By: Ami    Date: Jan 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 16024

I have been trying to update my site templates by using relative path
urls as part of the site navigation. However, I have come across an
interesting problem. As soon as I use a relative path, though
SharePoint initially recognizes the address, and I can save the new
link, when SharePoint tries to update the xml file, it ends up
overwriting and all the navigation is empty.
Here is what I do:
- Go to site actions, site settings, navigation.
- The navigational settings: Show subsites, sort auto, sort by title
in ascending order, display the same navigation as the parent site,
display the current site, the navigation itesm below the current site,
and the current site's siblings.
- I can add a link or heading as normal. For example, if the full
http is http://emp-
then I can create a link or header using /3rdparty/KnowledgeCenters/
Template/Lists/Announcements/AllItems.aspx without a problem. The
announcements link is there successfully and it appears on the page
- Here comes the problem: Now, I will add another link, and use a
relative path.
- SharePoint lets me save the changes. Click OK. No errors are
- When returning to the homepage, there is no longer any
links for this site (parent sites remain).
- If you return to site settings, navigation, you will see none
of the
links I just created are present.
Has anyone else had this problem? If so, have you been able to use
relative paths within SharePoint? If so, how?
