Top Navigation bar out of date. RRS feed

  • Question

  • MOSS 2007:

    I've got an issue where the top navigation bar in Sharepoint top navigation bar is out of date with the actual site structure. For example a number of sites have now become subsites of others, but they still appear as top level sites. 

    Using Site navigation settings there appears to be no way to update, or delete old site links so I tried to Hide, but Sharepoint seems to be ignoring me! 

    Any ideas please!?

     

    Cheers

    Russ

  • Did you customize anything in master page?

  • Not me personally, how best can I tell if it has been modified by others?

  • what site map provider do you use? is it OTB provider or custom one? OTB providers use caching, so try to make iisreset and see will it be updated or not. If it is custom provider - you need to check its code in order to understand why it works like this.

  • in Sharepoint you can create navigation heading manually (in Site settings > Navigation). Did you use automatically built navigation or you have also manual headings? May be outdated links were just created manually before.

  • Under Site Settings > Navigation, the Global Navigation section at the top has a number of Manually created 'Headings' via Add Heading... Not linking to any URLs, just as a logical container to help group the site links.

    The sites were then manually moved to the logical containers.

    Then one on the sites in this heading moved to a sub site of another, but now I have both visable and the 'old' link, although still working, needs to be removed ot at least hidden.

    The hidden setting gets removed everytime I hit OK!

    Original Setup

    Global Navigation

    ---->Heading1

    -----------> Site1

    -----------> Site2

    Desired Setup ( site2 moved under site1)

    Global Navigation

    ---->Heading1

    -----------> Site1

    ---------------------> Site2

    What I've now got in Navigation

    Global Navigation

    ---->Heading1

    -----------> Site1

    ---------------------> Site2

    -----------> Site2 ( should ideally disappear, or at least be able to hide )
