Top Link Bar in 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using 2007 and one of our 'Power users' while working on a sub-site > site actions > site settings > Top Link Bar >, the user inadvertently clicked on the 'Use Links from Parent ' link. Now the other sub-site are gone from the Top Tabs. The sub-sites are still in the 'Quick Luanch'. Can I recover the links to the Top Tabs?

    Hope someone can help,

  • Hi,

    The top links added before will be deleted automatically along with when the Inheritance broken when you click the “Use Links from Parent”. So you may need to add them back manually follow these steps:

    1.       Go back to the Top Link Bar in Site Settings in this sub-site, click Stop Inheriting Links.

    2.       Then still in this page, click New Link.

    3.       In New Link page, type the address of site which you want to add to top tabs, and type a description. Click OK. (Notice that description will show on top tabs, so it’s better to make it the same as the site name for recognition)

    4.       If you want to add more, just repeat step 2 and 3.

    5.       Via this way, you can add whatever sites to another site’s top tabs.

    Please have a try. I look forward to your reply.
