    I'm working from the trial/community version (prior to upgrading) and am having troubles setting up a top/horizontal navigation bar that will feed into a left hand navigation bar with 'child links' - similar to how this sitefinity.com page is set up; when clicking on 'Support' from the top/horizontal nav bar, the left hand nav bar populates with the sub-pages. 

    In addition - I'd like to include static links under the left hand sub/child links i.e. Events, News, Contact Us, How to Buy, etc. - that would list and be visible on every page of the site. 

    I'm sure there's an easy solution, but haven't found it in searching the forums or through the user guide. 

    Any thoughts?

    You're right, there actually is a pretty easy way to achieve this:
    • On your top navigation, use a Site Tabstrip and set the ShowOnlyFirstLevel property to True (I think it's the default setting)
    • Then, for your sub-navigation, use another nav control (like Site Menu or Site Panelbar) and set the StartingNodeOffset property to 1.

    For the static links, just use something like a link list (i.e. the one from the last webinar) and make it integrate into the existing navigation using CSS.

    Cheers, Chris

    Hi Chris,
    OK - I'm definitely a beginner so thanks for you assistance on this.  The changes you provided are updated on/from the page 'Template', correct?  Thanks again for your help,
    Andy

    They are done wherever you have your navigation controls. Usually, that would be in the template - so yes.

    Cheers, Chris

    Hi,

    You can add your controls directly to the page or hardcoding them to your master page.

    Kind regards,
