    Maybe I"m missing something obvious, but is there a way to get the horizontal navigation with tabs bar to show the top level page that you've clicked on.

    For instance I have,

    why work with us
    resources
    contacts
      - bios
      - contact form

    I click on resources, the resources page opens. If I click on contacts, it stays on the resources page until I click on bios or contact form. I would like it to open contact form.

    Hello Amanda Shafer,

    The behavior you are describing is not typical for the navigation widget. Can you please give me login credentials to the instance of Sitefinity where this problem reproduces, so that I can inspect this issue further? If that's not possible, please send me a zipped copy of your project. Generally a similar issue was reported by a client last week and simply deleting and replacing the navigation control on the layout template for his pages  fixed the issue - you can try this as well.

    Hi Boyan,
    Thank you for looking into this issue for me. I tried to delete the object, re-add it. I also tried putting it on the page instead of the template, but to no avail.

    This instance is still on our development server so I will have to send you a copy of the project. Do you need the database as well? I will open a ticket for this issue.

    Thanks!
    - Amanda

    Hi Amanda,

    Thank you for getting back to me. Yes, I will need the DB as well, so you'd better open a support ticket for this issue. If the files are too large, maybe you can upload them on a shared hosting/give me an ftp access, so that I can examine this issue further.

    Hello Amanda,

    The issue turned out to be a bug in the horizontal navigation with tabs. I have replied to you in the support thread that you have opened. For your convenience I'm pasting below the reply:

    " I inspected your project and successfully reproduced the issue. There seems to be a problem with links to group pages not being resolved properly when using Horizontal navigation with Tabs. I have logged this as a bug in our system and we'll be working on fixing it. You can track the bug progress in PITS, it will be available on this public URL"

    Hi Amanda Shafer,

    Thank you for using our services. I have just tested this scenario with Sitefinity 4.1 Service Pack1 and the described behavior that we found out in the beginning of this conversation does not occur anymore - now the links to group pages resolve properly if the page has any child pages, if not, it just does not get shown in Navigation. Please try upgrading your project to our latest version and inform me if any of the issues persist. It was a pleasure for me to assist you.

    Hello,

    Can you share with me the page structure (I suppose you have group page with several child pages)?
    GroupPage
    -child1
    -child2

    In Sitefinity 4.4 horizontal with tabs navigation option will display GroupPage on top level and depending on the setting how to open pages (mouse over, click) 
    Click->Clicking the group page will expand the child nodes, but the url will not be changes because the click action is not redirecting, but expanding a tab in this case

    Mouse Over->clicking the group page will change the url to grouppage/child1 as all group pages navigate to the first child page and display the contents of the first child page.
