I am working on a portal project that was a custom asp.net wcm/ecm portal and i will develop it in sharepoint from scratch.
In that custom portal there is a 5 level menu hierarchy. And only some levels have contents and some levels are only for building the hierarchy.
So in sharepoint point of view, i will build the same menu hierarchy bu creating sites and subsites at five level.
Firstly is this OK, and best practice?
And some levels has no content. Only the leaf level subsites has content, and the second level of subsites have contents as welcome pages.
So what to do when the user clicks and goes to the subsites that has no content?
I am planning to develop custom top navigation bar, and give the url as # to the sites with no content, or redirect the user to the related parent-parent site.
What are your thoughts.
