I have a site collection with some sites (Publishing theme).
I need to add some links to the top navigation bar and the quick launch by Powershell.

$web = Get-SPWeb "http://myurl"
$newLink = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Navigation.SPNavigationNode -ArgumentList  @("test", "http://www.google.com");  

I tried this code,it runs fine, but I can not see the new link.
If I try to add a new link from the UI, I can not see it in the $web.Navigation.TopNavigationBar object.
It is working with an other template (ex team site)

  • Maybe it is hidden by the Masterpage. Check the CSS for "ms-breadcrumb-top"

  • Thanks, but I can not see them in the object so I do not think that is just a visualization problem :/
