We are using O365/Sharepoint Online 2013.
We are using the structured navigation on our root site (https://sitename.sharepoint.com) and when we adjust our permission levels for users, pages and sub-sites, the navigation items automatically shows/hides regarding what permissions the user has.
We would like to have the same kind of navigation functionality in our search site (https://sitename.sharepoint.com/search) also, but somehow it does not work even when set up the same way as the root site. What's the problem? Am I missing something obvious?
EDIT: I tried to meddle with managed navigation also but it did not automatically hide/show the menu items either.
EDIT 2/Additional information: Our search site is the default search center so our search actions brings us to the search center and the URL is "https://sitename.sharepoint.com/search/Pages/results.aspx?k=[YourQuerystring]". Also we are using the left panel in the search center for the refiners.
That being said, our goal is to get the top navigation menu look and act the same way as our top navigation on our root site does. On our root site we have structured navigation that automatically hides and shows the menu items depending on the user's permissions.
We tried to create an identical top navigation menu on our search center site but somehow it shows every menu item to every user regardless of the permissions of the users. Permissions are still working because if a user clicks a menu item that should be hidden, he gets an error message saying it's restricted. So only the automatic hide/show function is not working in our search center top navigation menu.
I'm eternally grateful for any solutions regarding this matter!
