The Top Navigation component should display the contents of the menu defined in the Navigation settings. However, I've created several pages (and folders) in my Publishing site which are not appearing in the Top Navigation. The Top Navigation component is empty, providing the ability to add links.

Here are my Navigation settings: enter image description here

I have one site collection with a top-level site; no sub-sites. I expected that when I created pages or folders in the page library that they would appear and display.

What am I missing? (And will the folders display in the navigation?)

The navigation options which you have set tries to pulls the items from managed metadata term sets.

Change the Global and Current Navigation settings as below to display the pages as navigation items. enter image description here

The folders will not be displayed as navigation items. But you can still add the folders manually and move the pages accordingly under the same navigation settings. enter image description here
