I recently seen on a portal site where the left navigation was grouped by 5 different categories.

Sales link 1 link 2

Support link 1 link 2 link 3 link 4 link 5 1 - 5 >

If you notice there are other links under support and pagination is setup for that. How can I do the same? add pagination for left navigation.

I don't believe there is any way out of the box to achieve this. I would handle this with custom JavaScript.

Use the SharePoint navigation settings to setup the links as you want them using headings to group items. Then load your custom JS to manipulate which navigation children are currently visible and which are hidden.

I have not done this exact thing you are asking about but have implemented something similar where all children are hidden using JS. They are then made visible when a parent link is clicked.

I would be happy to post a snippet if it would help but not sure how much detail you want.

  • Would fly out menus solve this? If so it is pretty easy to do no JS needed (just need to change a value in the masterpage). You could also hide them based on audience I think.

  • In my understanding, I didn't think fly outs would solve this question? I just mentioned my example to explain how one might customize the navigation using JS.
