  • Thanks Asad. Now I am using metadata navigation for my site. But I have one problem now. My term sets are showing in different levels(level1,level2,level3), but I need only two levels and second level term set should be in column as in snapshot. Is I am missing something?

Try this links , This is brief intro to how the Top Navigation (also known as Global Navigation) functions Out of the Box. Note: I am not talking about an easy solution to creating a consistent Navigation between Site Collections




  • This is not what I want. Actually I did structural navigation and its same as vertical links. I want 1st level only vertical as well horizontal links (column level drop down menu). In advance thank you.

you can achive this using Manage MetaData and Navigation OOTB kindly Refer below Link this will help you get your result http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/15876.sharepoint-2013-navigation-using-managed-metadata.aspx


  • I tried with managed metadata but term set is not getting created. It shows this error: "Failed to create term set: A default managed metadata service connection hasn't been specified". For this I started managed metadata service application, but same output.

  • You need to associate your metadata application with the default application proxy group. Go to Central Admin > Application Management > Configure Service application associations. In the top right corner on the page, change the view to Service Applications. Click the "default" proxy group and check the box for your second Metadata application. Click OK and try again. and at the end reset IIS and Sharepoint Timer Service hope this will resolve issue
