I've created a Global Navigation term set so I can pin this to multiple site collections.
All seemed to be going well, I added a new term with a Simple Link URL to the Global Navigation and it replicated to all the pinned site collections. The following day I had a bunch more urls to add to the Global Navigation having migrated in some new subsites on one of these site collections. However, when I add the Simple Link URL on the global nav term set, it converts this to a Friendly URL on all the pinned term sets, so giving "Site not Found".
Could this be that when I create the new term in the global nav, it adds this as a friendly URL by default and then replicated this to the pinned site collection term sets, before I had chance to click the Simple URL and add it? So it seems to fail to update the pinned terms with the change from Friendly to Simple.
If I go to the site collection term set and delete it, then re-pin it from the global, it works fine replicating the Simple URL. But I don't want to have to do this for every site collection, every time I add a new term to the global nav. Any clues what's going on here? Timer job maybe?
