When creating a Site Definition in Visual Studio, how do I make sure that the new site created from this definition will display the same global navigation as the parent web in SharePoint 2010?


You can control this with the publishing navigation feature. Take a look at the InheritGlobalNavigation key.

 <Feature ID="541F5F57-C847-4e16-B59A-B31E90E6F9EA">
      <Properties xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
      <Property Key="InheritGlobalNavigation" Value="true"/>
      <Property Key="ShowSiblings" Value="true"/>
      <Property Key="IncludeSubSites" Value="true"/>

  • is this placed in the onet.xml? and is the id the feature GUID? – Nicholas King Jul 25 '12 at 13:36
