I have created a webtemplate that I use to provision a sitecollection site which works fine but when I try to add an Heading or link to the Global Navigation through UI it's not working correctly: somehow the links gets removed from the Global Navigation.

Does anyone ever experienced this behavior? What could I have done wrong? is this a know issue/bug?

  • Did you create the site template through code or just reused an existing site template ?

I solved the problem so I am leaving here the solution that worked for me. In the onet.xml file there is line


I have replaced it with the following one

    <NavBar Name="SharePoint Top Navbar" ID="1002"></NavBar>

Now its working.
