I have a request for a client who has three level of navigation and would like to use the global navigation to set the navigation links in site site settings>navigation.(/_layouts/AreaNavigationSettings.aspx)

Is that doable?

Thanks in advance for your reply :) Will

  • 1st level navigation
    • 2nd level navigation
      • 3rd level navigation

so for the navigation we would have something like that:

  • Company (1st level navigation)

    • About us (2nd level navigation)

      • Contact us (3rd level navigation)

      • Team (3rd level navigation)


Atos, there are 2 different ways depending upon whether you want it dynamically-managed by SharePoint or created/managed by the Farm Administrator.

Dynamically-managed is by adjusting the Master Pages MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels tag.

The managed version, which adds your own custom links with as many levels as you want, but requires an administrator to change a custom XML file, solves this too.

Hope this helps.

  • that sounds like it could work for a custom navigation but in my case my client need to be able to change the navigation from Site Settings : Navigation Settings (_layouts/AreaNavigationSettings.aspx) – user1833 Dec 6 '10 at 15:17
