SharePoint 2010: How to Configure the Left Navigation

Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 is a combined platform that is meticulously united with Microsoft Office and Active Directory. It helps secured association by allowing users to regulate the permissions on content so that it can be shared and protected as per user preference. Additionally, it permits users to monitor, audit and control the content. This can be located into an extremely organized site with information policies that conclude how and when to change or dispose it based on content lifespan. In turn, content can also be located into a large unstructured area of association or content room, where search functions permit users to find documents.

Links for navigation which is known as navigation item appear in both the top link bar and on the left side of pages on the Quick Launch. If you are working on a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 site on which the publishing features are permitted, you can use the Site Navigation Settings page to configure which navigation items appear, under what headings, and in what order. To handle navigation in SharePoint 2010, you must have at least the permissions achieved by being added to the default Designers SharePoint group for the site. You have the needed permission to configure navigation for your site if Site Settings is an option on the Site actions menu and on the Sites Settings page you see the Navigation command under Look and Feel. You can also see the Quick Launch and Top link bar commands under Look and Feel as a substitute of Navigation. To land onto the Site Navigation Settings page, you can follow one of the commands mentioned below:

  1. Click on Site Settings located under the Site Actions menu.
  2. Point to Site Settings and then click on’ Modify All Site Settings’ once you land onto ‘On the Site Actions menu’.
  3. Click on Navigation under the’ Look and Feel column’.

If you configure your site to show sub sites and pages, but your site is set up to show the global navigation for its parent site, you will not be able to view the links to these sub sites and pages. It will not be possible until the navigation for the parent site is also configured to display sub sites and pages. In addition, if you are configuring navigation for a top-level site, and you want pages or sub sites underneath the sub sites of the top-level site to appear on drop-down menus from the top link bar, you need to configure the top level site to show sub sites and pages. Also, you need to configure the specific sub sites to display their sub sites and pages.
