The navigation is a "reserved" area in the left column for listing pages within the subsite. A page does not have to be included in the navigation; but to have a topic listed in the navigation, it must be a page in our CMS and must be marked for inclusion.
The top item in the Navigation is the title of the Index page for the Subsite.
A page that has a plus sign next to it indicates a Child site Index page and clicking the plus sign will reveal the pages contained within that Child site that have been marked to include in the navigation.
Clicking the Child site Index page will take you to that site and display only its own navigation. Users click the breadcrumbs to return to the main Subsite.
To include a page in the navigation, go to "Properties" and choose "Custom."
Check the box next to "Add to subsite navigation"
Enter a priority based on the rank top to bottom (1-100).
Leaving the default of 50 for all pages will produce an alphabetical list.
Keep your navigation items to a minimum.
Use Child sites to group like pages.
It is possible to include a page in the navigation that redirects to a page in a different subsite or to a page on a website outside our domain (external URL).
Create a new page as you normally would using a simple URL and the Title that you would like to see displayed in your navigation.
In the Standard Properties area of the page, go to the bottom of the screen and check the Expiration Date calendar.
Click the calendar icon and click on today's date.
Click the drop-down arrow by Action.
Select "Redirect to another page/url."
If the redirect is to go to a URL outside of CommonSpot, copy and paste it to the Redirect URL: field.
If the redirect is to go to a page inside CommonSpot, use the Choose button.
Select the page (highlight it), then click "Use Highlighted Page" in the lower right corner.
Save the Standard Properties
Activate the page (top right) so it appears in the navigation.
