I'm trying to use the basic, default navigation widget straight out of the box for a super simple menu, but I can't figure out how to make it behave like I need.
My site has page structure with 2 top level pages, "Help" and "Information", each having 3-4 sub pages. If I drop in a new navigation widget, by default it has "Top-level Pages" selected and shows 2 items in the menu: Help and Information, each with an arrow for flyouts with the sub pages.
What I want is to be able to have 2 navigation widgets, each showing only 1 of those items with the same flyouts they have now. This will allow me to do lots of neat things like have one at the top left and the other at the top right, or move them around the page.
It seems like I should be able drop in 2 navigation widgets, each set to "All pages under a particular page", but when I do that it no longer collapses the menus, even when telling it to include the parent. I also tried a custom selection of pages, but again that flattens the entire thing regardless of any structures. I need to be able to keep all of the structures, grouping, flyouts, but only show specific top level items instead of everything.
How can I get a subset of the top-level menu, but with all of the normal grouping/flyouts??
Thanks for the response! Your solution would change all of the urls though right? While I know we could redirect all of the old urls, that just causes extra slowness and confusion when we have a bunch of marketing materials and inbound links already existing. It also makes all link checkers respond that the links are inaccurate and can confuse search engines.
Is there an option to do the same thing with either customizing the nav widget template or by extending the control in code so that we can leave the pages at the top level where they belong instead of adding a redundant extra one-to-one grouping tier?
Thank you Svetoslav.
That is what I thought but there must be something wrong with our Feather Navigation widget then because when I hit edit it goes right to the advanced view.
Thank you very much for you prompt reply. We have figure out the problem and it is working correctly now.
