SharePoint navigation design issue

  • SharePoint navigation design issue George2

    I am using SharePoint Server 2007 x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64. I have setup a site with template publishing portal. I have grant anonymous access to all the site.

    I want to design a two layered navigation solution for the site. And I want to know if there is any advice or document for me to follow-up in order to setup the navigation solution.

    In more details, my requirement is:

    1. In the top global navigation area, I want to display top categories (car, computer and book)

    2. on the left navigation area, I want to display the sub-category for the selected top category from top global navigation area, for example, if computer is selected, I want to display sub-category on left navigation area, like laptop/server/netbook

    3. when user clicks a sub-category on the left navigation area, I want to expand sub-category to specific commodity list on the left navigation area (e.g. expand laptop to ThinkPad T60/T61/T400, 3 expanded links on the left navigation area), and when use select a specific commodity, like ThinkPad T60, on the main display area the specific page for the commodity will be displayed -- at the same time, the left side navigation area still remains the same (i.e. display sub-category laptop/server/netbook with expanded ThinkPad T60/T61/T400 for laptop sub-category).

    Any documents or advice for such solution? Is it hard or not in SharePoint Server 2007?

I am using top global navigation bar and left side navigation bar. The current issue is, the length of characters of items on the left side navigation bar is short (e.g. I am using some short words, like car, pet, book, etc.), but the width of the left navigation bar is a couple of times width of the length of characters of items on the left side navigation bar, which makes the UI look a little bit ugly.

  • Is there an upper limit to the number of item that are displayed in the Navigation Editing and Sorting control in the ‘Site Navigation Settings’ page? I have 49 items in the global Navigation and 54 items in the Current Navigation (most of which are hidden). I’ve added a new page to the pages library and I’d like to hide it from the navigation menu, however it’s not showing in the Navigation Editing and Sorting control. This made me wonder if there was an upper limit to the number of items that are shown.

  • I am using SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, and I am using publishing portal template. I am using SharePoint Designer 2007 to design pages. When I open the default.aspx under Pages sub-folder of a site, there are two options: Edit in Browser and Edit Page Layout. I want to know what are the differences between Edit in Browser and Edit Page Layout -- especially what is the function of Edit Page Layout, because when I select Edit Page Layout, WelcomeSplash.aspx opens in SharePoint Designer, other than default.aspx itself (very confused). thanks
