Where did the Navigation portlet go in Plone 3.0?
When I start up Plone 3.0, the Navigation portlet no longer shows up! Where did it go and how do I get it back?
From version 3.0 onwards, the default behavior for the Navigation portlet has changed. By default, it will not show up until the user navigates to one of the top-level folders or deeper into the site. In other words, the nav portlet is now used for secondary navigation, whereas the tabs are used for the top-level navigation. You can of course customize this to match your needs.
If you want the old behavior back, login as a Site Manager and click on the "Manage portlets" link.
In the left slot, you'll see a Navigation portlet link. Click on that to access the Navigation settings. Use the following:
- Tick the "Include top node" check box if you want "Home" to show up in the Navigation portlet
- Change the "Start level" to 0
Click "Save", then return to the home page, and the Navigation portlet is restored.
