FrontPage navigation bars

The choices for navigation bar levels


FrontPage navigation bars can show several different parts of a website, ranging from Children Under Home, Global pages, to Chid pages. Which pages are shown in the navigation bar depends on the properties chosen.

The navigation used here is taken from the FrontPage Navigation View for this site:
Navigation View

Here are some examples of link bars produced from the above section of the navigation view, and the associated property sheet. All the navigation bars use the page's theme (in this case there is no theme applied), and are oriented vertically. Additionally, the webbot code for the navigation bar (copied from Code view) is also shown. This page is the box labelled "FP Nav. Bars" in the above image.

1 - Global, including Home page

Global Home

<!--webbot b-include-home="TRUE" b-include-up="FALSE" bot="Navigation" s-orientation="vertical" s-rendering="graphics" s-type="global" -->

2 - Child Pages Under Home, including Home Page

6- Child Pages, including Home page

This will only display the Home page since there are no child pages for this page.

7- Child Pages under a different page, including Home page

This was suggested by Michael in the FrontPage newsgroup on 12/10/2008.

This requires a dive into Code View. Insert the navigation bar as for Child Pages, then modify the webbot:

The original webbot code is (usually all on one line):

<!--webbot 
b-include-home="TRUE"
b-include-up="FALSE" 
bot="Navigation" 
s-orientation="vertical" 
s-rendering="graphics" 
s-type="children" 
-->

Change to (again, all on one line):

<!--webbot 
b-include-home="TRUE" 
b-include-up="FALSE" 
bot="Navigation" 
s-orientation="vertical" 
s-rendering="graphics" 
s-type="children" 
U-Page="../../../mainpage/telephony.aspx"
-->

Note the addition of  U-Page="path/to/page.htm" in the code (in this example U-Page="../../../mainpage/telephony.aspx").  The navigation webbot uses this as the basis for the navigation bar, rather than the current page. The page used for the link bar below is the box labelled "Telephony" in the navigation view above. There in no image for the nav bar properties.
