Navigation Layout Modification !!

Hello There,

Following is the environment ...

SAP Portal EP 6.0 SP2

The portal is used internally and have a default layout set up for navigation which includes two levels. So , when a user clicks on the first level tab ( Like Home tab in sdn) , the second navigation will appear under the main tab and user can click on the second tabs (sdn does not have that) to see other pages.

Requirement :

We are developing the portal for external customers for which the requirement is little different. Since there are other external web sites for different application (not running under SAP Portal), it is necessary that all external web sites have the same navigation structure so that external users are not confused when navigation between external application. The other external site have navigation which is created through javascript (www.milonic.com). A live example of these can be seen at http://www.busabout.com . The navigation here is as shown, one main level and all secondry levels are shown as pop-up window ( like options under "Travel Options".

Issue:

How can I configure the SAP Portal 6.0 SP2 to have the navigation system behave like I described above ??

Your help is really appreciated !!

Thanks

Bhabesh Patel

    Is there some documentation available for these kind of changes ?? I am willing to try the massive change path if needed.

    • Hi Babesh Patel,

      see under ...\irj\root\WEB-INF\portal\portalapps\com.sap.portal.navigation.toplevel the two JSP files under \pagelet as well as the jar under \private\lib, com.sapportals.portal.navigation.TopLevelNavigationiView.class

      These three together are supplier (the class) and displayer of the TLN.

      Hope it helps

    Hi Bhabesh Patel,

    this navigational behaviour cannot be configured for EP6 SP2. The only thing wich can be customized on EP6 SP2 is to be found here: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_ep60sp2/helpdata/en/53/a16a3e54a2e946e10000000a114084/frameset.htm (Hover Effect)

    To achieve a behaviour you have in mind you would have to kill the detailed navigation and to (massively) extend the top level navigation. This would be a bunch of work...

    Hope it helps
