WPC on Portal 7.3: Area in top level navigation

Hi,

We are trying to set up a site using Web Page Composer on portal 7.3, but we are not able to display the area in the first level of the navigation.

Let's say we need following structure in the navigation:

Departments

-- HR

-- Trading & Supply

-- Finance

-- ...

We want the content managers of our site to create extra departments without sending an area connection request to show the new department in the navigation.

Is it possible to create an Area Departments, link it to a role by creating a connection and use this connection as an entry point?

I've tried to edit the connection and mark "departments" as entry point, but it's not appearing in the top level navigation.

kr,

Joachim

    Hi Joachim,

    Unfortunately we could not use the connection as the entry point to the role.That means you cannot have your Area in the First level of TLN.

    Either you have to have a folder or role as entry point and below that we have to create connection

    Hi,

    An area cannot be the first level of navigation. When you publish an area in WPC 2.0 it becomes a workset. Connecting the area to a role is similar to placing a workset under a role (the technicalities aren't the same, but that's the general idea).

    Information regarding area connection can be found at:

    What a pity!

    Ok, I think I can find a workaround. I will create all first-levels as a folder in the staging area, just to create a comprehensive structure for the content managers. In these folders, I'll create areas, these areas are my 2nd level navigation. For creating 1st level and 2nd level navigation entries, content managers still need the IT department, let's call it job security 😊

    2 new questions that I can't solve:

    How can I translate the folders in the staging area?

    How can I translate the name of the areas for display in the 2nd level navigation?
