adding new quick launch links after site has been created RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

    looking for suggestion on the best way to add new links in quick launch once my site has been created.

    1. I have created a site definition with quick link customization.

    2. deployed it and created a new site from site def.

    3. new requirements come and i now have to add few extra links in quick launch.

    4. since site has been already created, i don't think an wsp -update will show newly added links in quick launch.

  • Hey singhome,

    I'm assuming you have tried Site Ac tions -> Site Settings -> Look and Feel (Header) -> Navigation -> Site Navigation Settings and that did not work - is that correct?

    If so then please try this - create a Link list in your site, create a custom master page for your site, replace the quick launch web part with the Link list web part, and then manage the link list to add the new lists and libraries as needed.

    I hope that helps!
