If your page/folder/file is still not showing in the left navigation of your site please check the following:
- That the page/folder/file is set to index as well as the folder that the page is in. (See below)
- The the page/folder/file has metadata - anything that needs to be in the navigation must have metadata. See here.
- The page/folder/file isn't 4 levels or deeper within folders. The navigation only goes 3 levels deep. The first level is what is shown when you first visit the site, you can create a folder with pages and files for a 2nd level and create another folder with pages and files but after that the navigation will stop.
- When adding pages/folders/files to your navigation be sure to publish the entire directory to update all other pages with the additional link.
Files and folders set to 'Include when indexing' will appear as left hand navigational links on the live site. You can set this option in while in Edit mode in the System options for the page/file/folder. (All files and folders available to you will be visible within the CMS directory hierarchy, independent of indexing status.)
An index file is the page served to the user when a specific folder is requested, since folders are not webpages.
For example: www.union.edu/StudentLife will display www.union.edu/StudentLife/index.php automatically.
If an index file does not exist within a folder, an error will occur when a user directs his/her browser to that folder. An index file should be set to 'Include when publishing' and to 'Include when indexing'.
