Only one site level is displayed on the submenu of a top navigation link in SharePoint Online


View products that this article applies to.

Problem

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a Microsoft SharePoint Online site collection and a site hierarchy that span multiple levels. For example, a site collection contains a subsite, and the subsite contains another subsite.
  • The site collection is using the Team Site template, and the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure is set to Active on the site collection. Or, the site collection was created through the Publishing Portal template.
  • On the Navigation Settings menu in Site Settings (under Global Navigation), you select Structural Navigation, and then you select the Show subsites check box.
  • You make changes to the master page by using Microsoft SharePoint Designer to increase the�MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels property of the TopNavigationMenuV4 control to a value of 2 or more.
When you view the submenu on the top navigation bar in this scenario, you see only one site level.

Or, if you're using the SharePoint 2013 interface, you can use the managed navigation feature to work around this issue.
