MOSS: Sub sites and Pages do not show up under “Modify Navigation” pane

leave a comment »

Problem Description:
——————————
–When a user goes to site actions-all site settings-modify navigation, unable to show/hide pages in the pane. The only option available is to edit
–Instead of actual page we only see the shortcuts of the pages
–when we choose the option to show all subsite and pages it will only show 50 sub-sites and not more than that even if you have 300 sub-sites

SYMPTOMS:
—————–
–You will only see shortcuts of pages showing in the pane instead of actual page
–You can use Show/Hide option for pages

ERROR MESSAGE:
————————–
–No Error Message
CAUSE:
———–
–It’s by design in SharePoint
RESOLUTION:
——————–

–Refer the following blog
<http://blogs.msdn.com/ecm/archive/2007/02/10/moss-navigation-deep-dive-part-1.aspx>
STEPS TO REPRO:
————————–
–create a site collection called http://moss
–created a batch file to run the following comamnd to create 50 subsites

@echo
@set PATH=C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN;%PATH%

stsadm -o createweb -url http://moss/site1
….
….
stsadm -o createweb -url http://moss/site50

stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs

IISRESET /NoFORCE

–opened the site http://moss and went to site actions–modify all site settings–modify navigation

–checked both the options
[]show subsites
[]show pages

–it was showing all the subsites correctly

–again ran the batch file to create site from 51-101

@echo

@set PATH=C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN;%PATH%

stsadm -o createweb -url http://moss/site51
….
….
stsadm -o createweb -url http://moss/site101

stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs

IISRESET /NoFORCE

–now opened the site and checked the issue

–it was not showing the entire subsite

–it was only showing 50 sites
