Branding Differences with Structured vs. Managed Navigation in SharePoint – Tips for Coding

Managed navigation was introduced in SharePoint 2013 and it swept in a new way to manage your site navigation. No longer did you have to use your site structure, but now you could pick and choose sites/pages/list items/forms/etc. across your site and build out a custom navigation solution.  You can mix and match and easily switch between the two.  But as soon as you want to rebrand the navigation bar(s), you do need to have a plan in order to support both managed and structured navigation and code in response.  Continue reading Branding Differences with Structured vs. Managed Navigation in SharePoint – Tips for Coding
