  2. Hi,I have some doubt in the Quick launch bar customization. I have done nested display in the Quick launch bar by editing the below code:<SharePoint:AspMenu id=”QuickLaunchMenu” DataSourceId=”QuickLaunchSiteMap” runat=”server” Orientation=”Vertical” StaticDisplayLevels=”2″ ItemWrap=”true” MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels=”1″ StaticSubMenuIndent=”0″ SkipLinkText=””>After editing the sub document libraries are displayed in the nested format. But it will be displayed beside the “.ASPX” page. I want to display the links in the top of the ASPX page. Is it possible?Please help us to resolve this issue.

  3. Also try adding the following to remove the date {display:none;}Hope that is useful.
