Link Bar Disappearing


L

Liz Rava

When I am designing my home page, the correct link bar shows up. When I
preview the page in a browser, the link bar disappears. When I click on
"link bar properties" and try to change the levels that the link bar shows up
on, I can't get the little box that says "page link bar will appear on" to go
up to my home page. Any help would be really appreciated! Thanks!

That is not how it works.
The box "page link bar will appear on" is an illustration showing the relationship between the pages linked to, and the page the link bar is on.

If the link bar disappears on your page, then you may have chosen a link bar that will not display anything on that page. For instance, placiong a link bar that shows Same Level will not appear on the home page, unless you also tick "Include Home page" - and then ONLY the home page will show.

For the Home page, use either Child Pages Under Home or Child Pages, and in either case, tick the box "Include Home page"
For other pages, the link bar properties to use depends on where the page is located with respect to the Home page - two levels down, one level down etc.
Again, Children Under Home will work for pages that connect directly to the Home page in Navigation View.

Perhaps http://www.rxs-enterprises.org/fp/articles/navigation/fp-navbars.aspx
will help.

I went in and chose those options, and still when I preview in IE 8.0,
'poof!', the entire link bar box on the left hand side is completely gone,
formatting and all. I recently rearranged my navigation (the order that the
pages are under the home page), but nothing else has changed. Thanks for
your help! :)

the home page has *many* opening and closing <head> tags and also in the
wrong place.

Your home page, as Rob remarked, has numerous <head> and </head> tags, but
the <body> tag comes before the first <head>
The correct order for tags is:
<html>
<head>
various <meta> tags and the page <title>...</title> tag - order is not
important
<style>... </style> [optional] (can be among the meta tags)
<script type="javascript">... </script> [optional] (can be among the meta
tags)
</head>
<body>
page content goes here
</body>
</html>

Notice that is is only ONE <head> tag, only ONE <html> and only ONE <body>,
and the <body> follows the </head>

The shared borders you are using need the body tag in the right place -
without it the shared borders (and the navigation) will not appear.
