When we released our Knowledge base, with its own optimised UI/UX, we introduced a navigation sidebar widget that showed the category structure. We’ve received a lot of feedback since, the main question: “Can we have such a widget for our community structure as well”.
Today we’re happy to share that we developed a new sidebar widget that allows you to show the community category structure in your community category pages.
Categories that the user is allowed to see will be displayed in the sidebar widget (e.g. when a user is not logged in then he will not see ‘private’ categories in the sidebar widget). You can see this widget in practice here on inSpired.
This widget allows you to
Add a Community navigation sidebar widget to the General Sidebar
Configure a widget title (e.g. Categories, Navigation, Go to)
Show your community category structure in your community (parent) category pages
- This widget will only display on Community (parent) category pages.
- This widget is restricted to the General Sidebar
You can find the new widget “Community navigation” in Control → Customization → Sidebar. You can only add this widget to the General Sidebar.
We hope you like this new widget. If you have any questions, feedback or would like to use this widget on topic pages as well let us know in the comments below
