Navigation bars are among the most important instruments on the web - use the Linchpin Navigation Menus to integrate an individualized navigation system into Confluence! 

Companies that use Confluence often want the navigation bar integrated into the interface so that the important pages can be worked on directly. All users are aware of the navigation through their distribution of websites. This along with the very high usability make navigating a very powerful toon within a wiki. 

With theLinchpin Navigation Menus, //SEIBERT/MEDIA developed a Confluence plugin that allows the user to quickly and easily integrate a navigation bar right into the Confluence interface. The plugin can be conveniently implemented via the plugin manager in the admin area and displayed by entering a code snippet in the navigation bar. You can configure which points will be displayed in the navigation bar and where they will be referenced within the admin area. You can choose the navigation points' titles. As references, you can determine both Confluence pages and external links. In addition to that, creating hierarchies is possible in order to create sub-points from the main menu items. 

Another feature of the Linchpin Navigation Menus is query rights. For example, if a page linked to the navigation bar is protected, the item will only be displayed if the user has access to it. If the user lacks access rights, the item will not be shown. Therefore, the navigation bar keeps track of page restrictions in Confluence. 

Companies that use Confluence in a language other than English can get excited about the multi-linguistic Linchpin Navigation Menus. For every language and country combination, a separate menu can be determined to display user logins. Therefore, different users see different navigation bars depending on the specified user settings.
