Um... I was trying to update the Elder Scrolls Wiki to include some of the pages from the latest Skyrim page, and now it has gotten rid of a lot of dropdown menus. Is there a limit on how many of them can be shown? Thanks in advance! TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 06:59, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Timeoin, navigation allows for 4 main headings with 7 drop down links. Are you seeing less? I checked Elderscrolls and wasn't sure what should be there & what you want there. If you are looking to add more links and headings you may want to enable Expanded Wiki Nav — you'll be able to add a lot more content that way. You can enable it in Labs in Wiki Features . We have it enabled on Community if you want to take a look at it. Let me know if this helps! --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 07:19, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
Yes! That did indeed help, Meighan! Thanks! TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 08:21, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

I also have a question about the Top Navigation on the RAOGK wiki. I figured out how to get two new items in the top menu for: USA and Int'l. I can't for the life of me figure out how to add the submenus. I saw somewhere that you can have 4 top menus, each top menu could have 7 submenus, and the submenus could have a max of 10 items in the drop down. Using USA as an example, I'd like to break USA into: NE, SE, SW, NW, Midwest, etc. and have 10 states listed under those items. (I have state pages for each of the 50 states). Do I need pages for NE, SE, SW, NW, etc? Can anyone help me with some sample code for just one of the submenus?? (Like with NE some of the states would be Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, etc.) --Cowantex 13:02, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

You can make items in the navigation do nothing when clicked by putting <nowiki> and </nowiki> around the item you don't want to have links. Next time, please make a new forum about this rather than bumping an old one, as this forum was from over 4 months ago and should be left as is by now. EpicWikipedian 13:22, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
Don't use <nowiki> tags to make a navigation label not a link. Instead, use a number sign (#) and a pipe symbol before the label, like so:
