MegaNavV8 fully supports Umbraco Cloud including the content synchroniser,it has been fully tested transferring and restoring between environments.
Since v8.2.0 it is possible to disable the Umbraco Cloud content sync, simply add the relevant AppSetting below into your Web.Config
To fully disable sync, making the transfer and restore options redundant, simple add the following AppSetting (true | false)
<add key="DisableUmbracoCloudSync" value="true" />
To partially disable sync so that the menu is transferred but not the dependencies, use the below AppSetting (true | false)
<add key="DisableUmbracoCloudDependencySync" value="true" />
After installing the package, you will have a new property editor called MegaNavV8 in the Umbraco backoffice.
Here you can configure the "Max depth" of the navigation - the maximum number of levels deep at which an editor can place nav items. You also have the option to prevent nav items where the umbracoNaviHide property has been set from rendering on the front-end - these items will still appear in the backoffice but not on your website, you can still edit or change them as you wish. By default both of these settings are left unset.
Now in V8 you can set the querystring / anchor in a seperate input box the same way as the MultiUrlPicker.
Now your Data Type is ready, we need to add it to a Document Type. This is done in the usual way - you will find Meganav appears in the "pickers" section when selecting a property to add.
Wow! That was easy! You now have a shiny new navigation picker setup for your content editors to enjoy.
In the backoffice, the design of Meganav closely follows the other pickers in Umbraco to ensure your editor's experience is as familiar as possible.
Click and drag an item to change it's position within the navigation; drop it wherever you choose. Unpublished items will appear faded out and will not show on the front-end of the website. If you have the "Remove NaviHide Items" setting enabled, any items where the umbracoNaviHide property has been set on the selected content node will appear with a red outline in the backoffice and will also not show on the front-end.
When editing a navigation item you have the flexibility to modify how the link behaves on the front-end. Entering text into the "Link Title" field will display in place of the select content's name. Changing the "Target" property alters how the link opens when clicked; either in the current window, a new tab, or a new browser window.
Meganav was designed to be as clean and simple for developers as it is for content editors.
