Navigation Structure in Expression Web

It’s possible to get Navigation View back into Expression Web, at least temporarily! Here’s a great tip from the Microsoft newsgroup for those sites that you want to edit in Expression Web but that use FrontPage link bars or page banners.

  1. Open your local site in Expression Web.
  2. Go to Tools… Macro… Visual Basic Editor.
  3. This launches Visual Basic Editor. Go to View… Immediate Window (or type Ctrl-G) if the Immediate Window isn’t showing.
  4. Inside the Immediate Window, type this code: ActiveWebWindow.ViewMode = WebViewNavigation
  5. Type Enter to run the code.
  6. You can close the Visual Basic Editor to return to Expression Web.
