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.

    Anyone who has 'attended' a physical meeting by 'conferencing in' in knows the frustrations & limitations that come from not being in the room. You're the voice in the ceiling & not equally represented in the conversation.

    This is no longer acceptable.

    Today, we find ourselves facing the “hybrid work paradox.”

    Employees are keen to retain flexibility. At the same time, human-to-human collaboration remains important.

    To marry the best of both, hone your strategy, spaces, & tech to suit employee needs.

    It's the day of the show, y'all!

    Join the #PixelMillWebinars this morning at 11am PST for a live panel discussion about what the #digitalworkspace looks like for a #hybrid team, & how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.


    Join the #PixelMillWebinars this Thursday as we welcome key players from @OrchestrySoft, @KieferConsult, and @AP_Mortgage to discuss the hybrid work paradox and how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.

    We've all been itching to get "back to normal," but what does that mean? Are we missing out on valuable lessons learned by trying to return to something that perhaps wasn't working before?

    Join us next week for a live panel discussion on the new normal.
