8.10. Managing category navigation

The category navigation gets rid of long URLs when you view content and enables you to see published documents or web content in specific categories in one page. Thanks to the symbolic link, no matter where the object physically resides, the database can retrieve it. In addition, the relations amongst shortcuts can be managed. Now, you can view documents or web content in the Content List Viewer easily.

  1. Go to News on the Navigation bar.

    • The left pane lists all the categories containing documents or web content.

    • The right pane displays the documents selected in the left pane.

  2. Select a category that you want to view on the left. The selected category will be shown on the right (only documents or web content published are shown).
