Hi!

I want to implement a navigation that does not only display the name of the content (e.g. HOME). Instead it should include a picture and a teaser text that is specified in the web content of the referenced page (in this case HOME). Is that possible? If yes, how? If no, is there an alternative solution? Where can I put the teaser information of the referenced page in order to be able to reference that information through the nav_item reference?

Thank you in advance!
Judi

Hi Judith,

Yes you can achive it through Custom Velocity Variables concept.

Only thing is you have to set whatever you required in custom variables.Set it in the VelocityVariable and access it in navigation.vm

Refer the below URL's for More INfo:
http://www.liferay.com/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/Custom+Velocity+Variables

Correct me if i'm wrong with your understanding!

Hi Judith,

I achieved the same functionality in one of my implementation.
You can refer http://www.liferaysolution.com/2011/12/embed-or-integrate-web-content-in-theme.html for detail implementation.
And one more this i would like to highlight here is to create web content using structure and template and show that content as a navigation in theme.
Hope this will be useful !!!!

Hi!

Thank you very much for your reply.

Unfortunately I am an absolute Liferay beginner and don't quite understand how to retrieve specific elements of the webcontent of my navigation items using the technique stated in your post. Can you possibly give me further information?

Best regards, Judith
