NavXp gives you full control over layout, hierarchy and appearance. Build any DNN menu you can think of in minutes!
Version 1.8.2, Released Aug 11, 2011.
Light, fast and with different theme options, NavXp takes navigation experience to the next level.
NavXp comes with dozens of templates and allows you to easily create new themes with our jQuery based Theme Editor.
The two layers, logic and rendering, put you in control by allowing for deep customization without any hiccup.
NavXp allows defining custom items. This items can be used as containers (to group other items) or external links (optionally, a target window can be specified).
With NavXp localization of menus is made easy. All you need to do is create a profile and specify translations for each item.
Starting with 1.8.2 NavXp integrates with DNN 5.5+ tab localization. NavXp localization is still available, useful for localizing Arbitrary Items or customize tab titles.
Except security, each profile allows definition of a subset of pages to show in the order you prefer. Building your custom menu is as easy as dragging items from Portal Tabs tree into Profile Items tree.
All skins in NavXp follow strict SEO rules. All items are served through standard links and there is no AJAX happening on the menus, making it fully indexable by search engines.
Skins in NavXp are designed in XSL. Rendering is made with an XSL transformation on the server. This exposes full control to customize not only the appearance, but the layout as well.
NavXp implements custom caching mechanism that greatly improves performance. Cache time is set per profile.
NavXp offers several options to synchronize profile items with the DNN tabs they have been created from. Option to sync an item title, a entire item hierarchy or the entire DNN tab hierarchy.
Each skin in NavXp supports theming. A rich theme editor allows creating new variations of existing skins by modifying fonts, borders, colors, images, etc.
If MyTokens is installed, NavXp will call it to replace tokens in captions, alts and URLs on a profile basis.
NavXp implements IPortable which means you can import and export content out of NavXp modules. It also include advanced Export/Backup and Import/Restore tools.
UI in NavXp is built with the help of popular jQuery library. This means rich effects for menus as well as an easy to use, fast and reliable administration while maintaining compatibility between various browsers.
NavXp works on Firefox, IE6, IE7, Opera, Chrome, Safari.
Management functions of Navigation Experience are exposed inline by direct access from the menu when in Edit Mode. AJAX is used throughout the management interface to provide fast and reliable access to menu configuration.
NavXp instances (skin objects or modules) are linked to configuration instances named profiles. This means you can link one set of configuration options to multiple modules or skin objects on the same portal.
Initially, modules use a default profile which shows all pages that are normally shown in default DNN navigation menu. This makes it extremely easy when you only need the UI part of NavXp.
NavXp provides 3 interfaces to import items from external data sources: Module Controller integration (the controller implements special NavXp methods), SQL Integration (an XML definition file specifies which sql to run to get the items) and Code Integration (implement IPlugin interface from NavXp.Core assembly and instruct NavXp to load it in Plugin/.ExternalPlugins.xml)
A profile can target individual roles and users. You can link multiple profiles to the same instance that target different audience. This gives extended control over what different users see in terms of navigation.
While building a custom navigation tree, you can specify additional options for each item, such as providing an icon. NavXp comes with a set of icons that can be used on licensed portals.
Besides icons, you can specify a title for the item (that will be displayed instead of the DNN tab name making it possible to have the same page served under different names when the need arises) and an alternative descriptive text (that is displayed when the user moves the mouse over the link; also, specifying alternative texts contributes to SEO optimizations).
You can configure NavXP to run either as a Skin Object declared in site skin or as a module you add to the page just as any other DNN module.
Preferred method for granting support is through our forums. We also respond via DNN Store Help Desk.
All skins and themes have been developed on XHTML transitional document type.

Yes. You can download the NavXp 30 day free trial from: http://www.dnnsharp.com/dnn/modules/navxp-menus/download
The trial version is identical to the full version, except for the time limitations.
No, but for outstanding situations, please email us at email@example.com.
Absolutely not. You just need to use for activation the registration key received via email after the purchase was made.
You should. It is always best for you, the site owner, to have access to your account on dnnsharp.com. That’s how you access downloads, license keys, and support.
You can purchase a NavXp license under your own name and then give the developer the license key for the site. That way, you retain control of your own module purchase in the event that you need access or decide to switch developers.
You can integrate and distribute NavXp with your own products, but it should not be main functionality, it shoud be added value, and should not be in competition with our existing product. If we go into competition later, the developer will still be allowed to use the version he owns at that time, and continue to develop it, but will not receive new updates.
Yes, but please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, but only if there is a transfer of ownership of the entire product.
Yes, you can upgrade to a higher tier (and more value-packed) license for just the price difference in qualifying purchases made within the past 3 months. If your purchase was made more than 3 months ago, don’t worry, we still have a special offer for you. Just email us at email@example.com.
It's recommended because we test and optimize for new versions. Sometimes, new DNN version also breaks our modules so then you'll be required to upgrade. It's recommended to upgrade all at once to optimize the Q&A costs.
