Navbars created before Learning Environment 9.0 use a different layout than current navbars. The main difference between current navbars and former navbars is that former navbars were designed for a fixed size navigation area within a frame.
The new Navbars tool allows greater design flexibility. Navbar resizing is more fluid, accommodates different screen resolutions better and is more accessible to individuals navigating by keyboard and assistive technologies. We recommend that you take the time to recreate migrated navbars using the new Navbars tool.
Your navbars and legacy navbar templates are automatically migrated when you upgrade from a pre-Learning Environment 9.0 release to Learning Environment 9.0 or later. However, your ability to edit and share these items is restricted.
Legacy navbar templates are visible in Learning Environment 9.0 and later, but they cannot be edited using the new Navbars tool, copied or used as the template for new navbars.
Legacy navbar templates are migrated at the organization level and shared with all child org units. They are listed below other navbar templates on the Templates page. If you select a legacy template to edit it, you are taken to the legacy Edit Template page. You can only use the legacy Edit Template page for migrated legacy templates; you cannot create new templates based on the legacy tool.
We recommend that you recreate your legacy templates and update all of your migrated navbars if possible. This way you can reuse your templates in new navbars and your navbar design will not affect the usability of your course pages.
All your existing navbars are migrated to the new Navbars tool. Your navbar template, name, description, links and title are maintained.
The following applies to migrated navbars:
When you edit a migrated navbar you use the same Edit Navbar page as you use for new navbars.
When you copy a migrated navbar that uses a legacy template, your navbar links and title are copied, but the navbar copy uses the default navbar template rather than the legacy template associated with the migrated navbar. This happens because you cannot create new copies of legacy navbar templates.
The left and right link areas for migrated navbars use a fixed width based on the width of the left background and right background image. If you add more links to an area than the background image's width supports, your links will be truncated on the navbar (some links will not appear). You can fix your navbar in one of three ways:
