How to fix SharePoint sites that don’t appear in top navigation

(this post applies to SharePoint 2010, 2013, 2016 classic sites)

So in this scenario, a user was unable to get new SharePoint 2010 sites to show in the top navigation, even though some where hidden. If this happens to you try the following:

  • Navigate to Site Actions > Site Settings
  • Under Look and Feel > Navigation
  • In Global Navigation > update the maximum number of dynamic items
Update the maximum number of dynamic items to show all your sites

That’s it! now all your sites that haven’t been hidden will be displayed in the global navigation.
