We have recently upgraded to version 17.04.2 and I notice that the collections do not have the tabs for the navigation bar anymore, but instead a drop down menu. Is there a setting available to switch this back to the tabs? Or is this integrated within the theme?

Hi Anna,

The new collection navigation is built into the themes. It was decided to go with a dropdown as collections can have many pages and lots of tabs were cluttering up the view.

However , saying that, if you were to edit the file


to copy it to

htdocs/theme/[your theme]/templates/collectionnav.tpl

and edit tit there

You could adjust things so all page name tabs appeared again
