Side navigation

The Portal 8.5 theme includes a side navigation template that can be applied to render pages at the secondary level in a list with the main content. By default, this template is applied to the Administration section of your portal.

The side navigation is composed of three parts:

Theme template
The theme template includes the markup required to render a dynamic content spot next to the main content and sets a class on the body element that can be used to scope styles to this template.

Dynamic Content Spot
The dynamic content spot recursively loops over the navigation hierarchy to render the pages. The dynamic content spot is a JSP that uses expression logic to access the navigation and provides easy to read code. You can customize the start level parameter of the dynamic content spot to render different sets of pages.

Styles
The CSS is built into the theme master layer and out of box customizations were not included for each style. The default style is applied to the Administration pages.
