Horizontal navigation

*Note: This navigation type is for approved websites only.

The horizontal navigation includes top-level pages for the current site. Dropdown menus show second-level child pages (if available), but not third-level and lower. The links are constant for all pages in the site – they doesn’t change to reflect current sibling-level pages like the sidebar.
