Flyout Navigation in SharePoint 2007

Following the tip that my colleague Mauro Cardarelli posted in his blog, I still wasn’t seeing any flyouts on the navigation tabs.  I fiddled with things for a while and finally figured out why.  I needed to change a single navigation option to make things work.

Say you have a site hierarchy like:

Home |

         | Offices |

                      | Cleveland

                      | New York

                      | San Francisco

                      | etc.

Once you’ve set the MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels property to 2 in your master page, you also need to go to the Offices site and do Site Actions/Site Settings/Navigation and check the Show Subsites checkbox.  Go back to your Home Page, and there are the flyouts!
