Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've been working on my company's Microsoft SharePoint 2010 server and one large annoyance that I've had is that the "Top Link Bar" has continually been acting screwy. The Top Link Bar (found under the site's main icon and configured in "Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Look and Feel -> Top link bar") has links to several local location including the calendar, wiki pages, and site pages. When clicked, the browser will navigate to that page and highlight the link in the bar.

The problem I've been having is that, when a user clicks the "Home" link (mapped to location "/"), the "Home" link is not highlighted but the site pages link (mapped to "/SitePages/page_name.aspx") is highlighted instead. This is annoying and confusing to users.

Is this problem even reproducible by others? Any ideas on how to fix this? I've tried deleting links, renaming them, changing the order, ... but the last (non-"Home") link in the list always ends up getting highlighted instead of "Home".

Does the issue persist on subsites or any other site in the collection? –  Stuart Pegg Mar 2 '11 at 12:37
