SharePoint Responsive > Navigation > Levels of Navigation
The site structure creates the levels of navigation (nav). As you may know, websites usually include at least two levels. Here at DePaul in our SharePoint environment, we have the ability to create multiple levels in the navigation.
These various levels can be seen visually in the global (top) navigation and in the local (left) navigation.
The top level is called the root. This level is also called the Home Page or landing page of the website. On this website, the root is resources.depaul.edu/sharepoint. It is the first level of the navigation and the very highest level of the site structure.
The next level of navigation are the global nav items. These are any subsites that come after the root in the structure. These are seen visually at the top of every page in the entire site. The image below shows the global nav of this site.
