Bamboo's "SharePoint Navigators" offer a simple way to add flexible, custom navigation to your SharePoint sites. Whether you want custom Tab, Drop Down, or Tree driven menus, SharePoint Navigators lets you decide how your site navigation should function and look. Using Navigators, you can create custom menus that let you navigate between lists, sites, and pages, even across multiple site collections, all with a single, consistent UI. With support for security trimming, and relative or absolute paths, you don't have to worry about exposing anything but the content you want to deliver. For more details (like multi-level menus), or to download a free trial copy, check out the SharePoint Navigator's product page.
Previously available only as part of Bamboo's Suites, SharePoint Navigators can now be purchased on their own. We originally introduced SharePoint Navigators as an add-on feature for our suites, but based on customer feedback, it's clear there's demand for them outside the suites as well, so we have made them available for purchase separately. They will remain in the suites as well, to continue to help customers tie our various Web Parts together in any way they see fit. Happy navigating! ;)
