ExtendedNavigation allows your wiki to take advantage of 4th and 5th level navigation on the standard NavBar.

When adding level 4 and level 5 submenus, simply edit your MediaWiki:Wiki-navigation file as usual, and use '****' to designate level 4 submenus and '*****' to designate level 5 submenus. Wikia will ignore the extra lines, but the custom JavaScript will add the higher-level menus where appropriate.

A couple of things to note:

  • You may only increase the submenu level by 1 level at a time (just like with the normal Wikia-generated menus), i.e. you can't have a level 4 submenu immediately following a level 2 submenu.
  • If you wish to add a level 4 submenu, the level 2 submenu it belongs to must be unique. Either the link itself must be unique, or if you have used <nowiki></nowiki> to identify a menu item with no link ('#'), the display name must be unique. The code uses a jQuery .find() method to attach the appropriate HTML, so if the level 2 submenu is not unique, it will attach the menu to every instance it finds.
