Recently I had to create an informative communication site with multiple pages divide in multiple “chapters”. And because of vast number of pages I didn’t want to use the standard top or left navigation, I wanted something more elaborate and I had the following prerequisites:

  • Pages and Chapters should be shown in the order of my choosing Page-level security should be maintained
