Understanding Configuration of PeopleSoft Applications for 8.4x Navigation

The 8.5x navigation is based on iframe templates and features drop-down navigation. The 8.4x navigation is based on frame (HTML) templates and uses menu pagelet navigation. These topics describe the two tasks that you must complete to configure an 8.5x application for 8.4x navigation.

These topics describe how to:

  • Reconfigure the default template.

  • Reconfigure the navigation pagelet.

Important! HTML templates are deprecated as of PeopleTools 8.50. Many features introduced or enhanced after release 8.50 require iframe templates to function as designed. Features that are not supported in HTML templates include: modal windows and prompts; drop-down navigation; related content; WorkCenter pages; and SmartNavigation.
