Hi 

 

I hope you can help me out.

I have some hub sites with associated sites (all are communication sites).

I can edit the pages and navigation on all sites, but when I make changes to the top bar navigation (hub site), the changes won't go through. I am primary admin on all sites and it worked 4 days ago. 

 

Do any of you have the same problem?

 

Kind regards Morten

Just tested & working as expected on our tenant.

 

If it persists you should submit a ticket as suggests a more localised issue.

Exact same issue here! I am unable to add any new links to the top navigation on the hub site! No matter what I do it won't save the new changes?

 

Thanks,

Mark

Good to see that I'm not the only one. I thought I was going crazy :)

I found a workaround now:

 

A fix for the issue of inability to edit the hub nav is rolling out now. As a workaround you can edit the hub nav from either the site content's page or any document library.

Yes! Having the same issue! I just spoke with MS Support and they didn't see anything on it- glad I'm not the only one!

This works for me. On the hubsite navigate to a system page and add/edit the navigation there.

Hi all!

This just happen to me at a customers site and there is no way to make changes.

I tried from the start page, from a library page with no luck.

From Site settings the Hub navigation doesn't show up.

 

Any ideas?

@Kevin NguyenUnfortunately this doesn't work for me. I tried both on sitecontents and document-library but the navigation still won't save..
