    • /sitecore/templates/Intranet/Intranet.WebPartFrameworkSettings

  10. Important! Check that in the /sitecore/system/IntranetSettings/MainSettings/NormanSettings item, the SubMenuIncludeTemplates field contains all the templates from the includetemplates parameter of the /xsl/Intranet.SubMenu.xslt file. Items based on those templates will be displayed in side menu.
