    • Profile Description: A short description of the Profile (optional);

    • Start Level: Configure how NavXp should render this profile: Profile Root will render the entire hierarchy; Current Page will render starting from the current page (assuming it exists inside your profile); Children of Current Page will render starting with the children of current page;

    • Maximum level to render: Specify the maximum depth NavXp should render for this profile. Set it to 0 (default) to have NavXp render the entire hierarchy. Note that the actual number of levels that are rendered also depends on the skin you’re using;

    • Default Items Visibility: Use this option to specify the default visibility the items should have. Inherit DNN means NavXp will respect the Include in Menu checkbox from DNN page settings. Set to Visible to have items appear in the menu regardless of DNN setting. The visibility can be overriden per item from respective Properties Dialog;
