Can’t add a global site navigation link

If you encounter problems while customizing global site navigation in a custom site definition for SharePoint 2010, you probably can solve it by adding the necessary navbar element in navbars section of the onet.xml:

<NavBar Name="$Resources:core,category_Top;"
    Body="&lt;a ID='onettopnavbar#LABEL_ID#' href='#URL#' accesskey='J'&gt;#LABEL#&lt;/a&gt;"
    ID="1002" />

It solved the problems for me :).

    How did you edit the Onet.XML file? What if this is only happening on one site in a whole site colleciton will this help this site as well.
    Thanks for any help you can give. This problem is bugging me on one of my sites.

      You can only edit onet.xml in a site definition or a web template. And it affects your site only when you create a site.
