Quicklaunch navigation will not show a link if it’s set as the home page.

Today I had the requirement to include a link in the quick launch menu to the current web’s homepage. Agreed it’s a strange requirement, but nonetheless in this case it was arguably not too bad.

However the default SPNavigationProvider does not display the homepage in the quick launch menu. In order to do this add the link as an external page, even though it’s not.

using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://localhost"))
{
	using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb(""))
	{
		string url = web.ServerRelativeUrl + "/Pages/MyPage.aspx";
		WL("Adding..." + url);
		
		SPNavigationNodeCollection nodes = web.Navigation.QuickLaunch;				
		SPNavigationNode newNode = new SPNavigationNode("MyLinkTitle", url, true);
		nodes.AddAsLast(newNode);
		web.Update();
	}
}
