Article Last Updated

To hide the SumTotal navigation bar for your Articulate courses, add an Extended API to the imsmanifest.xml file after publishing. Here's how:

  1. Publish your Articulate content for LMS.
  2. On the Publish Successful dialog, click Open Folder.
  3. Open the imsmanifest.xml file in a text editor, such as Notepad.
  4. In the <manifest> tag, add the two attributes highlighted in red below:
    <manifest identifier="XXX" version="1.1" 
    xmlns="http://www.imsproject.org/xsd/imscp_rootv1p1p2" 
    xmlns:adlcp="http://www.adlnet.org/xsd/adlcp_rootv1p2" 
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
    xmlns:c2lcp="http://www.sumtotalsystems.com/xsd/c2l_cp_rootv1p1" 
    xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.imsproject.org/xsd/imscp_rootv1p1p2 
    imscp_rootv1p1p2.xsd
    http://www.imsglobal.org/xsd/imsmd_rootv1p2p1 imsmd_rootv1p2p1.xsd 
    http://www.adlnet.org/xsd/adlcp_rootv1p2 adlcp_rootv1p2.xsd> 
    http://www.sumtotalsystems.com/xsd/c2l_cp_rootv1p1 c2l_cp_rootv1p1.xsd">
  5. Add the following code (highlighted in red) at the end of the imsmanifest.xml file after the closing </resource> tag and before the closing </manifest> tag.
    </resources>
    <c2lcp:ItemDataExtra >
    <c2lcp:ItemData Identifier="CRJ200_P_INI_ACGEN_v1.52" Type="Course" >
    <c2lcp:ItemSpecificData >
    <c2lcp:CourseData>
    <c2lcp:PackageProperties >
    <c2lcp:CourseDisplay >
    <c2lcp:TOC>
    <c2lcp:MaxWidth>100</c2lcp:MaxWidth>
    <c2lcp:ScrollBar>yes</c2lcp:ScrollBar>
    <c2lcp:BackgroundColor>cdcdcd</c2lcp:BackgroundColor>
    </c2lcp:TOC>
    <c2lcp:ShowNavBar>no</c2lcp:ShowNavBar>
    </c2lcp:CourseDisplay >
    <c2lcp:Launch >
    <c2lcp:Width>1024</c2lcp:Width>
    <c2lcp:Height>768</c2lcp:Height>
    <c2lcp:AllowResize>yes</c2lcp:AllowResize>
    </c2lcp:Launch >
    </c2lcp:PackageProperties >
    </c2lcp:CourseData>
    </c2lcp:ItemSpecificData >
    </c2lcp:ItemData >
    </c2lcp:ItemDataExtra >
    </manifest>
  6. Save and close the imsmanifest.xml file.
  7. Zip all the published files for your course, and upload the zip file to your LMS.
