Show Navigation Bar

This setting controls the navigation bar shown at the bottom of the screen.

The back and forward buttons allow visitors to move within the navigation history of their session, as in a standard browser. The home icon returns the visitor to the Homepage configured in Kiosk Pro's settings.  These icons can be toggled on or off individually in Plus and Enterprise. 

In Basic, Plus & Enterprise, the navigation bar can also contain the PDF Multipage Icon, Print Icon, and/or Quick Links if enabled.  In Enterprise, it can also contain a Volume Slider and/or Headphone Switch.

In Lite & Basic

In the Lite and Basic versions, this setting is a single toggle to show/hide the navigation bar.

Default: On

In Plus & Enterprise

Kiosk Pro Plus and Enterprise

In Plus and Enterprise, you can toggle the navigation bar depending on the type of content being shown. You can also choose whether to show it for remote content or content stored locally for each type of file.

This adds more flexibility for users who prefer not to use the navigation bar for their main content, but need a way for visitors to exit from PDFs or other files that may not always contain their own navigation systems.

Default: all are turned On

It is also possible to override the standard settings by integrating our JavaScript API.

Standard Web Browser

Includes .html and other traditional web file types such as .php and .aspx. If a file type is not specifically defined in one of the categories below, it will be included in the standard web browser category.

PDF Files

Includes only .pdf files.

Presentation Files

Includes PowerPoint and Keynote files (.ppt, .pptx, .key).

Document Files

Includes Word, Excel and basic text files (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, and .txt).

Multimedia Files

Includes all unembedded audio, video, and image files. This means that a link directly to an .mp4 video file would be included, but to an .html file with an embedded .mp4 video would not.

New Tab or Window

Includes pages opened as a new tab or new window, either via a "target=blank" attribute in HTML or via JavaScript.
