Hi,

You need to have a unique tiles definition for each page that you want on your navigation. The new tiles definitions will override only the body element I suspect if you want all of the other parts of the page to be the same. Then in your navigation links will point to the tile definition you have created in your tiles.xml.

Good Luck

What does your tiles.xml page look like? Do you have a definition for AddCategory that extends your base page definition?



Once you have all of your definitions, your struts.xml action mappings will refer to your tiles definitions:

It's also called tiles-def.xml - I don't think the name matters as long as you put the same file name in your web.xml. Here'e the documentation:

There are lots of tutorials online.. G/L
