How to recreate navigation bar

I am trying to recreate the navigation bar that is in the Foswiki skin. The only way I could figure out to recreate it (I am new at coding in this language) was to edit FoswikiSiteSkinNavigationTemplate on the home site and then copy and paste the code onto mine. User access controls prevent me from doing this. Can somebody tell me how to recreate this menu?

First you have to install FoswikiSiteSkin. Then in System.FoswikiSiteSkinNavigationTemplate you can modify the menu.

There are lines in the form
%TMPL:P{"topbarbutton" ID="" DESTWEB="%WEB%" DESTTOPIC="WebHome" LABEL="Home"}%
There modifing the DESTTOPIC, DESTWEB and LABEL parameters you can obtain diferent links.

Check a working example in (an example of modified template in

BTW you can always copy the code of a topic you can view using Raw view option in the bottom menu.
