I would like to turn off the security trimming for the top navigational bar in site collections.  We want everyone to see all of the top tabs and be able to use the flyout menus to get to their sites.

Any ideas on how to do this?  I can't seem to find the right place.

Give everyone Read access to all the sites under the site collection & specify the Appropriate Permissions inside the individual sites. Did you already consider this option?

Yes, we didn't want to necessarily give the permissions to go into all the sites, just see the tabs so the can use the flyout menus to get to sites they do have access to.

you have to code a new data provider for TopMeny instead of using OOTB one, and make that new data provider walking through the sites tree under admin account with RunWithElevatedPrivileges()

Ok, I'll work on that then.  I was hoping there would be an easier way.  Thanks.
