How do you produce a navigation bar containing the sections and subsection but excluding the subsubsections? I'm using PaloAlto theme.

You can set the beamer templates subsubsection in sidebar and subsubsection in sidebar shaded so that they don't insert the subsubsection title:


\setbeamertemplate{subsubsection in sidebar}
\setbeamertemplate{subsubsection in sidebar shaded}


\section{test section one}
\subsection{test subsection one}
\subsubsection{test subsubsection one}
\subsubsection{test subsubsection teo}
\section{test section two}
\subsection{test subsection two}


Here's the first frame of the resulting document, showing the sidebar without the subsubsection titles:
