Hi, I am new to DNN but have been reading up as much as I can.

I have recently purchased the DNNGo Unlimited DNN Theme 048 (V4.1.0) and I am trying to configure the menu to my needs. I have put in a support ticket with DNNGo to help with this, but I may switch to the DDRMenu if I can’t get the DNNGo menu to work the way I need it to.

My page structure:

  • Parent1
    • Child1
      • Grandchild1
      • Grandchild2
  • Parent2
    • Child2a
    • Child2b
      • Grandchild2b
      • Grandchild2b
      • Grandchild2b
    • Child2c
  • Parent3
    • Child3a
      • Grandchild3a
      • Grandchild3a
      • Grandchild3a
    • Child3b
      • Grandchild3b
      • Grandchild3b
      • Grandchild3b
    • Child3c
  • Parent4 

When I am on the Parent1 page it shows all the parent links and then when I rollover each parent link it shows the children links under them. This part works fine.

What I need is, when I go to the Parent3 page I only want to show all the Child links from Parent3 in the main menu area and then rollover them to show the Grandchild links. I will have a button in the header to return to the Parent1 page to show all the Parent links again. It would be like a new menu structure when I go to the Parent3 page, not showing anything but the Child links and their Children, not any of the higher level main Parent links. 

The Parent3 page would only show this in the main menu area: (note: I would put a button to get back to the Parent1 page)

  • Child3a
    • Grandchild3a
    • Grandchild3a
    • Grandchild3a
  • Child3b
    • Grandchild3b
    • Grandchild3b
    • Grandchild3b
  • Child3c

My old skin uses an old menu to accomplish this using ShowOnlyCurrent and PagesToExclude. See below:

<dnn:RadPanelbar runat=“server" id="dnnPanelbar" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" ShowOnlyCurrent="179"  Skinpath="/Portals/_default/Skins/main/" Skin="main" PagesToExclude="Submenu"/>

Can I accomplish this in the same way using the DNNGo menu or the DDRMenu? Do I need to put some kind of ShowOnlyCurrent or PagesToExclude in one or both of these lines to make it work?

These lines are from within the aspx pages in the DNNGo theme:

<dnn:GOMENU runat=“server” id="dnnGOMENU2" Effect="MultiMenu" ViewLevel="0" />

<dnn:MEGAMENU runat=“server" id="MEGAMENU1" Effect="Hslide" ViewLevel="0" ShowUI="Extension" />

This line is from within one of the aspx pages of the DarkKnight theme: (This would be if I use the DDRMenu instead of the DNNGo menu)
<dnn:MENU MenuStyle=“DNNStandard" runat="server"></dnn:MENU>

Thanks,
Craig

I have not used the DNNGo Menu. But this is definitely something that can be done with the DDR Menu.
