Hi,
I want to have more than 1 menue blocks on my pages. Currently it is so, when I make a new Page, and then add subsites the menu in the left looks this way:

Page titel
-Subsite1
-Subsite2
-Subsite3

How is it able to make menues which look so:

General
-Subsite1
-Subsite2
-Subsite3

Article Categorys
-Subsite4
-Subsite5
-Subsite6

So, you see on the top of the menue souldn´t be the Title Name of the Page but a name I can enter for this navigation block.
And the most improtant thing is, on this page should be more than one navigation block.

So, it is able to create "folders" under a site, and then store subpages in them? So this way it would be possible to create much better navigations.
Perhaps, if it is not able to make such navigations now, how do you think about to improve the navigation this way in future releases of SilverStripe? I think this would make SilverStripe much better.

This you can do by adding a custom field as described in:

http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tutorial:2-extending-a-basic-site

(See the heading 'Adding date and author fields', under which it is described how to add custom fields, you can do this for whatever page.)
