I'm creating a site for a client using Silverstripe, but I'm still unclear about the limitations. I've completed the tutorials and feel that I have a pretty good grip on it, but not quite yet on manipulating the code to extend the site a little.
Menus seem to only work in levels... one menu, and the submenus associated with each menu item. I need a secondary menu that is completely unaffected by the first, but still managable in the CMS. This menu will be the same on every page, regardless of how deep you are in the primary menu structure. I call them my utility links (sections like: contact us, employment, customer login). There are simply too many links to include them all in the primary menu.
How can I create this separate secondary menu, and have it be updatable in the CMS?
Thanks for any replies!
(Also, when navigating the main menu structure, is there a way to dynamically mark both the menu1 link AND the menu2 - submenu section link as "current" at the same time?)
