I want to use images instead of text in main menu.

I add:

class Page extends SiteTree
   static $db = array(
   static $has_one = array(
      'MenuImg' => 'Image'


function getCMSFields()
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Images", new ImageField('MenuImg','Menu image'));


than attach my image for menu.

but i can't get how to use it in my template.

i use <% control Menu(1) %> to get info about menu ($Title, $Content) but there is no $MenuImg there.

how i can use $MenuImg in my templates?

So you've put $MenuImg in your template? It should work eg:

<% control Menu(1) %>
<% if MenuImg %>
<% else %>
<!-- debug: menu image missing for page $Title -->
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>
