I've not tackled this one and am unsure of how to start, but I am looking to grab logos from the assets folder in the CMS and display the navigation using the logos/links.

Anyone have any ideas on how to implement this?

Here is an example of a silverstripe site that a member here has (Lemon8):

I love the way the brand logos act as the nav, and would like to do something similar...

I would just add an image field to each page, then it becomes an object of that page so in your menu tag you can access it via a variable.

I believe the 'extending' tutorial has a part on adding images to a staff's page. You can use the same type of concept. It would be pretty easy.

Hi LeeUmm!

When you say add an image field, do you mean using TinyMCE or are you meaning in the template code?

Just curious if there is a smart way to do that without having to do alot of manual entry...

Thanks Fuzz10 and LeeUmm for pointing me to some great info!

I'll take a look at the tutorial and see if I can figure this out.
