overwrite or remove Menu(2) item




18 November 2008 at 12:50pm 126 Posts


I would like to overwrite a Menu(2) item in a Page_Controller method.

Here is the scenario: I added a search form as described in [url][/url] and added the search results template to /my_template/templates/Layout/

As usual all works well, but my second level navigation Menu(2) now displays a link to "Page Not Found", probably because the results page is a function but not part of the site tree so Silverstripe thinks the page does not exist.

I hope this makes sense.

I thought the best way to avoid this incorrect second level link is to either completely remove the link or replace it - preferably in the function that gets the search results.

Maybe there is another easy way that does not require to changes to the template. Any hint is highly appreciated.
