Hi,

I hope i'm not asking an absolute noob-question, as it's my first post here while working on my first silverstripe-project. I have rtfm, and tried to Google for an answer, so please don't flame me.

I want to do the following: add a "subtitle" to navigation-items, which can be admin-ed in the CMS. The main $MenuTitle would end up in an <h2>-tag, followed by the subtitle ($MenuSubTitle?).

Thanks in advance!

Hi
You can simply add a new Field to the CMS, by adding it to the $db array and the required input field in the getCMSFields method.
Pretty much like described in Tutorial 2: http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=tutorial:2-extending-a-basic-site#adding_date_and_author_fields

These fields can also be accessed in the navigation. The name (eg. MenuSubTitle) is entirely up to you (as long as it doesn't conflict with existing field-names).

Good luck
