Hello

I have a vertical menu with the level 1 pages displayed.
When you click on a page that has children it should display them.
See example.

So i thought this code should do the trick, but it doesn't do anything. I'm only seeing level 1.

In page.php I have enabled children.

   static $allowed_children = array('Page');

<ul>
 	<% control Menu(1) %>	  
  		<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle.XML</span></a></li>
		
		<% if Menu(2) %>
			<ul id="Menu2">
				<% control Menu(2) %>			
					<li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="Go to the &quot;{$Title}&quot; page">$MenuTitle.XML</a></li>
				<% end_control %>
			</ul>
		<% end_if %> 
				
   	<% end_control %>
		

</ul>

Ok solved it with a bit of puzzling and the help of Sidebar.ss, but why does it need to be like this:

<ul>
 	<% control Menu(1) %>	  
  		<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle.XML</span></a></li>
		
		<% if LinkOrSection = section %>
			<% control Children %>
				<ul id="Menu2">
						<li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="Go to the &quot;{$Title}&quot; page">$MenuTitle.XML</a></li>
				</ul>
			<% end_control %>
		<% end_if %>
		
   	<% end_control %>


</ul>
