Hey there!
I need some help with a second menu. For my new project, I need a second navigation bar with some special pages like "about", "jobs" or whatever. Until now, I always made the ul static within the template so that it wasn't controlled by the system. Then I unchecked the "show up in menus" button in the backend. Actually I need translations now, so the title of the links need to change between German and English. The static method doesn't work for that because I can't get the page titles out of the database based on the current selected language.
These pages aren't children of the others so a normal "SecondLevelNavigation" isn't needed. Is it possible to do what I need? (Second Root Page on my SiteTree or someting like that?).

I solved the problem by using the trunk build of the CustomMenus Module. It didn't work for the first time I installed it, I had to write the titles of the backend-tabs into the code (they were missing before) so it didn't show up correctly.

Because the Custom-Menus Module seems to make more and more problems when switching the language on a page I decided to change my top-menu within the code. To do so, I'm checking the current language with

<% if Locale = de_DE %>

and changing the HTML code within the if-clause.
