Hi,

is there an easy way to build a tree menu like this :

<ul>
    <li><a href="">Section 1</a>
        <ul>
            <li><a href="">Section 1.1</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Section 1.2</a></li>
        </ul>
    </li>
    <li><a href="">Section 2</a></li>
    ............
</ul>

from site tree content

yes this can be done,

use the following code


<ul>
<% control Menu(1) %>

    <li><a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a></li>
    
    <% if Menu(2) %>
        <ul>
        <% control Menu(2) %>


             <li><a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a></li>
             <% if Children %>
               <ul>
               <% control Children %>

                    <li><a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a></li>

               <% end_control %>
               <ul>
             <% end_if %>

        <% end_control %>


        </ul>



    <% end_if %>


<% end_control %>
</ul>

Thanks, here is my working script :

<ul id ="navigation">
 	<% control Menu(1) %>	  
  		<li class="$LinkingMode navigation_$iteratorPos"><a href="$Link" title="$Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode">$MenuTitle.XML</a>
  		     <% if Children %>
                    <ul>
                        <% control Children %>
                            <li><a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a></li>
                        <% end_control %>
                    </ul>
             <% end_if %>
  		</li>
   	<% end_control %>
</ul>

Yes :)

I think there's no way to build a recursive tree with .ss, isn't it?

while($children){....

Hi,

I am trying to do the same and to use ddsmoothmenu.
I would like to go as deep as the tree is.
But it seems to be impossible to call a template recursively, isn't it ?

Menu.ss

<ul>
    <% control Menu(1) %>
    <li>
      <a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a>
      <% include _Menu %>
    </li>
    <% end_control %>
</ul>

_Menu.ss

<% if Children %>
  <ul>
    <% control Children %>
      <li>
        <a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a>
        <% include _Menu %>
      </li>
    <% end_control %>
  </ul>
<% end_if %>

<% include _Menu %> in _Menu.ss does not work.
And what if IK would like to pass an argument like the level ?
<% include _Menu(level++) %>

Thanks
