    Customizing Menu Link to this post

    I am in the process of migrating a static PHP based site + Wordpress to SilverStripe.

    In the static pages, we customize the header itself. We have two types of logins. Customers and Affiliates.

    In the static site today, we do something like this:

    <? require("_header_top.html"); ?>
    <? if (isset($display_affiliate_link) && $display_affiliate_link == true) {
    require("_header_middle_affiliate.html");
    } else {
    require("_header_middle.html");
    } ?>
    <? require("_header_bottom.html"); ?>

    This is the only difference in the Navigation menu between the affiliate and customer sections.

    I tried going down the different layout path. But I don't prefer it as the layouts look 99% the same except for this one.

    I tried the following hack, which works, but I don't like it at all.

    <% if MenuTitle = Affiliate %>
    <a href="/affiliate_login>affiliate login</a>
    <% end_if %>
    <a href="/subscriber_login>subscriber login</a>

    Any suggestion on how I can achieve this more elegantly or a better recommended way to implement this?

    Vikram also asked this on StackOverflow:

    Vikram, did you figure this out? It was a while back now but I'm going through a few unanswered questions, trying to make sure they got answered.
