Just thought I would put out a request to anyone using this module. I have been having some trouble with it in SS 2.4. It generally works fine, but on some installs the tabs dont load properly (I have attached a screen shot).

I am pretty much banging my head against a wall trying to work it out, any ideas anyone?

I am guessing it is a JS error, as all the functionality works. I would really like to get this fixed, and if anyone has any thoughts, or has encountered this, your input would be handy.

MO: I was able to resolve the "admin page render" issue by adding a line of code to the custommenus config file:

i18n::include_locale_file('custommenus', 'en_US');

Sad, I'm able to resolve the back end but I can get the menu to actually display in my template. Can someone give me a working example of what really goes in the template?

I've tried:

<% control CustomMenu(mymenu) %><a href="$Link">something</a><% end_control %>
<% control CustomMenu('mymenu') %><a href="$Link">something</a><% end_control %>

The first gives me a menu without links. And, it only does one link where I have 5 pages set. The second one just gives me an error. I'm using SS 2.4.2 along with CustomMenus from the trunk

Hey, I'm having a problem with the Custom Menus module on my install of ss 2.4.3 - basically instead of a new menu I get a forum page instead. Is this just me or is anyone else having this problem?

Apparently I wasn't subscribed to this thread, which is a tad annoying when I thought I was!

webmanj: is the menu slug you set called 'mymenu'? What is returned by CustomMenu is a simple DataObjectSet of pages, so you shouldn't have any problems.

Could you possible upload a screenshot of your current 'mymenu' setup in Silverstripe?

Joshuarr: Not sure if this is a 2.4.3 bug. I have seen it before, but thought it was fixed. Are you using checked out trunk from SVN? Also, any other modules installed?

Hmm, tested this in 2.4.3 and seems to be ok for me. Could possible be a conflict with another module?

Just wanted to say thanks for this module, does exactly what it says on the tin and works well.

Could someone give an example of how to set this up in a template.

I get that you need to put

<% control CustomMenu('my-menu-slug') %>what goes here?<% end_control %> 

But I am not sure what to put inside the CustomMenu Control. Can someone give me some samples?
