Hi.
I want to create a 2 level menu hierarchy in my template. My site structure is like this:
* Tutorials
+ Web Development
- PHP
- ASP
+ Desktop Development
- C#
- Java

And if I navigate to the Tutorials page. I want to show a menu Like This: (With Lists)
Web Development
* PHP
* Asp
Desktop Development
* C#
* Java

I tried it like this, but I only get a parse error:

<ul class="rightmenu_toplevel">
<% control Menu(2) %>
<li>$MenuTitle</li>
<ul class="rightmenu_secondlevel">
<% control ChildrenOf($Link) %>
<li><a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a></li>
<% end_control %>
</ul>
<% end_control %>

Error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in C:\srv\temp\silverstripe-cacheD--srv-cl\.cacheD..srv.cl.tutorial.templates.Page.ss on line 214

Any ideas?

Hi,

I had some similar problems to this, but found they were fixed when I checked I had closed tags properly. For example in your code you have a "<ul class="rightmenu_toplevel"> " but no closing </ul> tag.

I hope this helps.

use <% control Children %> instead of <% control ChildrenOf($Link) %>
