You'll need to use some custom PHP to break that line up.

I suggest you aim at getting something like this working:

class Page extends SiteTree {
 
 ...

 public function getMenuTitleWithNewlines() {
   return $this->addNewlines($this->obj('MenuTitle')->XML());
 }

 function addNewlines($title) {
   return /* $title with &amp; replaced by <br> */;
 }

}

Then in your template, use $MenuTitleWithNewlines instead of $MenuTitle.

Alternatively you can break up the top level menu page to be just SPEECHES and then the child pages to be Student & Management

So it will look like this:

|-Home
|-+About Us
|--Student
|--Management
|-+Branch
|--Local Branch
|--International Branch
|-+Speeches
|--Student
|--Management

An infinitely better way to go, assuming there's no reason why it isn't better.

My suggestion is based on the KISS principle. Why create complicated logic, if you can re-organise the data.

Indeed. I was assuming the poster had his reasons. But it did seem unlikely.

Well, I hope we'll find out.
