Guys

this is probably stupidly simple, but how do I do something different based on what menu item I am in, within the loop.

Basically the recipes drop down is going to be a "mega menu" where as the rest are just normal drop downs.

I cant think how to get around this with built in template controls! Help!

<% control Menu(1) %>	  
                        <% if Children %>
                          <% if $MenuTitle="Recipes" %>
                          
                            
                          
                          <% else %>
                              <li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page">$MenuTitle.XML</a>
                              <ul class="dropdown1">
                              <% control Children %>
                                 <li><a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a></li>
                              <% end_control %>
                              </ul>
                          <% end_if %>
                       <% else %>
                           <li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page">$MenuTitle.XML</a>
                       <% end_if %> 
                        </li>
                   <% end_control %>

Basically <% if $MenuTitle="Recipes" %>, like in your example, should work - if you're at version 3.0.x that is. In 2.4 it should be <% if MenuTitle = Recipes %>...

But maybe I didn't understand you correctly, and you want to know howto create that megadropdown?
