I have a drop down menu. With one of the menu items, i don't want the second menu to drop down. I can solve this by selecting the 'don't show in menu' checkbox.

However i also have a sidebar menu(2) where I DO want these second level items to be visible. If i select the checkbox as above, they also disappear from the sidebar menu.

Is there any way that i can not have them displayed on the header drop down menu but do have them displayed in the sidebox?

Many thanks.

if you tick off the Show in menus option you will not get them in the navigations anyway. you can do something to get the second level stuff on the website, add a function similar to this on your mysite/Page.php

function SecodLevelPages(){
    return DataObject::get("Page","ParentID = [the id of your main page]")

you can get the results through a .ss file with the following.

<% control SecondLevelPages %>
<li><a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a></li>
<% end_control %>

I hope this will help you.
