    Morning,

    I am looking to build some menus into my sitefinity site but need some help. I'm fairly new to Sitefinity in general so bear with me.

    I have a basic 3 column site and I want the menu's on the right and left side to follow a specific css but I'm having no luck.

    My question is, which menu should I go with? RadMenu or Site Menu? The menu should consist of multiple levels and I want the links to change depending on the page they are one.

    Somthing like this:

    <div id="left">
                <div id="left_menu">
                    <div class="nav_title">
                        <div class="nav_text">Wing Information</div>
                    </div>
                        <div class="nav">
                            <ul>
                                <li class="nav_area"><a href="#">Command Team</a></li>
                                    <ul class="sub-level">
                                        <li><a href="Home/wcmdr.aspx">Wing Commander</a></li>
                                        <li><a href="/Home/wchief.aspx">Wing Chief</a></li>
                                    </ul>
                                <li class="nav_area"><a href="#">Administration</a>
                                    <ul class="sub-level">
                                        <li><a href="eap.aspx">EAP</a></li>

    Hello Chris,

    You can use SiteMenu control. Drop it on a page, open it for editing and set StartFromCurrentNode property to true. This indicates the sitemap whether the site map node tree is retrieved using the node that represents the current page.

    Best wishes,
