    Is it possible to add a new page type when creating a new page? I'm asking because I need to build a mega menu dynamically and I need to add something such as [sub menu] to the page type.

    My menu currently looks like this (but static)
    group1                                  group2                                      group3  
    parent      parent                  parent            parent                sub menu
    parent          sub menu              parent       sub menu             option1
    parent              option1                                 option1              option2
    parent              option2                                 option2            parent


    i need to build the menu this way, and if I could change or add the page types, I may be able to do it a little easier, I'm able to get the pages out, and show only the groups, however, when I try to create the mega menu, I have really no way to break it out to the next row within a group.

    any suggestions is greatly appreciated, even using the sitemenu doesn't work correct, no place to break out the groupings/columns

    Hi NewToCMS,

    Can you, please, take a look at this forum thread which contains a code sample on how to create the mega drop-down menu programmatically, I believe you will find the information there useful. If you need any further assistance with the implementation of your dynamic mega drop-down, please let me know, I'll be glad to assist you further.

    Probably should have closed this out or replied as 'I got it working'.

    I created the menu by using the using the Page API, LINQ and adding some options on the 'new page' page to allow for the formatting to be correct. Its actually pretty slick, maybe I'll share it for others to use.
