I created a simple Sitefinity control that allows you to select a page in your site map and the control will return links to the selected page's children pages.

Sitefinity comes with several top-level navigation controls.  All of these controls start at the root of the web site and offer tabs, trees, or menus to drill-down from there.

This "Child Links" control lets you chose the starting place and only returns links to its children. So, for example, let's say you have the following pages created in your site map:
  • + Colors
  • Red
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Yellow


If we wanted to return links to only the child pages of "Color" we could simply point the "Child Links" control at the "Colors" page.  The child links will be created automatically.  If you ever add or remove pages, the "Child Links" control will automatically be updated.  No more static links!
