    I would like to take advantage of the extra <li> lines in the RadMenu but they are not included in the sitefinity navigation menu widget.  I need to have a left to right expanable dropdown with a background image and dropshadow, etc.  To do this, do I create my own menu template and point to it?  How do I get these lines in the dropdpwn?
    <ul class="rmVertical rmGroup rmLevel1" style="">
    <li class="rmTopRight rmTopShadowRight"></li>
    <li class="rmBottomLeft rmBottomShadowLeft"></li>
    <li class="rmBottomRight rmBottomShadowRight"></li>
    <li class="rmTopRight"></li>
    <li class="rmBottomLeft"></li>
    <li class="rmBottomRight"></li>
    <li class="rmTopFix"></li>
    <li class="rmBottomFix"></li>
    <li class="rmItem rmFirst"></li>

    Hi Laura,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    You can take advantage of the list elements you're refering to, if you use RadMenu for your navigation, instead of the build-in Sitefinity navigation (which, actually, is also based on the RadMenu, but has a simple design). Take a look at the example from the RadMenu demos. If you choose this approach, you will need to add the code for your RadMenu in an .ascx file in Visual Studio and then register it as a new control in Administration -> Settings -> Toolboxes... In this case you will have to specify the NavigateUrl property to each RadMenuItem, or in other words - enter the path to each page where a click on a drop-down item would lead. 

    All the best,
    Jen Peleva
