    I want SiteFinity Navigation Menu to generate following output:
    <div id="nav">
    <ul class="menu">
            <li class="menutop menu1"><a href="/tickets" id="tickets" class="menutoplink"><span>Tickets</span>        
              <ul class="menusub">
                <li><a href="/tickets/overview/singletickets.aspx">Single Tickets</a></li>
                <li><a href="/tickets/overview/subscriptionservices.aspx">Subscriptions</a></li>
            <li class="menutop menu2"><a href="/plays" id="plays" class="menutoplink"><span>Plays</span></a>      
             <ul class="menusub">
                <li><a href="/plays/1213seasonataglance.aspx">Season at a Glance</a></li>
                <li><a href="/plays/overview/segerstromstage.aspx">Segerstrom Stage</a></li>

    It is important to surround navigation menu with Div so that styles can be applied. Suggest how it can be done?
    As of now I'm not able to override/remove the default styling of menu and classes applies to it.
    Should I have to develop custom navigation or I can provide path to custom layout control?

    Please provide links for any resources available. Any help will be appreciated.

    Hello Nilesh,

    Thank you for using Sitefinity!

    Take a look at this blog post detailing how to design, theme, and apply a custom navigation template to Sitefinity. It should answer all your questions and it's luckily a fairly simple process once you get the hang of it!

    Let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns!


    All the best,

    Around here, we use a custom solution for navigation; it's called CleanNav. It's allows quite a bit of customization and produces mark up that's quite similar to what you're looking for.
