    I have a site structure similar to the following:

    --About Us
       --News & Events
          --Latest Events
       --Media Releases

    I'm trying to create navigation whereby the top level navigation (home, bout, products & contact) are visible at all times, along with any parent, sibling AND child pages of the current page. Using the above structure, if I was viewing the News & Events page, I should see every element shown above. If I was on Media Releases, I should see every page above except Latest Events, but I should also see any child pages of Media Releases. If I was on Products, I should see all the top level pages, plus any children of Products. I hope that's easy to follow.

    At present I have been trying to achieve this using Tree Navigation however the options seem limited to achieve my aim. I'm thinking a custom control may be required but I haven't got a clue where to start.

    Any help would be hugely appreciated. Is this kind of navigation structure even possible with Sitefinity??

    Hi Phil,

    I believe RadPanelBar would suit your requirements. You need to add it to an .ascx page in your project and then register it as a user control in Sitefinity. Take a look at the sample below:
    <%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Panel.ascx.cs" Inherits="SitefinityWebApp.Controls.PeterNav" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" %>
    <asp:SiteMapDataSource ID="SiteMapDataSource1" runat="server" ShowStartingNode="false" />
    <telerik:RadPanelBar ID="RadPanelBar1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1">
