    I was wondering if there was a way for me to be able to figure out where I am in the system at all times, i.e. under the third node, two pages down.

    The issue is that our top node's name is changing from time to time, and we have to go into our controls and hard code the path to a file from oldNodeName\test.aspx to newNodeName\test.aspx. So if there was a way to just say (findMyPosition)\test.aspx, it would eliminate a lot of hassling/rebuilding of our application.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Hi Chris Schrader,

    You could get the current page and identify the position in the SiteMap.

    sample code

    // get the page ID from the context.
     var id = this.Context.Items["cmspageid"];
     if (id != null)
         Telerik.Cms.CmsManager mgr = new Telerik.Cms.CmsManager();
         Telerik.Cms.ICmsPage page = (Telerik.Cms.ICmsPage)mgr.GetPage(new Guid(id.ToString()));
         if (page != null)

    Sincerely yours,
    Ivan Dimitrov
