Brief: On the example URL I have a Static orange menu using the DNN HTML module. I would like to recreate this menu for all pages on the site so that the menu is dynamically updated from the CMS instead of having to be updated manually in the HTML.
The blue tree menu below it is the DDR Menu with TreeView template.
Issue: By default the menu/template is showing the main parent menu links with private markets highlighted as the active menu. I can't figure out how/where in the template to specify that this menu should do the following:
The existing template is located here: http://bit.ly/1MH2fgW
The DDR Menu guide doesn't comprehensively tell me how to create a template so any help would be appreciated.
You should spend some time reading the DNN Wiki pages related to the DDR menu. That, coupled with some experimentation should give you a really good understanding of how it all works.
Use the module version of the DDR menu, and drop it on an empty page. Then you can play around with the NodeSelector parameter to see how it determines which pages are shown. Start with that empty and you should get all pages. Move on from there.
I highly recommend using the ULTokens template for your explorations. You'll get a nice UL showing the selected pages.
You can also use the DumpXml template to show exactly what is available to the templates.
Other attributes that are helpful are IncludeNodes and Exclude nodes.
I'n most cases, you won't need to create your own template. Restyling ULTokens or SuperFish is often enough. The MegaMenu template is also approachable.
I'm happy to answer other questions.
