Hi,
I'm creating a skin for a DotNetNuke website that contains 2 menus. One horizontal menu just below the header and one vertical menu in the sidebar. Both menus have to be different but when I import this skin into dotnetnuke and create pages...if I check off the "Include on Menu" option, it appears on both menus but I only want it to appear on the sidebar menu. Is there a way aroung this? Do I just have to remove my horizontal menu from my skin and create a module for it in dotnetnuke?

Thanks

Artisteer is using the official DotNetNuke menu module called DDR. You can adapt the skin object very easy if the vertical menu should only display the sub pages. Just add: NodeSelector="+0,0,0"

More info: http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Resources/Wiki/Page/DDRMenu-reference-guide.aspx#NodeSelector_1

Hello,

Silvio is quite right.

Just to provide some additional details: you should open the Artisteer generated page.ascx file for edit and add NodeSelector option to your vertical menu.

For example:
<dnn:MENU NodeSelector="CurrentChildren" MenuStyle="VMenu" runat="server"></dnn:MENU>
