Same menu items, but different position on different pages.

Post by rogue13_13 » Sat Mar 07, 2015 2:43 pm

Hello,

I am attempting to create my second webpage, but am still a novice. What I want to do is have my main menu in the left column only on the home page, and in the Nav position elsewhere in the site. What is the easiest way to do this?

Should I create two separate menus and use the menu alias function? Or should I use different templates for pages with different menu locations? Or something else?

Thanks for any help.

Or.. is this a bad idea for navigability? Should the menu stay consistent for the user?

You don't need several menus nor several templates.

Create new modules for the same menu and publish in different positions and assign to show with certain menu items.

Wow. I was really over-thinking this one. Thank you very much for the simple solution.
