From metadata

If you have a metadata field that is a link type, you can set up different home pages depending on where the visitor is on the website. So you can use the same menu but show different menus, depending on where you are in the structure. For example, if you have a top menu with eight different selections and you want the left hand menu to appear based on the option selected in the top menu.

Follow these steps:
1. Set up a metadata definition of the Link type on your website. Rename it Menu selection for example.

2. Mark the pages from which the menu will appear. For example, to display the menu based on the "Products" page. Follow these steps:

  • Select the Products page in the Navigator.
  • Publish the page and on the Metadata tab , find the metadata field Menu selection.
  • Untick "Inherit value" and browse to the Products page.
Menu start

3. In the menu, select option Use start page from Metadata. Designate the metadata field you created under point 1.

4. Done!
