Cogworks - Flexible Navigation


This is a simple package that provides a flexible and customisable navigation macro.

It's most common use case would be to provide a top navigation (which would list out all pages at a certain level) and an expanding sub navigation (which would list all sub pages of a page, then as the user selects further children the sub navigation would expand)

This type of navigation can be seen here:


Example macro tag for a top navigation:

<umbraco:Macro startingLevel="1" recurse="0" selectBranches="1" maxMenuDepth="1" ulBaseClass="horizontal" branchClass="branch" selectedClass="selected" securityTrimming="1" Alias="[COG]Navigation" runat="server"></umbraco:Macro>

Example macro tag for a sub navigation:

<umbraco:Macro startingLevel="2" recurse="1" selectBranches="1" maxMenuDepth="999" ulBaseClass="vertical" branchClass="branch" selectedClass="selected" securityTrimming="1"  Alias="[COG]Navigation" runat="server"></umbraco:Macro>
