A page without left side menu

Hi,

I've got a skin where in left pane I have menu ( really a 2nd level submenu ). The thing is that I would like to create a page without menu at all.

I mean that I would like to have a horizontal menu on it and no 2nd level submenu visible in left pane.

Is it possible?

 

Thanks,

Przemek

Re: A page without left side menu

There has been some talk on this issue lately. I believe you basically have two options. You can put the code for the left nav in a custom feature (it's extrememely simple to do) and add it to pages where you want it to display and leave it off of pages where not. This is a little inconvenient if you have only few pages where you don't want it. The other option is to duplicate your skin and leave it off the second one and use that skin when you don't want the left nav. You then have to update both skins when you make changes but it's not too big a deal if you aren't frequently changing your skin.

Thanks for the answer.

I think I'll go with 2 skins.

Re: A page without left side menu

Take a look at the "Example Scenarios..." on this page: http://www.mojoportal.com/understanding-the-styleconfig-file.aspx. Following the guidelines listed there, you should be able to create a second skin that is largely reliant on the main skin. The advantage of this is that you don't have to update two skins all the time.

Hope this helps,
Joe D.
