    • there was a custom menu and submenu plugin too but it got deleted

    • Thanks iionly and Speedysnail6, I downloaded both the plugins and am investigating them. I am currently using the Menu Builder suggested by iionly and it seems that it would work great for my purposes. I have a follow up question - where does the new generated code reside ? For example I added a new submenu named "FOO" under an existing parent  menu. However when I search for "FOO" in the mod directory, no file seems to be having the word "FOO". So where is the information about these newly created submenu items stored actually ?

    • The menu config is safed in the database of the site. Without looking more detailed at the code I can't say how exactly the structure of the menu is safed. I guess you might asking regarding the possibility to port the menu to another site after setting it up on a test/development site. Without some export/import functionality implemented in the plugin this might not be possible unfortunately. Maybe this would be a suggestion to make to the plugin developer in case it's needed. Maybe Jeroen find the time to enhance the plugin at some time.
