I have googled this topic front and backwords and have not found a solution. The problem looks like this.
I'm working with static-pages only.
I have a top menu with depth=1 so it displays only the top level of menu.
I have a menu on the side to display only the further levels so therefore it looks like this :
$theid = gettheid();
And I get a list I want but the problem is I only get it when I'm in the top page and when I go into one of the children the menu dissappears - logic.
I want to menu to stay the same in all further levels of children so I would need something called top_page_id :D
Any idea on how to do this would be GREAT!
