I want to build a custom quicklinks section on my website that displays all the pages on the site and their heirarchy.  I've done some research online to find some sample code, but cannot find anything that fits thus far.  Perhaps I am looking in the wrong place.

i want it to look like the following

parent page   parent page   parent page  parent page
child               child               child              child
child               child               child               child
etc. as exists.

can someone point me in the right direction?

Hi axessJosh,

This functionality already exists as Custom Menus.  Are you looking to do something different?

Will it automatically inherit the heirarchy structure?

It should, but you can also drag and drop pages into parent/child relationships from the interface.

yep, i am playing with it now.

hopefully final question here, where is the code to use to place the menu in a specific spot?  I have a javascript pull down area that reveals the menu when clicked.

>> didnt inherit hierarchy

Meaning you had to manually re-create it from the Menu interface?

Yep, had to create it in the menu interface.  Then had to create CSS styles to get it to position into separate menus based on parent pages.  Thanks for the direction!
