Menu Block

Module Type: 
Sitewide Tags: 

Menu Block Module provides configurable blocks of menu trees starting with any level of any menu. Menu Block Module allows you to build your architecture using one menu – the Main Menu. This eliminates the need to create sub menus for each of the main areas on your site and then configure each blocks to appear on the correct pages. With the Menu Block Module, you only need to create a Menu Block and assign it to the region where you want the block to display. Sub menus are then automatically created as the pages are added to the menu hierarchy.

Creating a Menu Block

Instead of creating new Menus for each of your new “buckets”, you create one Menu Block and the sub-menus are built based on your Main Menu Hierarchy for each “bucket”.
