Hello Anthony,

We are using the Inventua Sidemenu for a long time. A very nice and handy DNN module!
Earlier we upgraded our DNN site from 4.8.4. to 5.1.0.  successfully, but now we have some problems with the SideMenu (the beta version we have downloaded from
In some cases the new site menu doesn’t show any subpages.
Our head menu DNN look as follows:
Under the menu PROJECTEN we have two DNN submenu’s:                 > Belastingdienst
                                                                                                               > Douane
                                                                                                                    > Project ODI
                                                                                                                            >subpage 1
                                                                                                                             >subpage 2
                                                                                                                     > Other project
To the page Douane we have placed the DNN links module with links to different project pages.
One of those project pages is called ODI. This project has several subpages below.  
In the page settings of the project head page ODI the checkbox ‘Include in menu’ is set to false, because the user is selecting a project by using the DNN Link module (not by DNN-menu).
The site menu module is placed to the head page ODI, but it doesn’t display the subpages of the ODI-project. The module setting ‘Disregard Hidden flag is set to true’.
When we set the checkbox ‘Include in menu’ to true, it works fine!
In version DNN 4 this construction works OK.
Can you please help us!
Thanks for your service and time.

I'm having the same problem: We were using SideMenu to display sub-pages of pages that are not displayed in the main navigation (i.e. "inlude in menu" is set to false). To do this, we simply set the "disregard hidden flag" option to true in the SideMenu settings.

This worked fine with previous versions of SideMenu. However, after upgrading to DNN 5.1 and Inventua SideMenu 5.0.1 beta, this no longer works. SideMenu will only display links when the Source node is included in the main DNN menu (i.e. "include in menu" is true).

Is this by design, or a posible bug? Being able to display pages that are not in the DNN menu is the main reason we purchased SideMenu - we prefer navigation to be on the left rather than in drop-down menus along the top.
