Here's the menu I have using the "dual" option (on any page other than the Top Ancestor page, which behaves as I want, only showing the sub items/sub sub items):

-Top Ancestor Item

---Sub Item

------Sub Sub Item

---Sub Item

------Sub Sub Item

I don't want the "Top Ancestor Item" to show up when on any of the sub item or sub sub item pages, since I already have it in my horizontal top menu; is there any way to achieve this built in? If not, could I tweak something to get it working like that?

Also, I noticed that the "Top Ancestor" (-4) option works like I want in the TopMenu module; that is, it displays the sub items of the top ancestor and not the top ancestor itself. However, I need to be able to see the sub sub items as well, and the TopMenu module doesn't show those.

Hi Lee,

Sorry, there's no way to suppress the top ancestor using the "dual" option. The only way that might work is to set the "top ancestor" property dynamically in skin code.

DNN is proving to be a much bigger headache than I could have imagined. Thanks for the quick reply though, it's much appreciated.
