I have a problem getting a "basic" menu to work. I think it's the same problem as described over here:

http://orchard.codeplex.com/discussions/279300

The working is like a lot of sites:

one big horizontal menu with all parents

(left) all the childs of the selected parent, including the name of the parent and offcourse the item itself. So if I select "1" I only like to see "1", "1.1" and "1.2". If I select "1.1" I like to see the same (but "1.1" selected now).

The structure I tried is something like this:

1 - Organisation
1.1 - About
1.2 - Customers
2 - Services
2.1 - Kinds of services

I added the following widgets (Time Machine Theme):

- In the Navigation section: AllItems, Limit levels:1, Cut lower levels
- In the AsideFirst section: SiblingsOnly, Limit levels:0, no cut lower levels

The first widget works fine.
The second one always displays both menu's with all childres when I'm on the first level (like 2). When I'm on the second level (like 2.1) it only displays 2.1 and not his parent (2).

I tried like all combinations, but never get it to work. Or it shows all menu's, or works fine but disappears when a subitem is selected (2.1).

I think I need a parameter like: Only show from level: x (and then enter "2"). Or is it somehow possible in the current version? Or do I need to use another module?

I'll investigate and keep you posted.
