Milk, I've created a submenu for the Info page. Can you tell me how to include it in the new pages when I create them?

in the "Menu settings" section (click it to make it JS appear) between the title and body on the the new Page creation page.

I'm not getting how that bit works. Isn't it just for fixing the page's context within a menu that's already displayed?

I want to know how to display a new menu within the new page.

I've had a search around and can't find anything that actually makes sense to me. The way Drupal's menus work is alien to anything I've done before, so I might need an idiot-proof introduction to how it works. Maybe before/after the BTS meeting on Thurs?

this can be done using panels 3. i've set a test panel page up @ http://theforest.org.uk/infotest

panels 3 screencast
podcast with views/panels author

(the front page is a panel node - i need to shift this to being a panel page content item as they have a bit more power)

i'm thinking we can use jquery tabs to way to display info subpages;

http://jquery.flowmediadesign.com/node/9
http://stilbuero.de/jquery/tabs_3/

http://wimleers.com/demo

http://drupal.org/project/panels_tabs

n.b. also shiny; http://www.ilovecolors.com.ar/jquery-tabs/

i wish i had more time to look into this at the moment.
