[TYPO3] entryLevel problem

Hi Francois,

Thanks for your reaction.

I have seen many posts wich regard this knowledge of the menu-code "where  
we are". And this was also my first perception. But I have not seen it  
backed up by the documentation, at least not the tsref... and also not  
 from the experiments I have done sofar. Maybe you can point me to the  
right doc?

For what I thought, the entry-level is just a static pointer, telling the  
code where to look in the rootline. ( and giving me the freedom to do  
stupid things ;-)

At least up-the-rootline works for me that way: a sub-subpage on level 4  
gives me the menu exactly as I want: Home from level 0 and subpages from  
level 2.

I will do some more experimenting on going-down-the-rootline.

Anyway, thanks for your suggestion, that will work.

regards, Thomas
