[TYPO3-english] Help changing menu display levels

the number of displayed levels in each menu is set in Typoscript. You 
have to look at the right HMENU element.

First (not sure if you know that already, excuse me if you do), of 
course, you have to find the Typoscript template (which is not to be 
confused with a plain HTML template or the overall idea of a template 
package). It should be in the root page of the site, visible if you use 
the module "Template".

As many TMENU elements as there are in the concerned HMENU, that many 
levels you get.

http://www.typo3wizard.com/en/snippets/menus/text-menu.html has a very 
simple example.

http://wiki.typo3.org/TSref/HMENU has all the options

to get the basics
