Dynamic menu sets in a template

Originally Said By: Eric Mittman
  I'm having a little difficulty understanding your current scenario. When it comes to setting a session variable based on a value in a record for a user this is a feature of Security Assist. In the authenticate user server behavior on the last step you can configure session variables based on the values for that users record. So if you store the UserGroup value in the user's record then you can have this value stored in a session variable on login. You get to name this session variable yourself so you can use the one from your example.

You could then conditionally show, or hide areas of the navigation or have entirely different navigation depending on the value of this session variable.  

The session variable is done. I'm having trouble getting entirely different navigation to show based on the value. How can this be done (in PHP) as part of a template, so that it can be applied to many pages across a website. I tried a couple of options, but they seem to show as body text rather than as menus. I know that I'm likely to just be missing some basic setting or command in the code.
