Hi Jimmy and Justin (Sorry Garry)
No, it's not the case that the home page link gets added unless you check a box for it not to be added. The attached image shows my precise settings.
So this does mean that unless you know that you have to add a Homepage as a child of 'Home Page' and add it while still in the GUI, it's goinf to be bothersome having to edit the code later on.
Also, please could you let me know how to change the menu (in the CSSMenuWriter GUI) so that it doesn't put a site-root relative forward slash at the beginning of each link? Every time I delete them Sculptor/menuwriter immediately puts them back in again.
Also please would someone address post #4?
