I have a custom menu with breadcrumbs, however I need 1 additional option based on the user logged in. What I am trying to accomplish is for the public site users to have a menu of 5 items, and the logged in users will get a menu of 6 items. The additional menu will contain additional page links that public users should not see or have access to.

Thanks in advance!

Hi. You'll need to create 2 menus. One will be for Anonymous (public) and one will be for Authenticated (logged in) users.

  1. Add your new public menu to the navigation zone of the Anonymous layer.
  2. Add your new logged in menu to the navigation zone of the Authenticated layer.
