Hopefully some wise Drupal guru will be able to help me with this one.

I'm using menu and menu block to output a side menu in Drupal 7. Using Panelizer, on a basic page I can customize display and add a view pane (Case study: Teaser), which will display a list of case study teasers:

enter image description here

I can add a case study content type, which provides a menu link. The problem is over time there will likely be hundreds of case studies, and it will look unwieldly to have hundrens of children/sub-pages in the menu.

I could list the links and disable them from the menu (and also keep the breadcrumb path): enter image description here

However, various admin and editors will be using this, so ideally I'd like some functionality whereby sub-pages do not appeaer in the menu when a Case Study content type is used, but the breadcrumb path is still shown: enter image description here

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be eternally grateful :)


If you don't need the case studies to appear in the secondary nav/sidebar menu, you could try using the Path Breadcrumbs module to set custom rules for any of the following scenarios:

  • all "Case Study" content resides in a fixed hierarchy
  • "Case Study" content with a specific tag goes in a fixed hierarchy
  • "Case Study" content breadcrumbs are defined by url alias/path that reflects parent pages.

The module is rather flexible in the rulesets you can define.

  • Thank you @anson-w-han I'll try this when I'm back at work after Christmas.

  • Hi @anson-w-han, I've tried adding an argument and selection rule, but can't figure out how to set custom rule for all "Case Study" content resides in a fixed hierarchy. Should I be able to find 'content type' to choose the argument?
