Not so long ago I was in a big search for a solution like this and my search didn't lead to any positive results. I was looking for a dynamic PHP menu that will allow me to play with lots of options and situations. My application required some special code because it's based on member groups and so, my menu was supposed to reflect the permissions attached to each group in part. I was left with some horror solutions and this one explained in this article. Why horror? Well, imagine building a special menu for each group in part. Worst, my software will be sold to people, what if they create 100 groups with various combinations...what's the menu now huh?! The following tutorial is based on my finished work which I'm very pleased with. I'm not just going to paste the code and explain but I will start with a basic example and going up the road of "dynamic"
