      We believe the following are the limitations on what can be done with the menu system on this template but want to confirm we're not missing something. Can you confirm our assumptions and if we are off base, let us know where to find the documents explaining "how to" do it?

      * The main menu position isn?t really a module position in the traditional sense, the site menu is hard coded in the menu position and it cannot be replaced with a different menu from another module by publishing to the "menu" position.

      * If you put a menu elsewhere, it can only be tire accordion menu. The accordion menu is a menu for a sidebar as it does not have a horizontal display mode.[/li]

    * This template only allows use of the built in main menu, the  standard Joomla menu or the S5 accordion menu and does not allow any 3rd part ones like CKmenu.[/li][/list]

    If our assumptions are correct, are there any s5 templates that have a module position for a menu that does not use this 'baked in main menu' strategy?

    Thank you for your help

    Correct all our templates use the built in flex menu.

    Correct its not a position but built in. You could custom code a module position to be in place of this menu to use any other menu system you desire.

    Correct, unless you use a 3rd party menu

    We haven't tested but the only thing that would prohibit it would be JavaScript conflictions with the menu.
