I've just looked at the connector pages in XOT2.1 and they look quite functional and useful. I'm not clear however on this aspect of using them.

Let's say I've got a 'submenu' page with 4 buttons on it. When the user clicks a button I want to connect them to a specific set of 2 or 3 pages. I can do this with the connector, when I get to the destination page I can turn on/off the navigation buttons and force them to click a link to go back to the 'submenu'.

The problem is however, when they want to go previous/next to this submenu page, how do I avoid taking them to the very pages they've already viewed? They are now back to sequential-linear paging...how do I 'skip' the pages the submenu took them to? Is there some way I can wire the 'Next' button on the submenu page to 'skip' ahead to page 'x'?

I'm sure there is a way that I'm obviously missing.

Thanks

Doh! I've just come across the 'Menu Connector Page Guide' and this is making more sense... the LO 'Historic' navigation must be selected. Sorry for cluttering up the forum... I'll do some more reading and playing with this.
