..but something my brain won't let me answer. I'm sure the answer is staring me in the face. I'm writing a plugin which presents a navigation dropdown menu. The options on that menu will all be searches but with different parameters. How do I pass the value of which menu item was selected into the my controller > function to decide what to do. I'm not talking if or switch statements, I mean actually passing that value to the function. For the menu I've created a class/listener that listens for navigation_tabs, and adds the menu on via a template. At the moment, the links for each <li> are null, but that ties into my question. I have a feeling the answer is embarrassingly simple. BTW the output of each menu choice will be the same, it will be a list of threads as a search result.
