However, I do want these links to come through via a Mambo menu. I can assign these 3 pages to a mambo menu (e.g. "otherlinks_menu") - the question is, how do I display them on my index.php page?
Should I do this by doing a SELECT on the database where menu = "otherlinks_menu" ? And then I can display the items that fall under it?
If so, what SQL should I use and how do I execute this SQL? e.g. is it something like:
$query = "SELECT * FROM #__menu WHERE menutype='otherlinks_menu' ORDER BY ordering";
$database->setQuery( $query );
And then I can use mysql fetcharray functions to retrieve the data?
