I am using cake_184.108.40.20692-rc3 for my application.
I want to display top menu links in all pages(.ctp).
Then, how can i do this.

you should creat a file 'default.ctp' in folder app/view/layout/

You can use element to include your menu into default.ctp layout
Create file for example: menu.ctp with your menu links and place it into views -> element folder
then write [PHP] echo $this->element('menu');[/PHP] in your default.ctp layout
You can even cache your element menu
Check this out:http://book.cakephp.org/view/97/Elements

Thanks for replying.
I am created element menu.ctp.
At there Suppose i write code:
|<?php e($html->link('Administrators', '/Admins/index'));?>|
<?php e($html->link('Section Management', '/Sections/index'));?>|
<?php e($html->link('UserType Management', '/UserTypes/index'));?>|
<?php e($html->link('Domain Management', '/Domains/index'));?>|
But currently this is static.
But i want to fetch them from database.
So where i should write code for that.
For example: for add.ctp i write code in add action of related controller.
So i can set view for add.ctp.
But for menu.ctp (element) from where i can set that view.
And also tell me $content_for_layout comes from where?
Thanks For Replying.
Again wait 4 reply.
