description: Left menu with indexpage in it.

Example

Here is a hack code for left menu override, which will add indexpage as first item in menu.
Its very strange its not there to begin with - almost all sites need it.

<div id="leftmenu">
<div id="leftmenu-design">
 
<h3 class="hide">{"Left menu"|i18n("design/base")}</h3>
 
{let docs=treemenu( $module_result.path,
                    is_set( $module_result.node_id )|choose( 2, $module_result.node_id ),
                    ezini( 'MenuContentSettings', 'LeftIdentifierList', 'menu.ini' ),
                    0, 5 )
                    depth=1
                    last_level=0
                    root_node=fetch( content, node, hash( node_id, 2 ) )
                    root_node_array=array( hash('id', $root_node.node_id,
