I've tried Google - but maybe I just can't word this question correctly to get an answer.
I want my top-level category pages to change the main menu to only show the current category. So, for example, say I have a site selling PC Software and Mac Software. If the user goes to "site.com", then the main menu should have two entries, "PC Software" and "Mac Software", and the subcategories below that.
But if the user is at "site.com/pc", then I want the main menu to show the subcategories of PC Software. So the main menu categories might be "Games", "Utilities", "Productivity", "Graphics", etc. Same thing at "site.com/mac".
Any other pages in the "/pc" section would have that same main menu.
I know I could do this by making them in to separate stores, but there are other reasons I'd prefer not to, if possible. I want it to function as one store, with just the main menu changed.
