Navigation to show siblings and children of current page

Navigation to show siblings and children of current page

Navigation to show siblings and children of current page

(OP)
We have a fairly large wordpress website with a navigation area down the left.
On the homepage we want to show the top level pages only.
On one of the top level pages, we want to show the top level and the children of the page we are in
As you go deeper into the site it still needs to show the very top level but drill down to just that sections siglings and children.

Did I explain that very well?

I'll try a demo

Here is an example site structure

top 1
top 2
top 2 sub 1
top 2 sub 2
top 2 sub 3
top 3
top 3 sub 1
top 3 sub 1 subsub 1
top 3 sub 1 subsub 2
top 3 sub 2
top 4
top 5
top 5 sub 1
top 5 sub 2

Examples

If you were browsing the homepage you would see

top 1
top 2
top 3
top 4
top 5

Browsing top 2 sub 1

top 1
top 2
top 2 sub 1
top 2 sub 2
top 2 sub 3
top 3
top 4
top 5

Browsing top 3 sub 1

top 1
top 2
top 3
top 3 sub 1
top 3 sub 1 subsub 1
top 3 sub 1 subsub 2
top 3 sub 2
top 4
top 5

Browsing top 3 sub 1 subsub 2

top 1
top 2
top 3
top 3 sub 1
top 3 sub 1 subsub 1
top 3 sub 1 subsub 2
top 3 sub 2
top 4
top 5

I really hope that this makes sense, it's hard to explain in words.

I'm struggling with the code for this, every time I think I have cracked it the menu shows something random. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Thanks for the recommendation, I can't configure it to work as I need it to from the four shortcodes

RE: Navigation to show siblings and children of current page

build some custom shortcodes that engage that plugin then. wordpress is just php - you can get it to do anything you could do in non-framework php.
