Wrapping the call to the Menu model get() in a try catch. #5

merged 1 commit into from

This isn't a major issue - more of a gripe.

When setting up versions of sites that use a menu, any templates that attempt to load a menu will throw DoesNotExist exception. This just bypasses that exception by returning [] so that we can get a site up and running and leave the managers to create and build menus.

Hope that makes sense.
