Maybe create 2 navigation groups (left and right). Add the pages you want in the left to the left nav group and do the same for the right. Then render the left nav , logo, right nav.
you would have to specify explicitly which pages go in which nav groups though. Not sure if that’s ok with you.
Does that accomplish what you’re looking for? Maybe I’ve misunderstood your need.... mayb 1 too many 🍺‘S tonight too 😂
