Advanced menu management plugin? (8 posts)

    I'm trying to create a basic CMS from WP, this requires me to show only super categories (and no children) in the menus... but sometimes I may need to specifically hide a page from the menu, or worse I need to refererence the same link up to three times.

    Ideally, I'd like an advanced menu management plug-in, so I don't have to go into the code and change everything around.

    Example;
    Let's say you have a primary-menu, secondary-menu and a footer-menu. In all three I have a link called "Contact us" but they all go to the same page, I don't really want to be hacking apart WP to achieve the specific goal.

    Is there an advanced menu management plugin sorta like in Joomla or Drupal (which I find really hard to understand) where you can manage menus and assign pages or links to them?

    Then you could include them in your theme like this;

    "<?=show_menu(1);?>", etc

    Many thanks.

    Why not just include the built in wordpress page navigation with a depth set to 1 and exclude whatever you want from each? It would be easy enough to make each part an include file, to have it as a single line text file that you could edit from the theme manager. (I suggest this because I am not skilled enough to write the plugin myself, although I think it would be really nice to have.. good luck!)

    That makes sense, I really appreciate your help.

    Couldn't you also just make a menu by-hand with whatever links you want?

    It sounds like you're trying to auto-generate the menus (maybe you plan to add new categories regularly, or your writers may be creating categories), but if the menus won't change often maybe you could just make them by making a list of hard-coded links.

    I don't know. I am not a developer. Ask them.
    I am just a forum user as yourself (cursed with a memory that retains too much :)
