Improved menu manager

  1. Steven


    I have two suggestions for better menu management (not the backend administration menu).

    Suggestion 1

    Remove the current menu manager. We don't need it.

    All we need to do is to set what page we want / page we do not want to show in the menu structure.

    Then implement Flávio Ricardo's suggestion of showing / hiding child elements (http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/topic/management-pages)

    Suggestion 2
    The current menu system is ok, but thre is room for improvement

    - When a page is deleted, the corresponding menu item (if exists) should also be deleted

    - One click button to generate first main menu as a copy of the page structure would be nice.

    No, not at all! We absolutely need it. A "hide these from menu" option is very useless.

  3. Yes, this is an awesome idea that I thought should be in core already. Pagination has always been a sore point when it comes to the wordpress cms. Obviously wordpress is rapidly evolving into a general cms rather than just a blogging platform that it was originally designed for. With this comes much larger websites and many more pages.

    From an seo point of view, Google doesn't seem to like wordpress child pages and considers them to be more duplicate content that has a negative effect on rankings. Maybe having dynamic pagination that Google considers as part of the one primary page may be a good option to look at.

    In my case I have many items in my menu, categories mostly,
    and I hate it that visitors can bump in empty categories, my posts are time limited so they expire and sometimes I want to disable some menu items manually and enable them back after a while. In my case hiding/disabling option would be very useful.

    Menu manager is OK, I use it all the time. There are also several plugins for menu manipulation.

    Still, there is a suggestion that I think would be VERY useful:

    - Simple option for menu items (taxonomy wise at least) "exclude/hide/do not show if there are no posts in it".

    Another way to do it would be ability to manipulate original Menu Generator. WP original menu generator puts also pages in menu.

    - Adding options that would generate menu only from selected TAXONOMIES (categories, tags, custom tax etc).
    Also option "IF posts exist in them"... would be great.

    - Easier solution might be a simple option to list all pages and categories that we want to EXCLUDE from generating... with option EXCLUDE if ZERO posts.

    If there is any plugin capable of such functionality please let me know.

    Almost forgot,

    As a multisite user I have to recreate menu on every new site I create all the time.
    Exporting and importing menu would very helpfull.

    i've using CMS tree page view before.. Within this tree you can edit pages, view pages, add pages, and drag and drop pages to rearrange the order. I personally use this plugin on some site where I have many pages.
