By default, the menu system in WordPress only allows you to “Automatically add new top-level pages”, and does not offer the same functionality for new child pages. Auto Submenu solves that problem.
When activated, Auto Submenu will do its magic whenever you publish a new child page. If the new page’s parent is placed in a custom menu, then the new page will be added to that menu too (one level below its parent). Should you wish to reorder or delete the new page from the menu, you can simply do so on the admin Menus Screen.
The plugin does not have any settings. Auto Submenu will just work for all custom menus where the “Automatically add new top-level pages” setting is enabled.
The easiest way to install this plugin is via the admin’s Plugins screen.
- Upload the
auto-submenudirectory to the
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
This work simple and perfect. for me as a beginner with wordpress
An excellent tool, thank you!
1. Needs better explanation on how to implement – getting started might seem intuitive to some, others (like myself) have to figure out how to start a new menu’s “child” hierarchy correctly;
2. When adding new pages, MUST get it right first try; if you forget to make the new page a child (using “PARENT” drop-down), you cannot go back after and correct – the auto-add menu feature won’t see it; have to redo /clone the page and get it right this time;
With or without that other box ticked, and with Setting Parent correct, it doesn’t appear in the menu.
Sadly not working.
Let me know if its gonna be compatible with my version(4.4.2) !
Good, saved me from a lot of work. Bookmarked
