Good idea but bad support

The idea is good but the support is not very good. So if you find another plug-in with similar functionality I would advise to try that!

works …. But a few things to keep in mind

It doesn’t work for any existing parent/child pages , it only works on pages created after the plugin is installed.

You must enable – “Automatically add new top-level pages to this menu” on the menu , if not activated , it also won’t work.

does not work on multilanguage site with more than 1 menu

how can I get this to work with polylang or any simliar plugin for multilanguages.

the “original wordpress” function works very well: i create a new DE-site, I get a new DE-menu item. I create a new EN-Site, I get a new EN-Site.

BUT by using this plugin it should work for child items as well. but it doesn’t.
If i create a new DE-site-CHILD, I get a new DE-menu item (child). If I create a new EN-Site-child, I DON’T get a new EN-Site (child).

Doesn't work…

It doesn’t do anything…

I have lots of pages, I edit a page (wich falls under a parent (with menu)), I save the page and still no extra submenu item.
