Dynamic menus: This plugin automatically replaces selected Category / Post Tag / Custom Taxonomy links in a Custom Menu by a list of their posts/pages
The custom menu only allows adding a link that leads to a list of posts and pages belonging to a taxonomy (category, tag or custom). I wanted to insert the posts and pages themselves into the menu, so I wrote this plug-in. If you want to list the posts and pages belonging to a certain taxonomy in the menu and if you want WordPress to do this automatically for you, then I hope you will find this plugin useful.
Also works for custom post taxonomies and custom post types!
Enable the plugin and go to Appearance > Menus. Create your Custom Menu. Add a taxonomy (category/tag/custom) to the menu. Next, you can choose if you would like to replace the original link (to a page that lists the items) by the posts and pages themselves.
For each Category or Post Tag item in the menu, you now have the following extra configuration options:
This plugin uses the wp_nav_menu_objects filter hook to remove and replace category items in the menu by the posts in that category. It extends Walker_Nav_Menu_Edit to add input fields to Appearance > Menus and adds some CSS to style this properly.
The plugin now supports the wp_nav_menu_item_custom_fields hook and should be compatible with other plugins that also use this hook.
Requires: 3.2.1 or higher
Compatible up to: 4.2.5
