Dynamic menus: List all posts from a category in your menu. Also works for tags, custom taxonomies as well as pages and custom post types.
Here's a walkthrough:
If you now look at your blog, you will have a menu with only one item: "Category A". If you hover over that item with the mouse, it will open, and a post is displayed titled "Post 1". Add additional posts to Category A and you will see these additional posts in the menu.
The CSS class 'current-post-ancestor' is not applied correctly. This is a bug in WordPress that I have reported here: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/32918 This is not something I am able to fix in the plugin, it has to be fixed in WordPress. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
The plugin is potentially very expensive, especially when you decide to build your entire menu out of nothing but category posts.
The solution would be to cache the menu using transients, as reported here https://wordpress.org/support/topic/performance-problem-many-database-queries?replies=11#post-7829450
$my_cached_menu = get_transient( 'my_cached_menu');
if( $my_cached_menu === false )
$my_cached_menu = wp_nav_menu( ... );
set_transient( 'my_cached_menu_', $my_cached_menu, YEAR_IN_SECONDS );
When another plugin or theme, other than CPCM, has a higher priority than CPCM and overwrite sthe fields in Appearances > Menus, this means CPCM's fields won't show. (Verify by disabling all plugins and check if the CPCM fields now show.)
There is no way to go around this with native WordPress hooks. A proposed solution is for all plugin and theme users to start calling and using a custom hook. CPCM does this. The proposed hook is
wp_nav_menu_item_custom_fields. Several plugin authors are using this hook. If another plugin is not compatible, contact the author and request they start using this hook. Also see https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/18584#comment:62
Problem: "I can't see what effect it has had. Nothing has changed (not that I can see) in the Appearance > Menu page. Just like before."
This problem should only occur if:
Requires: 3.2.1 or higher
Compatible up to: 4.7.1
