Custom Post Type Auto Menu

Automatically create menu items for your custom post types in your chosen menu and parent menu item.

How many custom post types can I use?

The plugin now supports multiple custom post types. Use as many as you like.

Can I create sub-sub menu items?

Yes. But it requires a mod to the code and can lead to strange issues. I'll figure it out for future versions.

What about categories and pages?

There are other available solutions for that, but if there is demand I could incorporate it in future releases.

Can I add existing custom post type posts to the menu?

Some users have many existing cpt's and want to change them to a new menu. This can be done by selecting all your custom post types and setting them to 'draft' status, then back to 'publish'. The plugin will detect them as new, and they will be added.

Why do post types have to be public?

Custom post types must be set to public for the plugin to see them. This is because one of the assumptions of not setting a post type to public is that 'show_in_nav_menus' will be false. Obviously this is not the desired outcome of a plugin that automatically adds items to a menu.
