If Menu


Simple plugin that adds extra functionality to Menu Items. It will allow you to display or hide menu items based on conditions (Is single page, User is Logged In and many more).

The management is very easy, each menu item will have a “Enable Conditional Logic” option that will enable the selection of conditions – example in screenshots.

– Includes conditions for User state (logged in, has read capabilities), User roles (default + custom ones added by plugins), page types (is single page, is homepage, etc) or device type
– Multi conditions – you can build your own rules for hiding a menu item, example: hide if user is logged in OR is mobile, show if user is logged in AND is single page
– Support for custom conditions – add your own conditions in your theme or add extra functionality in your plugin


  • Enable conditions for Menu Items
  • Display a menu item just for Editors on mobile devices
  • Example of basic conditions included


To install the plugin, follow the steps below

  1. Upload if-menu to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory OR install through admin Plugins page
  2. Activate the plugin in ‘Plugins’ page in WordPress
  3. Go to Appearance -> Menus
  4. Enable conditions for your menu items, example in screenshots


If Menu is broken

The code for modifying the menu items is limited, and if other plugins/themes try to alter the menu items, this plugin will break.

This is an ongoing issue with WordPress which hopefully will be fixed in a future release.

Try to use just one plugin that changes the functionality for menu items.

How can I add a conditinal statement for menu items?

Custom conditions can be added easily by any plugins or themes.

Example of adding a new condition for disaplying/hiding a menu item when current page is a custom-post-type.

// theme's functions.php or plugin file
add_filter( 'if_menu_conditions', 'my_new_menu_condition' );

function my_new_menu_condition( $conditions ) {
  $conditions[] = array(
    'name'    =>  'If single custom-post-type', // name of the condition
    'condition' =>  function($item) {          // callback - must return TRUE or FALSE
      return is_singular( 'my-custom-post-type' );

  return $conditions;
Where do I find conditional functions?

WordPress provides a lot of functions which can be used to create conditions for almost any combination that a theme/plugin developer can think of.

great plugin

hello, thank you for your plugin.

i just like to ask if there may be a way to use both if-menu and custom-menu-class plugins together, because so far when i activate the latter, if-menu ui disappears from the menu items…

thank you and great work!
