If Menu


Display tailored menu items to each visitor, based on visibility rules. Here are a few examples:

  • Display a menu item only if current User is logged in
  • Hide menu items if Device is mobile
  • Display menu items for Admins and Editors
  • Hide Login or Register links for Logged in Users
  • Display menu items for Users from US and UK

The plugin is easy to use, each menu item will have a new option “Change menu item visibility” which will enable the selection of rules (example in Screenshots)


  • Basic set of visibility rules
    • User state User is logged in
    • User roles Admin Editor Author etc
    • Page type Front page Single page Single post
    • Visitor device Is Mobile
  • Advanced visibility rules – requires Premium plan
    • Visitor location – detect visitor’s Country
    • 3rd-party plugin integrations – WooCommerce Subscriptions, Groups, WishList Member
  • Multiple rules – mix multiple rules for a menu item visibility
    • show if User is logged in AND Device is mobile
    • show if User is Admin AND Is front page
  • Support for adding your custom rules

Example of adding a new visibility rule is described in the FAQ section


  • Enable visibility rules for Menu Items
  • Example of visibility rules


To install the plugin, follow the steps below

  1. Upload if-menu to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Enable visibility rules for your Menu Items in Appearance -> Menus page


Installation Instructions

To install the plugin, follow the steps below

  1. Upload if-menu to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Enable visibility rules for your Menu Items in Appearance -> Menus page
If Menu is broken, no visibility rules are available

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 functionality for menu items.

How can I add a custom visibility rule for menu items?

New rules can be added by any other plugin or theme.

Example of adding a new custom rule for displaying/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_conditions');

function my_new_menu_conditions($conditions) {
  $conditions[] = array(
    'id'        =>  'single-my-custom-post-type',                       // unique ID for the rule
    'name'      =>  __('Single my-custom-post-type', 'i18n-domain'),    // name of the rule
    'condition' =>  function($item) {                                   // callback - must return Boolean
      return is_singular('my-custom-post-type');

  return $conditions;
Where can I find conditional functions?

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

Who made that really cool icon

Got the icons from here https://dribbble.com/shots/1045549-Light-Switches-PSD, so giving the credit to Louie Mantia


Great Job !

Well done, bro ! I’ve been using it many times 🙂

But sadly, it doesn’t work whith Divi Theme : when activate, all the main pages appears, even those which are not in menu, appears in my primary menu…

Simple yet soooo powerful

Who needs a bloated membership plugin. All you need is this as long as the menu is the only navigation you have. I had to restrict access to some pages too and used Restrict Content (free) plugin but this is great for me with different levels of membership – my committee have their own menu options, me as admin my own too.
