Menu Customizer

Manage your Menus in the Customizer. WordPress core feature-plugin merged in WordPress 4.3.

This plugin has been merged into WordPress core as of version 4.3.

This plugin is a WordPress core feature-plugin and a former Google Summer of Code 2014 project. See the updates on Make WordPress Core for more information.

The Menu Customizer adds custom menu management to the Customizer. The plugin requires WordPress 4.3-alpha-32764 or higher and has been tentatively approved for merge into core for version 4.3.

Menu Customizer fixes some significant problems with the existing approach to menu management in core, particularly around scaling. Note that its scope carefully excludes fundamental changes with the menus paradigms; rather, the goal of this project is to modernize the menu management experience so that the UX can be iterated on more reasonably. Most importantly, Menu Customizer allows you to live-preview changes to your menus before they're published.

If you're interested in contributing to this project, stay tuned to http://make.wordpress.org/core for updates, or ping @celloexpressions on WordPress core Slack. Development is happening on GitHub: https://github.com/voldemortensen/menu-customizer.

Core Patches

Several improvements to the Customizer are also in the works as a part of this project, in the form of core patches (for example, the Panels API, and the still in-progress APIs for dynamically-added controls and sections). See Customizer posts on make/core for details.
