Page Menu Editor


This plugin gives you two additional inputs when Writing or Modifying a Static Page. One is for the page’s menu label (anchor text), the other is for the title attribute within the link. By default there is no title attribute (as of 3.3). This plugin gives you more flexibility and will help to improve accessibility/usability.

Installation Instructions:

  1. Download the plugin and unzip it.
  2. Put the ‘page-menu-editor.php’ file into your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Go to the Plugins page in your WordPress Administration area and activate the Page Menu Editor.
  4. Go to Write -> Page or Manage -> Pages and Edit an existing page.
  5. The two new options will be displayed at the top of the Advanced options under ‘Page Menu Editor’.


What about if I don’t want to set a custom menu label for a particular page?

Just leave the menu label box blank and it will use the default value which is the same as the page header.

I want the same value for my title attribute as my anchor text

Okay, then either set the same value as your menu label or use %%menulabel%% so that it will always copy whatever the menu label is set to 🙂

I want to use whatever the page title is of the page for my title attribute

Use %%pagetitle%%

What if I’m using custom nav menus?

Then you don’t need this plugin as you can control the anchor text and title attribute within those settings.
