rvw Add Link


Add links and menus to posts, pages, and custom post types.

An “Add Link” button is added to the editor, click to show a menu:

  • Posts, Pages, to select a link destination.
  • Custom link, to type in the url of an external page.
  • Menus, to insert a menu that has been created in the Appearance –> Menus page.

A label may be added to describe the link.

All links will be inserted in the post as a “shortcode”

Menus will be rendered by the WordPress wp_nav_menu() function, this adds classes to various parts of the menu to enable it to be styled using css [more details here.] (

Integrated help is included: just click the “help” tab at the top right of the screen.
