Shortcode Menu


This plugin gives more flexibility for custom menu. Shortcodes will be used to show your menu in the Sidebars, Footer Sidebars, Posts or Pages.
Using shortcode you can customize the menu attributes. Also you can set your custom id or class to a menu. You can display ordered list menu as well.

We have added the option of display style so users can display menu inline or block.

The main feature is that, we have enhanced the sub menu to display it more effectively. You can disable this feature.

We will create your shortcode for you in just simple steps.


  • Example of the Simple Enhanced menu.
  • Example of the Inline display menu.
  • Easy creating Shortcodes.


  1. Upload ‘shortcode-menu’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to ‘Shortcode Menu’ tab.
  4. Create the shortcode.
  5. Copy the shortcode and paste in your widgets, posts or pages.


My menu design collapse after updated to 2.0

We have added custom styling of menu. Just go to our menu create newly shortcode and replace with old one.
Note – If you want exactly same as previous design just select your menu and copy-paste with your previous shortcode.

Why should I use it as we are having Custom Menu widget?

Yes, We have Custom Menu widget provided by WordPress. But you cannot customize your menu.
You can use your custom id, class for menu.
You can display your menu inline.
You can enhance your sub menu styling.

Why there is not widget?

No issues, use text widget. Just copy-paste your shortcode.



Hello! I’ve been using this plugin on one of my website for almost 2 years. Recently I noticed a SyntaxError in my console log. Some <p> tags start appearing within JS code. Please update this plugin and fix compatibility issues. Thank you!

Works but with Errors

We have been using this plugin for a while and it works great… but there has not been an update in 2 years. It is now throwing errors into the error log. Will most likely be looking for a replacement soon.

Great plugin

This plugin is really great. It is the only plugin I’ve found that let me design my menu inside my page(not in header or footer). Great work on making it.
