Reviews

Perfect so far

Thanks. Works totally as expected. It does seem strange this isn’t in the core wordpress settings already.

A Brilliant Simple Time Saver

Since not all site menus are simple, as multi-layered menus with custom links here and there are certainly far more complex… and this plugin provides a simple workable solution when a client says “can we remove that from the menu for the time being”. Instead of deleting item(s) and then later having to recreate them this tool now lets me simply disable/hide it without deleting. And that’s an incredible time saver. Why this isn’t a core option, I’ll never know… but it should be.
