User Menus

Description

User Menus by Jungle Plugins is the perfect plugin for websites which have logged in users.

The plugin gives you more control over your nav menu by allowing you to apply visibility controls to menu items e.g who can see each menu item (everyone, logged out users, logged in users, specific user roles).

It also enables you to display logged in user information in the navigation menu e.g “Hello, John Doe”.

Lastly, the plugin allows you to add a login and logout link to your menu.
