Adds menu icons, menu item css class, menu link XFN, menu item description and ability to open menu link in new window. All using default Appearance->Menus.
Icons will be displayed with default menu walker. If you use your own you can add images to menu with $output .= apply_filters( ‘walker_nav_menu_start_el’, $output, $item, $depth, $args ); or get icon url with get_post_meta($menu_item_id, ‘_vihv_menu_icon’, true); and display anywhere you want. Enjoy!

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- I add icon urls to menu, but they are not displayed in frontend, how can I work around?
Most themes use custom menu walkers, instead of wp default Walker_Nav_Menu. And some of developers don’t call ‘walker_nav_menu_start_el’ filter. You need to find menu walker class in your theme code (search for files which contain ‘extends Walker_Nav_Menu’ and ‘extends Walker’) and add apply_filter rule at the end. See wp-includes/nav-menu-template.php as example. Alternatively you can use get_post_meta($menu_item_id, ‘_vihv_menu_icon’, true) to receive icon url inside menu walker code and use it as you want.
