WordPress Menu Order


Creating a navigation structure is a simple enough exercise in WordPress, but when it comes to the refinement of it – specifically the order in which items should appear – you can readily see the shortcomings of the product.
Yes, it is possible to change the order in which the navigational items appear (via the Order attribute), but this is a painfully slow exercise. Believe me, I’ve been through this and it’s not fun – especially when a client cannot make up their mind about the order in which items should appear!
Suffice to say, there needs to be a way to help automate this task, which is where this plugin comes into play.


  1. Upload wp-menu-order.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory as well as the three sub-folders that come bundled with the plugin – _images, _scripts and _styles.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Access WP Menu Order from the Pages navigation to begin organizing your existing page hierarchy.
