Support » Plugin: Page Menu Editor » Ehm…

  • I started with a 1 star rating as this plugin did not do anything on my blog. I had a “normal” nav menu with manual added items.

    Yet, when I tried a new and dynamically created menu (the contribution of Saad Amin on https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/wp_get_nav_menu_items/) this plugin suddenly DID work! 🙂

    Still testing where the “error” lies, so I have upped to 4 stars (for now). I will test further to see if it’s my theme or if this plugin in “limited”. I cannot delete my review (unfortunately), so this is the best solution (for now).

    Hi Patrick,

    This plugin was updated last year simply to update the code and I’ve had no problems using it on the latest version of WordPress, I’ve just not had time to update the version tag. However, the idea behind the plugin is outdated due to the introduction of the custom nav menus. Unless you’re using wp_list_pages() in your theme then this plugin is fairly useless to you! And by the looks of things you’re using a lot of other code (I would imagine wp_get_nav_menu_items is pulling menu items from a custom navigation menu).

    If you want to have different page titles showing then the WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast does this and much more, and if you want those additional custom fields then the advanced custom fields plugin is great for that job.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Sarah,

    Still testing here. Actually building a new, extremely light-weight theme from scratch. 😉

    I actually haven’t been able to reproduce the “error” with any other theme, so I think the problem was in there. In my new theme I am not using wp_list_pages() (ehm.. I think, maybe under the trunk…)

    Now, in my functions I register the menu with register_nav_menu(‘header-menu’,__( ‘Header Menu’ ));

    Then I call it in the header.php with <?php wp_nav_menu(); ?>

    Even if I manually add a WP page or post to the menu, your plugin still does change the menu label (from the edit page). So it works 😀

    That’s why I have now changed it to 5 stars! YEEY!!!
