I have hundreds of pages that I needed to make a menu with. The WordPress inbuilt functionality is quite terrible. This plugin did make that job a little easier. However, it could have been much, much better. The daunting task ahead of me was selecting many, many pages for the menu. The main page and most of its children were thankfully right next to each other in the plugin’s selection structure. All I had to was click each and every page to add it to my menu, one by one. No easy shortcuts for this plugin! The plugin got the job done-ish in a fraction of the time it would have with just the WordPress functionality.
You may have noticed the “Most of its Children” part. Yes, the alphabetical listing of child pages sometimes just left off some of the pages around below the letter T. A quirk of the search? No! I wasn’t even searching. When bulk adding to the menu, sometimes I’d have pages that started with W, sometimes not.
Also, adding more pages to these menus after the initial selection was impossible. I tried every button I could and never figured it out. Just go to the WordPress menu system to do those updates for T-Z pages. While you’re there, use the WordPress Menu drag and drop interface for rearranging the pages into the parent and child structure. Not only does the plugin not bring those relationships into your menu, the plugin sometimes messes up the settings for parent and child relationships in the menu after you save.
