Link Categories in Menu Manager
I’m not as familiar with this as I probably should be *ahem*
When you add categories, it goes to a page for that category, though, right? It doesn’t add an auto-updating list of all your cats, correct?
Sorry – I realize it’s confusing to talk about, as the keywords links, categories, menus, get tossed around a lot.
Appearance > Menus features those built-in admin widgets for Pages, Custom Links, and Categories.
Custom Links are fine for the occasional external link.
Categories is referring to blog categories, only.
Adding a category to the menu here will enable a page for that blog category.
Similarly, I want another admin widget that offers the Link Category feature found in the Links Manager.
Ideally, adding a links category to the menu would enable a page that displayed that category’s links.
It seems like each of the necessary functions already exist somewhere, but they don’t all work together in this way.
Thanks so much, esmi! That’s an astonishingly simple way to take care of a large part of the task.
Sorry to say, I’m still in search for the ideal solution –to incorporate this idea into the Menu manager, in order to select separate pages for each link-category, and hopefully even a dropdown of the each category’s links in the main menu.
I fee like I could figure this out if only I knew where to find 3 bits of code.
Can anyone help me find any of the following?…
1. the file that creates Appearance > Menus.
2. the string of code that either pulls in, or creates the blog Categories widget found in Appearance > Menus.
3. the string of code that creates the Links Categories/Bookmarks/Blogroll widget found in Appearance > Widgets.
It seems like with this info, you could “simply” insert a new widget into the Menu manager. Is this a realistic approach?
