I was going a little squirrelly as I needed to get widget content from another plugin into a custom menu system I was building. While a short-code was available, I couldn’t figure out how to easily get it into the menu system. I was about to set into another lengthy coding session to make my requirements operational but then thought I can’t be alone with this need.
A quick search for ‘WordPress widget in menu’ brought me here.
Why this isn’t a default option in WordPress is beyond me, as it instantly bridges the gap between sidebars, widgets and menus.
This plugin instantly gave me access to building far more complicated and useful menu systems.
The fact it allows me to create my own sidebars for inclusion in the menu system is icing on the cake, as I can create unique groupings of widgets to include, without changing the structure of existing work.
Thank you Ben Byrne for creating and sharing this extremely useful code.
