Auto Submenu

WordPress can only automatically add new top-level pages to menus. With Auto Submenu, new child pages will also be automatically added to menus.

Works for new pages, but not edited
By , for WP 4.1.1

This works perfectly when correctly adding new child-pages, but if you forget to select parent page, this addon won't help you when you edit the page and select parent after creating it.

Should be a core function indeed

Really simple and easy to use plugin, thanks to the developer for saving my time to code it myself. :)

Nice

Nice little plugin. Saves time with having to manually maintain menu hierarchies through the Appearance Menu settings in Admin.

Only works where the 'Automatically add new top-level pages to this menu' option is set for a menu. I don't normally use that option but with this plugin I can without hassle of immediately needing to sort the menu after a page is published.

very well

A great little solution and works like a dream. Should be integral to any Word Press install.

using wordpress 3.9.2 does't work at all...infact I've tried several of these plugins and none of them work.

Works best if you set this up before adding any pages.

If you try to use this plugin on an existing site that has a menu, it will appear to not work correctly at times, but after reading the description of this plugin a few times, it will start to make sense. Child pages will only populate for newly created pages. Child pages will also only populate if the immediate parent ( the one right above it) is already in the menu. So in the case that you have level 1 items and level 2 items created already, you will need to manually add level 1 and level 2 items for level 3 items to populate automatically. One thing that this plugin requires you to do is to check the 'Automatically add new top-level pages to this menu' option in the menu settings at the bottom. Given that this will add more pages to the top level, you may have a menu that only fits 6 items. In that case, you have to find a way to either include on the ones you want, delete them every time a new top level item is added, or create a separate menu. In the case that you have a dropdown menu you can just remove the ones as they get added, and if you don't have a dropdown menu, then it's best to create a separate menu.

I am rating this a 4 out of 5 because the plugin is not explained well and some things are not made immediately clear to users making it seem to 'not work' at times, even though it does do what it says.

works well !
