Plugin / Advanced Menu Widget

Ján Bočínec



This plugin adds enhanced “Navigation Menu” widget. It offers many options which could be set to customize the output of the custom menu through the widget.

Features include:

  • Custom hierarchy – “Only related sub-items” or “Only strictly related sub-items”.
  • Starting depth and maximum level to display + flat display.
  • Display all menu items starting with the selected one.
  • Display only direct path to current element or only children of selected item (option to include the parent item).
  • Display menu as drop down.
  • Custom class for a widget block.
  • And almost all the parameters for the wp_nav_menu function.
  • shortcode [advMenu]
  • Display menu items descriptions.

Are you missing something or isn’t it working as expected ? I am open to suggestions to improve the plugin !
