Overview

WP Nav Plus provides “missing” functionality from the WordPress menu system. Use WP Nav Plus for split menus, divided menus, menu segments, or to limit and/or offset the menu output.

Features Include:

Split Menus

Many website designs call for a submenu, often right below the primary navigation in the header, or in a sidebar on interior pages. These submenu’s are designed to show the children of the currently active menu item. WP Nav Plus makes it super simple to build out these types of menus, known as “split menus.”


The video above will demonstrate creating a split menu using two different methods:

  1. With the WP Nav Plus widget – simply place the widget in the desired area, and select your prefered “Start Depth” for your menu (usually set to 1).
  2. Using the wordpress wp_nav_menu function (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_nav_menu) – WP Nav Plus adds an argument called “start_depth” which will allow you to specify your menus start depth right from the built in WordPress menu function.

Divided menus

A fairly common website design pattern you may see online calls for the header navigation menu to be placed left and right of a central object, like the site logo. WP Nav Plus makes it very easy to build out these “divided menus.”

The video above will demonstrate creating a divided menu using two different methods:

  1. With the WP Nav Plus widget – simply place the widget in the desired area, and enter your “Divider HTML” (often a logo) and choose the divider placement (Usually the middle).
  2. Using the wordpress wp_nav_menu function (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_nav_menu) – WP Nav Plus adds a series of arguments for creating divided menus which will allow you to specify your divider html, divider placement, divider class/ID, and even the divider container.

Menu Limit and/or Offset

Often website designs call for a menu to be split up into multiple columns, or rows. Such as a multi-column footer sitemap. WP Nav Plus provides the capabilities you need to quickly build these custom menu layouts using Limit and Offset.

The video above will demonstrate creating custom menu layouts in one of two ways:

  1. With the WP Nav Plus widget – simply place the widget in the desired area, and specify the limit and/or offset you desire. Use multiple widgets as needed to complete your custom layout.
  2. Using the wordpress wp_nav_menu function (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_nav_menu) – WP Nav Plus adds two additional arguments to help create custom menu layouts. Use the “limit” arguement to specify the maximum menu item parents to return. Use the “offset” argument to specify the number of menu item parents to skip over when returning your menu. Use multiple wp_nav_menu functions as needed to complete your custom layout.

Menu Segments

By using the menu segment feature of WP Nav Plus, you can specify a portion of your menu to be displayed on its own as a seperate chunk. Use menu segments when building site maps, mega menus, or all kinds of custom menu layouts.

The video above will demonstrate creating menu segments in one of two ways:

  1. With the WP Nav Plus widget – simply place the widget in the desired area, and specify the segment parent. Use multiple widgets as needed to complete your custom layout.
  2. Using the wordpress wp_nav_menu function (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_nav_menu) – WP Nav Plus adds one additional argument to help create menu segments. Use the “segment” arguement to specify the parent menu item whose children you wish to display. Use multiple wp_nav_menu functions as needed to complete your custom layout.
