WordPress Custom Menu / Extended Menu

Wordpress Custom Menu / Extended Menu

This option is enabled by default and requires WP 3.0 or greater. To configure, goto WP Admin → Appearance → Menus → Create your menu and select your Custom Menu in the top left hand corner (Theme Locations).

Drop Panel Menu Item

To initiate the Drop Panel using WP Custom Menu, got to WP Admin → Appearance → Menus and click "Screen Options" (Top Right) and switch on "CSS Classes". Now create a new Custom Link with the URL left as http:// and give the link a name e.g. Contact Us.

Once the link is added to the menu, you need to remove the URL and paste droppaneltrigger into the CSS Classes field. Now your menu item will act as a drop panel trigger.

Main Menu Description

To add a menu description simply add text to the "Title Attribute".

Extended Menu

The Extended Menu allows the user to have more than one column within the drop down menus.

To enable this feature, make sure the user has 'Wordpress Custom Menus' enabled. If unsure, navigate to 'Header Settings' and find 'Wordpress Custom Menus' and enable it.

After this, navigate to Apperance → Menus.

Click on 'Screen Options' at the top right of the page and check the box for 'CSS Classes'. Close 'Screen Options'

To enable Extended Menus, click on a top menu and add in the correct text, as stated below. CSS Classes can only be added to the top menus.

By default there is 1 column. By adding in the text extended-menu this enables a full-width menu. Each child menu item you add under this menu item will act as a column.

Enabling Descriptions

To enable descriptions, go to 'Screen Options' within 'Menus' and check the Descriptions check box. Go back into General Settings → WordPress Custom Menu → Enable WP Custom Menu Descriptions and check Enable. This will allow descriptions to be shown. Save and continue.

By default, WordPress automatically assigns a description. To remove this, naviagate back to Apperance → Menus and expand the desired child menu. Delete the exsisting description and add your own in. This could be an image gallery shortcode for example. Once descriptions are enabled, each child menu will have a description. The user will have to go through and delete the unwanted descriptions. Not all shortcodes are designed to be placed within the Extended Menus.
