Chris Mavricos from Seven Spark, creator of the fantastic UberMenu WordPress Plugin that is used to enhance the WP Mods navigation menu, recently contacted me about his latest project Menu Management Enhancer.
The plugin was designed to help those with many items in their WordPress menus by addressing the problems that arise when you have lots of items in your menu(s). It’s main feature is the ability to expand and contract each menu level; either individually or collectively. It makes moving menu items around much easier as previously, moving an item from the bottom of the tree to the top was a pain.
The default menu tree
The number of sub menu items (children) is shown at the side of each item. This is a great of way of seeing where your items are when everything has been collapsed. I would prefer if the number was large though as the font is quite small.
You can jump to each top level menu easily by clicking quick menu jumper at the right hand side of the page (the width of the jumper can be toggled too). From here hide or show menu ids, toggle descriptions on and off and switch hints on.
Menu Management Enhancer is not a menu replacement. It will work with any menu improvement plugin such as UberMenu and only affects the menu page in your back end.
Menu Management Enhancer retails for $8 from ThemeForest. If you only have a few items on your menu page, this isn’t the plugin for you. Those of you who have lots of menu items however should find Menu Management Enhancer very useful, particularly if you add or remove items frequently.
