WP Advanced Menu

WP Advanced Menu | Maxime Pertici | menu,navigation,theme,walker


Forget the walker and create powerful navigations with a real theme system.
WP:AM is a new way to quickly create a powerful, modern and personalized navigation menu for your website.
You can create WP:AM themes for your menus in the same way as you create WordPress themes for your websites.


This plugin is intended for developers. It is still a phase of experimentation.
This side-project is still in development, but you already have features bellow integrated into the plugin.


  • Theme
    — Child Theme
    Create child themes by defining a theme as a template. If you need a higher level, you can also define another theme as grand parent: origin.
    — Library
    Load your themes (or those of others) from a WordPress theme or plugin. Create your own library, reuse and improve your menus from project to project.
    — Override
    Quickly personalize an existing theme with the override system. Copy an item and customize it. That’s it.

  • Item
    — Hierarchy
    Catch an item easily with the hierarchy template system for post type, taxonomy, archive and custom items.
    — Types
    Each menu item now has a type to help you create more advanced menus. WP:AM also offers new types of elements such as the image type or the Gutenberg block.

  • Panel
    — Breakpoints
    No need to rework your css files, you can now adjust your breakponts directly in the back office.
    — Options
    Add your theme options to the back office and configure your menu according to the needs of the current project.

  • Misc
    — ACF
    WP:AM is built on ACF. So use your favorite fields and build your ideas 🙂
    — Hooks
    WP:AM likes hooks and is starting to create new ones to make life easier for developers.
    — Cache
    WP:AM is compatible with cache plugins. Your stylesheets will be properly supported.
    — Translation
    WP:AM is translation ready. Fortunately 😛


A draft documentation is available (and almost up to date)


  1. Install the plugin and activate.
  2. If ACF is missing, install and activate ACF
  3. Create a navigation menu
  4. Validate location and theme for this menu
