Custom Menu Shortcode

I recently found a plugin that gave me a shortcode to enter pages and child pages. But for even more control and flexibility, I found Custom Menu Shortcode. This little plugin lets me insert any custom menu into a page or post. So rather than just a list of child pages, I can make any menu I’d like, sort it, exclude pages I don’t want and, of course, if a page name or URL is updated, the updates stick.

As per the Likoma bylaws, I don’t want to add anything “manual” to a page or widget when I could add something dynamic that will automatically updated. To see a screencast of Custom Menu Shortcode in action, head over to WordPress U.

    Hi Bradley,

    I found that the plugin is not working properly anymore. It’s only working for the main menu, no matter which name you choose.
    Luckily I found this identical one with almost the same name which does work for me:

      Thanks, Sjoerd! I’ll check that one out, too. But the plugin above works fine for me.
