Merge Menus


Ever had to combine 2 menus using the default WordPress Menu editor. Manually it can take a while to copy over all the details from 1 menu to another.

This does all the leg work for you by copied all the elements of the menu into the menu you are currently editing.


  1. Search for Merge Menus in the WordPress Plugin Repo

I was looking for a way to add a menu that is temporary and I do it every year.

This plugin saves you a lot of time trying to manage menu items. Thank you!To author: Please add some description of how to use it as it can be confusing for first time users.

It has one functionality only, inside the menu tab, and it allows you to pick one menu to merge with the currently selected menu. Life saver for websites organizing content with menus. Thanks.
