Add bookmark links to the wp_nav_menu

Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will add bookmarks from a specified category to the wp_nav_menu. This also supports the sub-menu class so you can create pure css dropdown menus.

 

 

add_filter('wp_nav_menu_items', 'add_bookmarks', 10, 2);
function add_bookmarks($items, $args) {
$cat = '2'; // define category
$bookmarks = array();
$bookmarks = get_bookmarks("category=$cat");
if ($bookmarks[0] != '') {
$items .= '<li><a href="#">Bookmarks</a><ul class="sub-menu">';
foreach ( $bookmarks as $bookmark ) {
$items .= '<li><a href="'.clean_url($bookmark->link_url).'">'.$bookmark->link_name.'</a></li>';
}
$items .= '</ul>';
}
return $items;
}
