Add a WordPress Menu To Your WordPress Toolbar

in WordPress

Wordpress Admin Bar This WordPress snippet will add a WordPress Menu on the WordPress Toolbar.

This uses the admin_bar_menu which will run when the admin bar is created. This action calls the function Add_Menu_To_Toolbar.

Inside this function we start by grabbing the the WordPress menu "Toolbar Menu" by using the function wp_get_nav_menu_object(). This will return the menu object, from this object we can get the ID for the menu to get all the menu items by using the function wp_get_nav_menu_items(). Now we have all the menu items we can loop through them and add the menu items to the toolbar by using the add_node method. Having the Parent attribute will ensure that you can have sub-menus on the toolbar.

add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'Add_Menu_To_Toolbar', 500 );

function Add_Menu_To_Toolbar(){

$menu = wp_get_nav_menu_object( "Toolbar Menu" );
$menu_items = wp_get_nav_menu_items( $menu->term_id );
   foreach ($menu_items as $items) {
	$args = array( 'id' => 	$items->ID,
		'title' => 	$items->title,
		'parent' =>     $items->menu_item_parent,
		'href' 	=> 	$items->url,
		'meta' 	=> 	FALSE
	$wp_admin_bar->add_node( $args );
