How do I make a page (dis)appear conditionally in a menu? I had something like this in mind:


I would prefer an answer that doesn't incorporate an external plugin.

  • do you mean a wp_nav_menu?

You can use wp_nav_menu_objects or wp_nav_menu_items hooks to add your filter function.

function my_hide_menu_items($objects) {
    if ( is_admin() ) return $objects;

    foreach ( $objects as $k=>$object ) {
        if ( YOUR CONDITION ) {  // if $object shouldn't be displayed
    return $objects;
add_filter('wp_nav_menu_objects', 'my_hide_menu_items', 10, 2);
  • Exactly what I was looking for, many internets for you, sir!
