I'm looking for a way to make a menu that contains all categories and when an author has 1 or more post in said category they appear in the dropdown for that category, the links could look like this:
*category 1* /classes/category-1 *author1* /classes/category-1?author_name=author1 *author2* /classes/category-1?author_name=author2 *category 2* /classes/category-2 *author1* /classes/category-2?author_name=author1 *author3* /classes/category-2?author_name=author3 *category 3* /classes/category-3 *author1* /classes/category-3?author_name=author1 *author2* /classes/category-3?author_name=author2 *author3* /classes/category-3?author_name=author3
I can't seem to find a plugin that does this and I have no clue how to customise Wordpress.
I understand HTML and (basic) procedural PHP, but that doesn't really seem to help. I've attempted to follow functions back but I can never work out what's going on.
I did find that I can use
wp_create_nav_menu() to create a menu, but I have no idea where to put it to make it run and how to make it automatic
The menu would just be placed in a menu slot in my theme.
Is anyone able to suggest a way to do this or where to get started.
