I'm trying to loop through my Navbar in WordPress so that I can output some Icons at the end of the last link. I have this working but I end up outputting a Navbar and a list. I think this is because I'm using bootstrap and the outputted Navbar from the loop has none of the properties that the bootstrap Navbar uses.

How would I do this? I appreciate any help.

Here is my code:

<nav class="navbar navbar-default navbar-fixed-top">
    <div class="container-fluid">
        <!-- Brand and toggle get grouped for better mobile display -->
        <div class="navbar-header">
          <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle collapsed" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#bs-example-navbar-collapse-1">
                <span class="icon-bar"></span>
                <span class="icon-bar"></span>
                <span class="icon-bar"></span>
          </button>
          <a class="navbar-brand" href="<?php echo home_url(); ?>">
            <img src="<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/img/logo.png" alt="Logo" />
          </a>
        </div>
        <?php
            wp_nav_menu( array(
                'menu'              => 'Menu 1',
                'theme_location'    => 'Menu 1',
                'depth'             => 2,
                'container'         => 'div',
                'container_class'   => 'collapse navbar-collapse navbar-right',
                'container_id'      => 'bs-example-navbar-collapse-1',
                'menu_class'        => 'nav navbar-nav',
                'fallback_cb'       => 'wp_bootstrap_navwalker::fallback',
                'walker'            => new wp_bootstrap_navwalker())
            );
        ?>

        <?php $items = wp_get_nav_menu_items( $menu, $args ); ?>

        <?php 
            echo '<ul>';

            foreach($items as $item)
            {
                echo '<li>'.$item->title.'</li>';
            }
            echo '<li><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i></a></li>';
            echo '</ul>';

        ?>
    </div>
</nav>

I'm not sure how to loop through and still keep all the bootstrap properties.

  • might be easiest to use nth-child selectors, or the menu-item css classes to apply the icon using :before{content:"/f00;"} or something like that. You could also try add a meta field to the menu-items in the backend (not something I've done, but there's potential) – admcfajn Jan 1 '18 at 21:18

There are 4 arguments that might help you with wp_nav_menu():

  • before"(string) Text before the link text."
  • after"(string) Text after the link text."
  • link_before"(string) Text before the link."
  • link_after"(string) Text after the link."
  • So I could maybe add 'link_after' in my array and echo out my <li> with a icon? – Tom Withers Feb 2 '16 at 15:19
  • @GuruTom Those who try get rewarded. – kaiser Feb 2 '16 at 15:24
  • So after trying and it works, but I only want to output the icon after the last link, not after every link, both after and link_after are outputting after every link... is there a way to stop this? – Tom Withers Feb 2 '16 at 15:38
  • Have you already looked into custom walkers? Hint: Search for Bootstrap and wp_nav_bar(). – kaiser Feb 2 '16 at 15:53
  • Yes, Im using one to make the bootstrap navbar work with wordpress – Tom Withers Feb 2 '16 at 15:56
