My theme registers custom menus with this function:

function nav_menus() {
    if ( function_exists( 'register_nav_menus' ) ) {
        array('main-menu' => __( 'Main Menu' ), 'sub-menu' => __( 'Sub Menu' ))

I need to place code into my sidebar, that checks to see if the "main-menu" is active - for example, has a menu assigned to the "Main Menu" theme location.

Anyone know how to test for this?


You can use the function has_nav_menu('main-menu'). See the WordPress Codex here.

Use has_nav_menu:

Returns boolean Whether a registered nav menu location has a menu assigned(true) or not(false).

<?php $menu=has_nav_menu( $location ); ?> 

Reference: has_nav_menu
