I'm working on a system to add custom options to the WordPress menu editor, and I'd like to integrate it with the Screen Options panel. In my research, I couldn't find anything on modifying an existing screen options menu; is this possible? See the screenshots below to better understand what I'm trying to accomplish.

Default "Screen Options" on Appearance > Menus:


Goal "Screen Options" on Appearance > Menus:



Figured this out by looking through the WordPress source code 🙂

function new_site_add_custom_screen_options($args) {
    $args["custom_option_1"] = __("Custom Option 1", "new_site");
    $args["custom_option_2"] = __("Custom Option 2", "new_site");

    return $args;
add_filter("manage_nav-menus_columns", "new_site_add_custom_screen_options", 20);
