I'm building a contact information plugin that writes data to a page. So far, so good. What I would like is to build a function into the plugin that adds a navigation item to the main nav bar on the site (there will only ever be one nav bar at a time), and ensures the item is at the bottom of the nav bar.

this is the general gist of what you need to do, you'll want to add some checks in here, make sure you get a valid menu returned, etc..
$locations = get_theme_mod( 'nav_menu_locations' ); $menu = wp_get_nav_menu_object( reset( $locations ) ); // get first item in menu locations array $menu_item_data = array( 'menu-item-object-id' => $your_page->ID, // ID of the page you want to add 'menu-item-parent-id' => 0, // top level menu item 'menu-item-position' => 0, // setting position to 0 will add it to the end 'menu-item-object' => 'page', 'menu-item-type' => 'post_type', 'menu-item-status' => 'publish' ); wp_update_nav_menu_item( $menu->term_id, 0, $menu_item_data );
Many thanks; I'll give it a shot and return with my success. Sorry if this is a basic thing :S Sep 17, 2012 at 17:21
Was able to add menu items automatically thanks to this code. Thank you! Sep 24, 2012 at 17:52
