How to get nav menu list through menu name in WordPress

I'm using this code by this code but showing all pages not working with custom nav menu name

<?php wp_page_menu('sort_column=ID&amp;sort_order=desc;'); ?>

I think you're looking for the wp_nav_menu() function, which deals with the navigation menus that you create in the WordPress admin (Appearance > Menus)

You can call it like this:

<?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu' => 'Header Menu' ) ); ?>

Where Header Menu is the name of the menu you want to print. There are other parameters available.

  • Did my solution work for you, @javeednizar? – shea Dec 18 '12 at 7:06
  • I know this is kind of old, but that will return a 500 error (as of the date of this comment). You'll need to wrap the key => values inside an array: wp_nav_menu( array('menu' => 'menu_name') ); – stinkysGTI May 3 '19 at 4:51
  • @stinkysGTI good catch, thanks. Not sure how it's been wrong for so long. – shea May 3 '19 at 8:17
