Posts in category menu


Add sub menu items for all posts in a category menu item. For example if you have a category item in a menu this plugin will create child menu items for all posts in that category beneath that item.

This will contain all the posts in this category sorted alphabetically. See Roadmap for more details on what comes next. Code contributions welcome.


  • Provide for configuration of sort options for posts (ie: menu_order for menu_order).
  • Provide for configuration of limit (ie: numposts).
  • Provide option to use sticky posts only.


  1. Upload menu-posts-in-category/ directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add a category to a WordPress menu


Can I limit the number of posts shown in the submenu?

Not currently. See Roadmap.

Can I order the posts by [column name]?
