GitHub version Scrutinizer Code Quality Join the chat at https://gitter.im/unfulvio/wp-api-menus

WordPress plugin that extends the JSON REST WP API with new routes pointing to WordPress registered menus. Read the WP API documentation.

New routes available:

  • /menus

  • /menus/

  • /menu-locations
    list of all registered theme locations.
  • /menu-locations/
    data for menu in specified menu in theme location.

route for individual menus will return a tree with full menu hierarchy, with correct menu item order and listing children for each menu item. The
route will output menu details and a flat array of menu items. Item order or if each item has a parent will be indicated in each item attributes, but this route won't output items as a tree.
