WP Better Sub Menus


WP Better Sub Menus improves the menu admin screen (nav-menus.php) by allowing you to Expand/Contract the menu items. Specially useful when your menu consist of a few dozens of items.

Other features include:

  • Sticky sidebar for easier access to the links sidebar menu
  • Scrollable sidebar.
  • Colored menu items to indicate if a menu item has subitems inside
  • Easy click & expand or click & contract.



  • Before: Sometimes you have so many items that it gets almost impossible to navigate.
  • After: The plugin contracts the items containing subitems plus making your sidebar sticky and scrollable
  • Easy Click & Contract: Just click the color bar for a menu item and it contracts to let you see the items below.


Upload the plugin to your blog, activate it and go to Appearance / Menus. You’ll see that now your menus are nested and contracted. Note: If you don’t have any submenus or nested menus, you’ll not going to notice any changes.

This plugin introduces only visual changes, your navigation functionality remains the same.
