#25200 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Cannot filter Walker items in Walker_Nav_Menu_Checklist class

I have a need to filter the URL of a menu item in the nav-menus.php admin page.

The Walker_Nav_Menu class uses the following code to filter the attributes which would be great but..

$atts = apply_filters( 'nav_menu_link_attributes', $atts, $item, $args );

.. the Walker_Nav_Menu_Checklist class that generates a checklist doesn't filter the links attributes like the Walker_Nav_Menu class.

@maxaud, can you provide more detail on what you're trying to do?

Walker_Nav_Menu_Checklist generates the checklists within the accordion sections in nav-menus.php (Pages, Links, Categories etc.). It does not generate a link for each nav item. I think you might be confusing one class with another.

I needed to modify the URL associated with the checklist item.

Here is some coded generated by the item (see: "[menu-item-url]"):

	<label class="menu-item-title"><input type="checkbox" class="menu-item-checkbox" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-object-id]" value="15706">Some Page Item</label>
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-db-id" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-db-id]" value="0">
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-object" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-object]" value="page">
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-parent-id" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-parent-id]" value="0">
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-type" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-type]" value="post_type">
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-title" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-title]" value="Some Page Item">
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-url" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-url]" value="">
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-target" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-target]" value="">
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-attr_title" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-attr_title]" value="">
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-classes" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-classes]" value="">
	<input type="hidden" class="menu-item-xfn" name="menu-item[-2][menu-item-xfn]" value="">
