Requesting easier handling / replacing of menu items

The Problem:

The current methodology for replacing a custom link, or any menu link is by doing the following process:

  1. Remove old menu link
  2. Insert new link
  3. scroll to bottom of page (if menu is large)
  4. Drag new link from end of list
  5. Drop new link in desired location
  6. repeat steps 4 and 5 until you hit the jackpot
  7. Enter menu options again (css, label etc)

Why is it a problem

It is very inefficient, especially when: (a) dealing with huge menus (b) menus with many sublevels (c) replacing many menu items which have custom options

Solution requirements

  • Retains Menu position / hierarchy
  • Retains Options (css class, label, title)
  • Choose from Pages / Posts / Categories etc

Thanks for the ticket!

I may be mistaken but wouldn't this only apply to Custom Links? It feels like a large lift for not a lot of gain and may be better as a plugin. Vote to close.
