Description (last modified by swissspidy)

i had an idea - developers should have an ability to set a constant i.e.

USE_STATIC_CUSTOM_MENU('menu_name') = true;

in general, output of custom_menus on front-end, takes long (sometimes 1 second)..
so, i think, that the custom-menu output should be saved as static string, and that should be output on front-end request by visitors...
and that static string should be changed/ updated every time the custom-menu is edited, or when any of that custom-menu's item is modified...
i think, it will save huge resources over millions of sites/hosting..

p.s. of course, somehow, "current-menu-item" should be added while front-end request..

Hey there

Thanks for creating this ticket. What you suggest is fragment caching for nav menus, which was already proposed in #36225. I'm therefore closing this as a duplicate.
