Duplicate Menu Bar option

I would really like to see a way to duplicate a WordPress Menu bar. There have been countless times in the past few years of working with WordPress websites where this would have come in very handy.

So if possible, please add a way to duplicate a menu bar in a future WP version.

Thank you.

Hi @AlGala,

Welcome to Trac.

Can you expand a bit? I'm assuming that you mean the toolbar at the top of the screen when logged in and not the menu on the left side of the admin screen.

When you say you want to duplicate it, what is the end goal?

Hi @desrosj,

Thank you for your reply!

Sure, I can expand.

What I mean is the Menu bar builder (appearance--> Menus)
see image:

I would like those menu bars to be able to be duplicated. We have had to manually rebuild menu bars many times before, on lots of different sites. If we had a way to just simply duplicate a menu bar, it would be much easier to copy it and make a small change, so we can keep both versions around as needed.

So down where it says 'delete menu', if there was a button that said 'duplicate menu' or 'copy menu', that would be great.

I hope this makes more sense now.

Is there any word on this yet? I would really like to see this feature added. I strongly believe that adding in a way to duplicate menu bars would be a very useful feature.
