    So this is going to be a Core Plugin maintained by the WooThemes Team and supervised by Automattic?


  2. Jeffro

    @Oliver Schlöbe – Nope. Their system is being integrated straight into core for menu management.


  3. Oliver Schlöbe

    @Jeffro – Ah, okili dokili. I thought I read something about this becoming a Core Plugin, but I guess I was misunderstanding something there.

    From the link above:

    … it looks like we’ll be incorporating the Woo Custom Navigation system into core. I’ve spoken with Woo and they are working on turning their custom menu system into a core patch.

    I am hoping they make it a new function, maybe menu() or something similar, so theme authors can choose to use it … or not.


  5. Justin Tadlock

    @Edward Caissie – They’ll probably end up using something like what’s already been suggested in the original Track ticket:

    add_theme_support( 'menus' );

    I think also, this is a functions for a core plugins, to much for all users and the core :(


  7. Jason Pelker

    That’s crazy!! How exactly does Woo benefit from this?

    Anyway, this is a giant leep–not just in functionality, but really in community, as well. Commercial, plus open source working with each other? Wait, next you’ll tell me cats and dogs are living together. Or that there’s a black president!

    This is great stuff, but it seems upgrading will create some serious breakage given home many customizations folks have made in this area.

    It looks great guys ;) I hope they will not forget about custom linked items, separators and pure custom html/php option…

    This is some really brilliant menu system! As soon as I heard mjepson (?) say ‘you can add your own link’ – I went WOO! :) Truly an exciting development. A big thank you to the developers of course, and to Jeff for keeping up posted!

    Big thanks to Woo for giving back to the community

    It’s really exciting. i bet it will solve many headaches and hours of explanation for the less Wp-educated users. Thanks to Woo!

    Have to admit that menu system looks fantastic!

    I always prefer to be able to edit something myself – but not everyone can do that…


  15. shawn

    This is a fantastic move. After using their nav system already I am 100% sold on having it a core function, or at least being able to call the function in my themes. Hands down the best nav system that I have come across… congrats guys!


  16. Edward Caissie

    @Justin Tadlock – That seems like a sensible approach. It appears to be a powerful addition to functionality; and, one that may require a great deal of focus for theme designers. I’m looking forward to its release …


  17. Martin

    @Jason Pelker – That’s crazy!! How exactly does Woo benefit from this?

    Well how many people will be going to the WooThemes site reading up on this new menu system until WP 3.0 comes out? Great advertising imo, drive people to see their theme templates…. ;)

    Either way, great to see a great tool like this being placed into the core

    How does Woo benefit ?

    1. Community goodwill. If you make millions on WordPress you give back !!
    2. Compatibility which saves Woo a lot of work and support hours.
    3. Marketing arguments to use in their great branding/marketing machine.
