One topic that has been discussed a number of times during the development cycle of WordPress 3.0 is how to handle menu management. At first, it looked like the team was going to go with a widget based menu management system but during one of the most recent meetings, that was put on hold to evaluate if that was the right thing to do. Today, we’ve learned that the debate is mostly over and menu management will take the form of the Woo Navigation Menu system. If you’ve never seen it before, watch the video.
Based on what I’ve seen in the video, the menu management system looks like it will be very easy to use. A big kudos goes out to the WooThemes team for allowing their navigation system to be integrated into the core of WordPress for the benefit of all users. A classy move by them. Keep an eye on Woothemes.com as they will be publishing more info about this development on Monday.
So this is going to be a Core Plugin maintained by the WooThemes Team and supervised by Automattic?
