User Menus – Nav Menu Visibility


User Menus is the perfect plugin for websites which have logged in users.

The plugin gives you more control over your nav menu by allowing you to apply visibility controls to menu items e.g who can see each menu item (everyone, logged out users, logged in users, specific user roles).

It also enables you to display logged in user information in the navigation menu e.g “Hello, John Doe”.

Lastly, the plugin allows you to add login, register, and logout links to your menu.

  • Display menu items to everyone
  • Display menu items to only logged out users

Simple yet powerful this is the very best plugin I never knew I needed until I had it and when combined with the functionality and power of Divi Theme Builder display conditions (by Elegant Themes) creating a site with different role based content has never been so simple and valuable. Kudos to the developers, you have truly created something of extreme value!
