Custom Menu Feature Filter

Based on your feedback, you are loving the Custom Menu feature we launched two weeks ago. It’s natural to want that feature enabled for your favorite theme, too. We’re working on adding it to all WordPress.com themes.

In the meantime, you can find themes with Custom Menu support in Appearance→Themes by choosing Custom Menu from the Feature Filters menu.

Custom Menu filter enabled in Appearance→Themes.

We’ll also keep an updated list on the Custom Menu Support page.

    This new menu functionality is great. I was able to remove two widgets — Pages and RSS Feed — from my sidebar when I moved up to the Greyzed theme with the embedded Custom Menu. Extremely handy, thank you!

    I am unable to find any such layout for options with checkboxes on the theme Greyzed! Am I amiss here?

      @vish3116 This isn’t related to a specific theme. You’ll find the filter options by going to Appearance→Themes, then at the far right near the search field, click on Feature Filters to reveal the menu.

    It’s hard to find the right theme when there are so many options that I like – seems there is no one theme that has it all. I’d like a three column theme with the custom menu feature. Wish me luck. Thanks!

    My theme Bueno only supports one menu, I wish it supported more. I like the theme, but should I change it to another theme that support more than one menu? That’s not really my idea. What themes support more than one menu?

    It seems that my lack of enthusiasm for custom menus puts me in a minority of one. I am struck by this commitment: “We’re working on adding it to all WordPress.com themes.” New WP.com features usually go into new themes, leaving the older ones behind. Making an exception for this feature makes a strong statement.

    • Lance Willett

      Thanks for your thoughts, Andrew. To be clear, this isn’t an exception—in the past we’ve retrofitted older themes with new theme features (such as threaded comments) and we plan on continuing to improve older themes with features such as Custom Background and image/gallery improvements.

    This is certainly an improvement. Have to be careful that too many quirky things don’t creep in. The featured image option is really temperamental sometimes.
    But, on balance there’s nothing coming close to WordPress. I like integrating it with SoundCloud – very very neat.

    Do you think you could update older themes (such as Motion) so that they can benefit from the new features that are coming out so fast? I don’t want to give up Motion but I don’t want to be left out when new features arrive.
