Simple:Press Documentation


Simple:Press Member Manager adds a very useful control option under each of your menu items that allow you to control who can see the menu item.

This option is very useful when you want to have your LOGIN page appear only to logged out users and your LOGOUT link available only to users that are logged in:

You can find this under the normal menu items on the core WordPress APPEARANCE->MENUS page.

Menu Tags

SPMM includes a number of “tags” to help you personalize a menu.  With these tags you can:

  • Show the user name on a menu item (eg: logout john doe).
  • Show an image of the user’s avatar inside the menu item

To enable these features you can use the special tags inside the menu labels.  These include:

  • {first_name}
  • {last_name}
  • {username}
  • {nickname}

This allows you to personalize your menu options:

You can also show a user photo in the menu by using the {user_avatar_small} tag. But, in order to use this properly, you will need to use CSS to adjust the image so that it fits properly on your theme.  There is nothing we can do to make this feature look great with every theme so you must know how to use CSS in order to use it!
