Admin Menu Groups


Admin Menu Groups allows you to create nested menus in the WordPress admin sidebar navigation and organize all menu
items in groups as needed.

A few notes about the sections above:

  • Create groups to organize the admin menu
  • Put less frequently used or advanced options in their own group
  • Hide unused items in the admin menu
  • Group related menu items


  1. Upload plugin-name.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Setup your menu on the Admin Menu Groups settings page


How do I organize my admin menu?

After installing the plugin, navigate to the Admin Menu Groups settings page and reorder, hide or create groups as needed

WP menu bar gets messy. This plugin helps to clean it up, and do it very fast. It does what other plugins don't allow - 2nd level submenu. You can create a new group and simply drag menu items with their submenu links into it. It took me less than a minute to fully rearrange my menu exactly the way I wanted. Amazing plugin, I will use it on every site from now on. This should be the first plugin to be installed.

I'm very happy to have found this plugin, after trying some other complicated (and expensive) systems, which don't allow to have more than 1 sub-level. This plugin solves this problem and is very easy to use. Today is the end of my Admin menus incredible mess! Thank you so much !!

Works as advertised, some menus are visually bugged a bit when plugins have wired icons, wish it had option for dividers, but overall does what it say.

This plugin was just what I needed to group my custom post types. Worked as expected. Thank You.
