Menus Elgg uses a single interface to manage its menus. Menu items are added with elgg_register_menu_item(). This is generally used for menus that appear only once per page. For dynamic menus (such as the hover menu for user's avatar), a plugin hook is emitted when the menu is being created. The hook is 'register', 'menu:<menu_name>'. For more details on this,

See also
elgg_view_menu().

Menus supported by the Elgg core Standard menus: site Site navigation shown on every page. page Page menu usually shown in a sidebar. Uses Elgg's context. topbar Topbar menu shown on every page. The default has two sections. footer Like the topbar but in the footer.

Dynamic menus (also called just-in-time menus): user_hover Avatar hover menu. The user entity is passed as a parameter. entity The set of links shown in the summary of an entity. river Links shown on river items. owner_block Links shown for a user or group in their owner block. filter The tab filter for content (all, mine, friends) title The buttons shown next to a content title. longtext The links shown above the input/longtext view. login Menu of links at bottom of login box Register an item for an Elgg menu

Warning
Generally you should not use this in response to the plugin hook: 'register', 'menu:<menu_name>'. If you do, you may end up with many incorrect links on a dynamic menu.
A menu item's name must be unique per menu. If more than one menu item with the same name are registered, the last menu item takes priority.
See also
elgg_view_menu() for the plugin hooks available for modifying a menu as it is being rendered.
ElggMenuItem::factory() is used to turn an array value of $menu_item into an ElggMenuItem object.

The constructor and factory support the following array of menu item options: name => STR Menu item identifier (required) text => STR Menu item display text as HTML (required) href => STR Menu item URL (required) false = do not create a link. null = current URL. "" = current URL. "/" = site home page.

Warning
If href is false, the tag will not appear, so the link_class will not apply. If you put tags in manually through the 'text' option the default CSS selector .elgg-menu-$menu > li > a may affect formatting. Wrap in a if it does.)

contexts => ARR Page context strings section => STR Menu section identifier title => STR Menu item tooltip selected => BOOL Is this menu item currently selected parent_name => STR Identifier of the parent menu item link_class => STR A class or classes for the tag item_class => STR A class or classes for the tag deps => STR One or more AMD modules to require

Additional options that the view output/url takes can be passed in the array. Custom options can be added by using the 'data' key with the value being an associative array.

Parameters
string$menu_nameThe name of the menu: site, page, userhover, userprofile, groupprofile, or any custom menu
mixed$menu_itemA object or an array of options
Returns
bool False if the item could not be added
