Custom Post Type Submenu


Adds a new menu item type that shows all posts for a given post type as children. If the post type has an archive, the parent menu item will link to the archive. If there is no archive for a given post type, the parent will link to the first child.

For Example: If you have a custom post type “products”, adding “products” to a nav-menu will result in a menu item “products” with all products in the submenu.
