Dynamic Menu Product Categories

If you have many Woocommerce product categories adding these to the menu could be very time consuming.  Especially if you have a complex hierarchy. And each time you created or deleted a category in Woocommerce you had to edit the menu as well. But those days are over!

With this Dynamic Menu Product Categories plugin you no longer have to add your product categories in Woocommerce manually to your menu.

You simply install the Dynamic Menu Product Categories plugin. Add a ‘Dynamic Product Category’ item to your menu and that’s it.
All of your product categories will automatically be displayed in your menu – both parent categories and children!

We have even added some cool extra features, so that you can
Hide empty Product Categories
Exclude Product Categories from the menu
Sort parent and child Product Categories by name/count
Display count in the menu.

We have even added a Dynamic Tag Menu Item so that you can also automatically display all of your tags in the menu, with the above functionalities as well.
