FAQ

Can Sort Settings Menu alphabetically sort other admin menus?

Sort Settings Menu only sorts the «Settings» section and does not have any options to sort other parts of the administration menu.

A functions_file_sort_settings_menu filter is available that allows additional menus to be sorted via code. For example, if you add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file or to a plugin, both the «Settings» and «Tools» sections will be sorted alphabetically.

// Organize the "Settings" and "Tools" menu in alphabetical order.
add_filter( 'functions_file_sort_settings_menu', function( $menus ) {
    return array( 'options-general.php', 'tools.php' );
} );
