I’m developing a site that has about 200-300 pages, that each needs a custom side-menu, linking to primarily internal pages.
So what’s the best way to do this?
Current preferred: Using ACF?
Even though that Gutenberg is just around the corner, then it was possible to create an ACF-field, that is just a regular WYSIWYG-editor, as an extra field in the post. And then if it was blank, then it’d inherit the navigation from it’s parent.
2nd best option: Using menus?
If I used menus, then I would have to created 200-300 ‘display locations’ in my functions.php-file. And it would be a mess, matching the correct menu with the given page. So I assume this isn’t the best way to do it.
3rd best option: Using a plugin?
I looked around, but couldn’t find anything for this.
I can’t use widgets, since it would mean a widget per post, which would be a mess.
Any suggestions? Or are ACF really the best choice?
