WordPress: Using a custom nav walker to create navigation menus in plain <a> tags. That is the <ul> and <li> tags are not present. Very useful if you want to create simple links that can be centered with a simple text-align:center on the containing element.
<?php
// In your template files like footer.php
// The items_wrap value ('%3$s') removes the wrapping <ul>, while the custom walker (Nav_Footer_Walker) removes the <li>'s.
wp_nav_menu(array('items_wrap'=> '%3$s', 'walker' => new Nav_Footer_Walker(), 'container'=>false, 'menu_class' => '', 'theme_location'=>'footer', 'fallback_cb'=>false ));
?>
<?php
// In your functions.php
class Nav_Footer_Walker extends Walker_Nav_Menu {
function start_lvl( &$output, $depth = 0, $args = array() ) {
$indent = str_repeat("\t", $depth);
$output .= "\n$indent\n";
}
function end_lvl( &$output, $depth = 0, $args = array() ) {
$indent = str_repeat("\t", $depth);
$output .= "$indent\n";
}
function start_el( &$output, $item, $depth = 0, $args = array(), $id = 0 ) {
$indent = ( $depth ) ? str_repeat( "\t", $depth ) : '';
$class_names = $value = '';
$classes = empty( $item->classes ) ? array() : (array) $item->classes;
$classes[] = 'menu-item-' . $item->ID;
$class_names = join( ' ', apply_filters( 'nav_menu_css_class', array_filter( $classes ), $item, $args ) );
$class_names = $class_names ? ' class="' . esc_attr( $class_names ) . '"' : '';
$id = apply_filters( 'nav_menu_item_id', 'menu-item-'. $item->ID, $item, $args );
$id = $id ? ' id="' . esc_attr( $id ) . '"' : '';
$output .= $indent . '';
$attributes = ! empty( $item->attr_title ) ? ' title="' . esc_attr( $item->attr_title ) .'"' : '';
$attributes .= ! empty( $item->target ) ? ' target="' . esc_attr( $item->target ) .'"' : '';
$attributes .= ! empty( $item->xfn ) ? ' rel="' . esc_attr( $item->xfn ) .'"' : '';

$item_output = $args->before;
$item_output .= '<a'. $attributes .'>';
$item_output .= $args->link_before . apply_filters( 'the_title', $item->title, $item->ID ) . $args->link_after;
$item_output .= '</a>';
$item_output .= $args->after;
