ExampleImagine we're creating a site for a business that will have a section describing the products they offer. We've got the core content types, Page and Story, and we've added our own content type called Product. Then we add a few pages under the Primary links menu, like so:
- <Primary links>
- About Us
The Node Menu Parent module gives us an extra option under the content type settings to choose a specific parent menu item per content type. So we can go to edit the Product content type, choose the Products menu item as the default parent, and now when we go to create a new Product that menu item is automatically chosen for us.
Combined with a module like Auto Menu Title, we can have menu items for our products created automatically without ever looking at the menu settings.
