    add-bookmark-links-to-the-wp_nav_menu

    Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will add bookmarks from a specified category to the wp_nav_menu. This also supports the sub-menu class so you can create pure css dropdown menus.

    	$bookmarks = array();
    	$bookmarks = get_bookmarks("category=$cat");
    
    	if ($bookmarks[0] != '') {
    	    $items .= '<li><a href="#">Bookmarks</a><ul class="sub-menu">';
    	    foreach ( $bookmarks as $bookmark ) {
    		$items .= '<li><a href="'.clean_url($bookmark->link_url).'">'.$bookmark->link_name.'</a></li>';
    	    }
