  • First release!


  • Changed the plugin to store user location is a session variable. This drastically increased page load speed by reducing calls to the database.
  • Fixed problem with conflicting CSS from other plugins


  • Changed plugin name from Location Specific Menu Items by Country to Country Specific Menu Items. I was originally planning to add different types of locations (city, state, continent, etc.) to this plugin and then remove the by Country, but have decided instead to just create a completely new plugin for each type of location.


  • Move list of countries into an array in a seperate file.
