Menu Attach Block allows you to embed blocks in menu items. You may choose to
replace a menu item entirely with a block, or keep the menu link and embed the
block after it in the wrapper element.

Some basic JavaScript and CSS is included. You can override the Javascript by
altering Backdrop.behaviors.menu_attach_block.

Embedded blocks respect block page and permissions settings.


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at
  • Go to Structure > Menus (admin/structure/menu) > Manage Links.
  • Add a new sub-menu or edit existing sub-menu you want to attach a block to.
  • Select a block in the 'Attach Block' fieldset.
    • If you want to replace the menu link entirely, set as the path.
  • The attached block will now appear in your menu.
