#1 Get the ID of the menu that is attached to the specified area [auto-translate]

We registered the menu location with register_nav_menu(). The location has the label my_location. Then we created a menu in the admin and attached it to that location. Then the following code will work like this:

$locs = get_nav_menu_locations();

print_r( $locs );

/* Will withdraw:
Array
(
	[toolbar] => 694
)
*/

#2 Allows the 'editor' role to modify menus

add_action( 'admin_menu', 'allow_menu_editor', 99 );

function allow_menu_editor() {

	$arr_menu = array_filter( get_nav_menu_locations() );

	if( ! empty( $arr_menu ) ){
		$obj_role = get_role( 'editor' );
		$obj_role->add_cap( 'edit_theme_options' );
	}
}

$menu_name = 'menu1';

echo sprintf( '<h3>%s</h3>', get_nav_menu_title( $menu_name ) ?: __( 'Insert menus', 'textdomain' ) );
wp_nav_menu( [
	'theme_location' => $menu_name,

function get_nav_menu_title( $menu_name ) {
