WordPress: Using a custom nav walker to create navigation menus in plain <a> tags. That is the <ul> and <li> tags are not present. Very usef

<?php 

// In your template files like footer.php

// The items_wrap value ('%3$s') removes the wrapping <ul>, while the custom walker (Nav_Footer_Walker) removes the <li>'s.

wp_nav_menu(array('items_wrap'=> '%3$s', 'walker' => new Nav_Footer_Walker(), 'container'=>false, 'menu_class' => '', 'theme_location'=>'footer', 'fallback_cb'=>false ));

?>
<?php

// In your functions.php

class Nav_Footer_Walker extends Walker_Nav_Menu {


	function start_lvl( &$output, $depth = 0, $args = array() ) {
		$indent = str_repeat("\t", $depth);
