[resolved] Automatic login and logout not showing for main menu (5 posts)

    Spun is no longer showing login or logout as main menu. I set main menu to have 'Automatically add new top-level pages' and that showed a login or logout link automatically. After a month of not using the website the login or logout link is not there. And so is the rest of the top-level pages are not showing.

    So many things could be going on here, it's hard to say without a link to your site. I can tell you Spun's menu has not been updated recently, so I doubt this is a problem with the theme.

    It could be:

    * Your data or configuration was changed. Do all your Pages still exist?
    * Your menu configuration has changed. "Automatically add new top-level pages" is a WordPress core function. Is the option still checked? Have you tried recreating the menu and reassigning it?
    * You're probably running a plugin to display Login/Logout, since that's not a function of the theme, or WordPress itself. Is the plugin not working? You may need to check with the plugin author.
    * Another plugin is causing a conflict. Deactivate all plugins and reactivate them one by one to find the culprit.
    * You're using custom CSS to change the display of the site, and the menu has been accidentally hidden or changed. Revert any custom CSS.

    It's definitely the database. I use an old database and it display's fine. However when I change the database to most recent database using old wordpress files. The login or logout link doesn't show. Where does the login or logout links go in the database so I can fix this?

    Not sure. Since this isn't a theme problem, you might have better luck over in Troubleshooting:

    I fixed it. Thanks for all the help. I would of not been able to fix if it wasn't for your advice on plugins. It was the database storing the wrong value for a plugin. However I don't know if it was storing wrong value in database due to WordPress or the plugin.

    The wp_options table was storing the wrong value for woothemes-sensei-settings. It was storing b = 0 so I changed it to 1. I don't know if WordPress changed this value because WordPress could have changed this value when I changed menu in Dashboard so could be a bug by WordPress since changing a menu settings and then deleting it and making a new menu shouldn't changed WordPress settings for b = 1 . Or could be a bug by WordPress Sensei changing the value. Don't know which one changed it.
    P.S. The plugin is Woothemes Sensei.
