    Wrong Section. I use this plugin and have no problems with it. You can't prove that the plugin itself caused this issue so I wouldn't blame the plugin. :)

    I'm the plugin author for Simply Exclude. The plugin makes not code changes to you core code, other plugins or your theme. The plugin works purely on hooks which are executed when the page is request. These hooks effect the queries use by WordPress when displaying the categories, tags authors, pages.

    If you didn't like the plugin then please just deactivate it. This will disable all interactions with the WordPress hooks. Nothing is left to do except remove the plugin from your system.

    If you are still having issues please feel free to contact me directly.

    kperrone, thanks for your response on this.

    Best,

    P-

    Apparently it can interfere and cause issues with other plugins.

    I installed this plugin and it forced all my previously excluded menu items to appear, causing 5 rows of navigation buttons in the header.

    I've already Deactivated it and Deleted all the files - unfortunately, the problem remains... Whatever remnants were left behind, are still causing issues with the navigation and it's a nightmare because the site is live and gets a lot of traffic.

    If this is a database issue now, this really stinks because I don't have access to the database and of course, didn't expect such a problem. The last backup I have is from 3 days ago (several posts since then)... Not sure how to go about fixing this just yet, but I've been at it for about 30 min. now. I'll post the solution when and if I get to fix this thing for anyone else that might come across this again.
