[resolved] [twenty eleven] deleted menus in child theme still showing (2 posts)

    hello,

    i'm running a self-hosted wp 3.2.1 install with a child of the twenty eleven theme, the wp core code, themes & plug-ins all properly updated.

    my problem is with the menus in my child theme derived from twenty eleven. i put a couple of dummy place-holder menus in there while i was working on other stuff ("contact," "the awful truth"). i've now gone back and moved "contact" to be a nested drop-down menu under a new menu "about," along with a couple of other menu items. however, no matter how many times i save the menu items or refresh the main home page of the blog, the old menu items, "contact," "the awful truth" still show, not the new menus i've worked on.

    i don't have any cache plug-ins or tools activated yet, i am in maintenance mode while i work on this; however, i've taken it out of maintenance mode, refreshed, and the old, deleted menus still show in the browser (safari, google chrome).

    any idea what gives here and how i can make my menus update to what they're currently supposed to be? any help would be most appreciated. thank you in advance.

    best,

    ok, marking this as resolved as i didn't quite understand how menus work, even after reading over the menu stuff here in forums and in the codex. i had to have a friend walk me through it.

    for the record, i think the tabs above, not just the menu items below, should be able to to be "drag & dropped" into their positions sideways, etc.

    also, there is a persistent problem with needing to do a clean refresh to see the menus updated to what i changed correctly. i am in maintenance mode, while i'm work on the blog, but don't have any caching (Super Cache, etc.) currently activated. i've updated & optimized the database tables several times, but still run into this problem. any suggestions here? should i report this as a bug in 3.1.2? if so, where do i report bugs? please advise.

    best,
