Support » Fixing WordPress » 5.0.1 Upgrade Custom Menu Issue

    After the 5.0.1 upgrade to one of our larger sites we ran into problems with both Advanced Custom Fields and custom menus. I see that ACF is aware of the if/conditional/placeholder field issues and will have a fix in their next release but the custom menu is not related to a plugin as far as functionality. The menus simply disappeared from the Menus admin page and recreating doesn’t seem to be an option. I hit the “Save Menu” button twice and the menu label disappears with nothing in its place. There are 3 menus registered through the functions file and it’s worked fine for several years. As a possible fix we installed the classic editor, replaced all core WP files with V-4.9.8 and we’re in the process of rolling the site back to 12/10 thru the host, but most importantly, how can we prevent the same problem with other large websites which basically use the same custom menu system?

    I think you’ll need to wait for the next version of ACF before updating your other sites to WP 5.x.

    I understand that when it comes to ACF but equally important is the disappearance of custom menus. I’m not seeing this reported by anyone else but hoped it might be a known issue.

    I should say I DO appreciate the hard work that goes into these updates and have benefited by the availability of such a robust platform. Just trying to work through this transition!

    Still you have this problem with 4.9.8 version?

    @smalldetails WP 5.0 is a major update. You need to wait for next release of ACF or you need to create new custom plugin with your requirement

    Yes, menu issue persists with 4.9.8. I’m trying to get the host to roll back to 12/10. The menu appears on the front end for desktop but the mobile menu is blank. Both pulled from the same custom menu but for some reason it’s still working for desktop… crazy.

    Oh yes, Do you have using any plugin for the responsive menu? If yes please let me know with the version

    Yes, for resp menu I’m using Responsive Menu Pro (Peter Featherstone) V 3.1.17. The menu obviously exists in the database but the Menus page is blank… none of the original menus are listed and I’m unable to recreate them.

    Ok just try this css its temporary fix.

    Once they release updated version you need to remove this code.

    @media only screen and (min-width: 240px){
    	.fullmenu {
    	    display: block;
    	    background: #a22b30;
    	}
    	#menu-fullmenu a {
    	    display: block;
    	    /* margin-right: 5px; */
    	    padding: 8px;
    	    text-decoration: none;
    	    white-space: nowrap;
    	    font-weight: 500;
    	    font-size: 12px;
    	    color: #EEE;
    	    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
    	}
    }

    If you use this code on your child theme the menu will have appeared

    And if you have any questions please let me know

    Thanks

    That didn’t do it. I’m going to try a different resp menu plugin.
