Cannot add new item in menu (pending)

  • Hello,

    I’m really new at wordpress and it’s the first time i try to make a website with that.

    Today, when i logged in, i was inserting pictures to my media library. Then, i wanted to attach pictures to pages/posts and it didn’t work.

    When i preview the page/post, i saw menu had only one item instead of five. So i went to Appearance > Menu.

    I tried to add pages, custom links to the menu but it always appears to be (pending).

    I tried the following but no results:

    – Reinstall (in Dashboard -> updates)
    – Go in phpmyadmin and REPAIR TABLE … USE_FRM for all tables
    – Deactivate all plugin and then reactivate them
    – Delete pictures one by one (massive deletion doesn’t work either)

    Please help me :s

  • Same issue here. did you solve it?

    Same problem here – been looking all day and all forum threads are closed without an update on the solution…..
    Some hints at a corruption in table wp_postsmeta – but I don’t have that table.

    I had this problem, and at least for me it ended up being because the postmeta table in the database was somehow corrupted.

    I solved it (this worked for me but might not for you) by getting the default table wp_postmeta from a newly installed wordpress database. I set up a dummy WordPress site just so I could get at the default database that WordPress sets you up with.

    I then exported/saved the wp_postmeta table from the default database onto my computer, and then imported/uploaded this file onto my website database that didn’t work.

    It immediately let me add pages like before.

    Thanks canyonblvd your trick works for me..
