    Hi all,

    Need to pick some brains if I may, I have been changing a site over from joomla to WP, I have created the WP version of the site on a localserver, when I upload the new wp version to the website it will be hosted on about 60% of the menu's seem to vanish, which is no big deal as the pages are still there so I can just add them back to the menu..WRONG! so much for no big deal! When I try to create the missing menu's and click save they just vanish again!.. could really do with some help here guys and gals! Obviously its a url issue going from localhost to a live site..

    I have changed site url via phpmyadmin so I know that is fine, but still the menu's just vanish, as this is a charity website I am DESPERATE to sort this! Helpppppp please.

    You might be hitting a custom menu limitation issue.

    Well I can go well past the 16 that is reported there plus there is no errors to that effect, when I upload the mysql file into phpmyadmin all menu items are there, as soon as I try to save a new menu item about 50 - 60 percent of all menu items vanish, after that i cant save any menus as they just vanish again!

    Also when I try to add the item to menu again, I add it as a child item and it saves as a parent item, then when I try to save it as a child item again it then just vanishes for good

    16 is not a hard & fast number. It varies from server to server.

    well I am at a complete loss on this one, this is about the 10th site I have migrted to WP doing exactly the same as I did on the other 9, this only difference is that this site consists of mainly iframes as pages, I have now tried useing the default theme and default permalinks and the result is the same, the second I click save menu 60 percent of menu items are gone, even if I just click save when there is nothing to save. It would have to be for the one charity site I have wouldnt it! that is what upsets me the most!

    Just noticed something really strange, when I select the item to add to the menu it shows as a page, then when I click save (takes ages to save) the item that was a page has now changed to a custom item, it is then when I click save again it vanishes, this is after I have lost 60 percent of all items

    Yes they are all on the same VPS.. Here is a table of events..

    1. upload sql file to phpmyadmin.
    2. go to admin - menus in WP and everything is there as it shouls be.
    3. click save menu and 60 percent vanishes.
    4. Tick 1 page to add to menu which shows as a page is menu list, click save and it changes to custom item, click save again and then vanished!

    Definitely a server issue.

    well I can not understand how that is, think I will try deleting the menu and try to rebuild it from scratch, if that does not work then I guess that one site will have to stay as a joomla site
