Support » Plugin: Privilege Menu » Heads Up – This plugin deletes all Mega Menu icons installed on current website

  • Resolved cpsharp


    Using Avada theme and had about 20 Font Awesome icons picked out and used for my menu. I installed the plugin and set up a menu item to be specific to logged in users. That part worked but it interfered with Mega Menu (and made it’s functionality not work) so I deactivated the plugin but the Mega Menu settings along with the icons I had used were gone. The plugin definitely does do what it is supposed to do though so if you aren’t using Mega Menu/Font Awesome icons, you should be okay.

    In the FAQ section it states that this plugin uses a modified version of the Nav Walker class. What all the below means, is that on the front-end the plugins SHOULD NOT CONFLICT. But they will conflict when configuring in the backend. Privilege Menu WILL NOT clear the settings for Mega Menu, as this is an issue that Mega Menu should not be updating the options in the DB if the fields are not present in the submitted form. If you configure Privilege Menu FIRST, then disable it, configure Mega Menu, then re enable the Privilege Menu plugin the settings for Privilege Menu will be saved, but if you do it the other way around (Due to the way Mega Menu handles their saving options method) the Mega Menu settings will be cleared. Please note THIS IS NOT an issue with the Privilege Menu plugin.

    “This usually occurs due to a plugin conflict. The Admin Menu Walker can only have one custom walker so any other plugin that uses a custom Admin Menu Walker will cause conflicts with Privilege Menu plugin.

    WordPress does not yet have sufficient hooks in this area of the admin panel. Due to this plugins are forced to load a modified custom Admin Menu Walker. The custom Admin Menu Walker is limited to one so only one Admin Panel menu modification plugin can be active at one time.

    Although this feature has been requested since 3.6 it still hasn’t been added to the WordPress Core. There’s a possibility that support for “Nav Menu UI” Hooks will be added in WordPress 4.0:″
