I still have them in my “appearance” “menu” and have tried to re-save the menu section but while viewing the page, the drop down selections are not there. I deactivated all plug ins and started reactivating them one at a time.
I could not reactivate one of them: it read 500 internal error so I deactivated it again. WP supersized was this plug-in.
The culprit for eliminating drop down access was NextGEN Gallery.
I had just “updated” that plug-in before the problem happened. And the last time I had updated it, I lost the ability to see gallery slideshows.
I am not a programmer… just a user and I’m pretty confused. Anyone have any suggestions in layman terms?
