links of sub-items in menu-bar changed mysteriously (37 posts)

    Since 3.8.1 the links in the menu-bar changed mysteriously. Sub-items now have the main menu item in their url.
    The website is http://kirtan.nu/.
    For example: the sub-item "kirtan-uitleg" (sorry, the site is in Dutch) under the main-menu-item "(wat is) kirtan" used to be http://kirtan.nu/kirtan-uitleg/.
    Now it has changed to http://kirtan.nu/wat-is-kirtan/kirtan-uitleg/
    The original sub-item urls are redirected to the new longer ones.
    Any idea on how this might have happened?
    I also have deactivated a breadcrumb-plugin. Could that have anything to do with it?

    Thanx
    Hans

    I have the same problem- the link from my main menu disappeared just like this. Crazy and people bombard me with request exactly for that menu part.
    look: http://www.povvi.com/blog

    It simply does not reactant all.

    PLEASE, HELP!

    @Zuzliak: If you require assistance then, as per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic.

    @hansbeen: Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder and wp-config.php & root .htaccess files - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Yes, you said: deactivating all plugins ...

    Because I do not want use Jigoshop, I deactivated it already yesterday and today I tried to delete jigoshop from my plugins- but this is simply not possible as the systems shows only fatal error, but does not delete the plug in

    this:

    Fatal error: Class 'jigoshop' not found in /nfs/c03/h03/mnt/53858/domains/povvi.com/html/wp-content/plugins/jigoshop/classes/jigoshop_options.class.php on line 549

    Download a fresh copy of this plugin to your computer, unpack the zip file and upload the plugin's folder to wp-content/plugins using FTP. Once that is done, try deleting the plugin again.

    And, yes, there is method in this particular piece of madness. ;-)

    Esmi, please, I'm not that advanced in pc technology- can you maybe guide me here? Do I have to do it via my blog-plugins or straight from wordpress site?
    Thank you very much.

    No. :-)

    I'm suggesting a fresh upload of the plugin so we can try and get the deletion to run successfully. Deleting the plugin via WordPress should force a clear out of all database tables etc that were previously used by jigoshop. Deleting plugins using FTP doesn't trigger this kind of clear out.

    I deactivated all the plug-ins, no difference.
    It only happened after the update to 3.8.1, it seems a problem of the update to me. On my other websites (3.7.1, not updated) no problems.

    Default theme makes no difference

    The plugin-folder seems ok to me by FTP, no sign of the breadcrumbs-plugin

    Re-uploading all files & folders seems a kind of drastic action, not even sure how to do that...

    I think it is better to continue the other discussion with Zuzlak on a separate topic? It seems you are discussing a whole different problem, or am I wrong?

    And the most interesting is - this morning it was still ok without any problem. Just one hour ago- my Blog folder in main menu does not work anymore. All the rest is ok.

    @ Zuzliak: my point is: I started a topic on changed url's in sub-Items in the menu, but now I am getting a lot of mails on deleting jigoshopa, a plugin I don't have.
    You see the point in stating your own topic?

    @hansbeen: Please accept my apologies. I should have checked that this was Zuzliak's topic more thoroughly.

    @Zuzliak: Please continue by opening your own topic.

    @@hansbeen: Can you replicate your problem using the default Twenty Fourteen theme with all plugins deactivated?

    Is your custom menu set up correctly? Have you checked each menu item? Or tried setting up the menu again?

    MyBlog in menu works now perfect- just it happened, but my new page in menu "atelier" doesn't show the posts which it includes - it's a mystery

    @esmi: it worked ok for 2 years, and after the update it went wrong. I will try o set up one menu-item with sub-item to test

    I removed 1 menu-item and sub-item, saved the menu, and then added the items again, saved, and it stayed the same.
    Isn't there a place where one can influence the way the links themselves are below the names in the menu?
