    Hi. I can’t find the menu editing function now that I have installed 3.5.1. Please advise.

    Thanks, Jim

    See Appearance -> Menus

    That’s where it’s missing from (See title of my post). If it is happening to me I’m sure it is happening to someone else.

    Site url?

    Site is:

    Not sure that will help much because the missing menu function is on the dashboard…

    I’m aware of that. 🙂 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.

    I’m having the same problem. Has anyone resolved this issue?

    /wp-admin > Appearance > Menus > original custom menu I created is missing, however the menu structure is still in place.

    Diagnostics so far:
    ~ deactivated all plugins one by one first.
    ~ switched to Twenty Twelve theme, problem still exists.
    ~ reset plugins folder via FTP.
    ~ tried to find custom menu name in MySQL.
    ~ searched for too long until I found this post.

    I could try and add another custom menu, but since the original is still showing on the public side of the site, I’m thinking I’m going to do more harm.

    I am also having this problem on one of client’s site. I have uninstalled, upgraded and reinstalled plugins and I have switched to the twenty-ten template. No luck with any of it.

    Wow….just had a look at how old this thread is. Not very encouraging. 🙁

    Hi dragonflyfla,

    My solution was to simply duplicate the menu. The original menu is gone, although it still may be showing on the site. Anyway, I just duplicated the menu and it checked that all the links were correct and it worked fine.

    Good luck.

    Thanks Mark. We finally got it back. A couple of plugins were friendly with the new wordpress upgrades.
