  • Resolved strofe


    I am trying to add pages to my secondary menu, but they have started to turn up in my primary menu instead. Does it mean that my secondary menu is full? (In fact, I have more than one thousand pages in it.) How can the problem be fixed?

    In theory, there is no limit. Your host, however, can limit the resources available to generate links. This thread might provide you some options:



    I tried to put all the pages I wanted off the top menu in another menu, but it didn’t work. Contacting my host, HostGator, they found out that a limit indeed had been reached for the “max_input_vars” setting for this package’s PHP scripts, and they increased it from 1000 to 5000. So, now it functions, and I am happy!

    I’m continuing this thread, because now I have a similar problem. I’m using the “Hide Pages” plug-in by Peter Coughlin, which allows me to hide pages from the Top Menu. I have now reached 1,275 pages on my website, and new pages that I am adding aren’t turning up neither on the Top Menu nor in the “Hide Pages” register. It seems to me that I have reached a new limit somewhere. I need to add a few hundred pages more and would be happy if someone was able to fix this problem.
