  • Client had an odd problem. With this plugin activate, he couldn’t add a new menu item. Site would return an error, this site is not working, can’t respond to the current request. Disabling the plugin fixed the issue.

    Can you explain what you meant by “he couldn’t add a new menu item”? Also what theme are you using. I have seen some themes which could not use the plugin.

    Appearance > Menus

    Any page, post or link he tried to add to the top navigation menu resulted either in a timeout or an error that the website could not respond. Chrome wording.

    I disabled plugins one by one to find the problema and when I disabled this one, the error went away. It made no sense to me since it had been working previously.

    Theme is Newspaper by tagdiv.

    Thanks for you reply. Let me test it out and check with Newspaper theme if it is a free version. Did you check by using other themes. I ask this as the last few reported problems were related to bugs in other themes.

    Let me test it out.

    Hi Rick,

    Sorry for the delay in responding as I had some personal problems to attend to.

    I checked out my experimental site, http://www.drpetersnews.com/test/blog/#, with 3 different themes. First was Twenty Fourteen theme. Here I manage to create a new menu and display it. Then I searched for free newspaper themes as “Newspaper by tagdiv” was not a free theme. I tested with

    1. i-transform https://wordpress.org/themes/i-transform/
    2. justwrite https://wordpress.org/themes/justwrite/
    3. Hueman http://presscustomizr.com/hueman/

    These were randomly picked themes as they looked more like newspaper themes as mentioned in https://colorlib.com/wp/free-magazine-wordpress-themes/. The first two needed extra plugins for them to work but I did not install them. All themes seemed to be able to allow me to display additional menus (One or two of the menu settings did not work ie top or bottom or side bar position of menu. Every time I changed the theme I had to go back to “Appearance > Menus” and set the Menu settings.) I did not get any error messages and the menus displayed well.

    You can view the site and it is left with the Hueman theme on. The additional menu is at the bottom of the page.

    I would suggest that you contact the developers and report this problem to them and see if they can fix it.

    Best regards,
    Peter Achutha
