I'm building a WordPress site with a large custom menu structure (around 100 items). I had about 100 items in the menu over the weekend, but when I tried to move one item around yesterday, WP suddenly started cutting the menu off at 90 items exactly, and now I can't add any new items.
It also changes the final menu item from "page" to "custom" and places it as a parent item, instead of a child/grandchild, as intended. Upon saving, I get no error messages or any indication that something went wrong.
After searching around, I've discovered a number of discussion threads that suggest this could be a web host issue, having to do with the host's "suhosin" or "max_vars" settings in the site's php.ini file, or that certain settings in the .htaccess file could solve the problem.
I've tried any/all suggestions from these threads, and no luck. I noticed that a number of other people in these threads also seem to have hit a wall.
Any thoughts on how to proceed? Any help appreciated!
