    I only wanted to delete a few menu items and accidentally deleted the entire menu. Older posts on the internet say that I have to rebuild it. Is there any new quick solution to restore it? Note: I am pretty much a WP beginner. I can follow basic instructions and screenshots but will have to ask someone else if it comes to codes etc.

    Hi There,

    If you did it through the WP backend, you need to restore the entries from wp_posts and wp_postmeta. Look for the nav_menu_item post type, grab any row that uses that. Then note the associated IDs and grab the rows from wp_postmeta that use those IDs as Post ID. That should restore your menu.

    try to follow the above steps, hope this will be help
