Support » Fixing WordPress » Restore accidentally deleted menu

  • 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
