Saving navigation menu items very slow

  • Hello,

    I am experimenting with the navigation menu in the header, which can be easily edited in the admin section on ‘wp-admin/nav-menus.php’.
    It seems that I have way too many menu items, and this is causing the a timeout (configured at 30 seconds). I increased this to 60 seconds (in the ‘php.ini’ file, and the operation completes, but the slowness is obviously not acceptable.

    Is there any way this process can be sped up? More specifically, could I directly access the database and change the values for the menu items? If so which tables would I need to look at, and how would I go about it?

    Cheers,
    manojo

    Don’t edit core files unless you really, really, know what you are doing.

    Thanks for the answer. Would there however be any concrete solution to this? I highly doubt sitting around and biting my thumbnails is going to solve the speed problem.
    If anybody could assume that I do know what I am doing and can help me understand the code, even better.

    Cheers,
