Support » Plugin: Simple Staff List » Simple Staff List Disappears from WordPress menu

  • Resolved andrewjcarl


    Hi Brett,

    Over the weekend the Simple Staff List menu item disappeared from the WordPress backend menu. We can still edit staff members through: /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=staff-member URL though can’t access anything else such as groupings.

    Any suggestions? We have deactivated a few plugins (the site is live so we can’t debug the plugins currently) that are related to custom post types and taxonomies, though the menu item is still gone.

    Please advise. Thank you.

    Hey Andrew,
    What probably happened was that you activated a new plugin, or something that added a new menu item, that happened to have the same menu position as the Simple Staff List plugin. So, the way to fix this is A) Find the menu item that was added and change it’s menu position, or B) Edit line 140 in simple-staff-list.php to
    'menu_position' => whatever-number-you-want
    and just use whatever number you want there.

    Worked perfectly, thanks Brett.

    Is there a long-term solution for this?

    Awesome…glad it worked.

    As for a long-term solution, I’ll be updating the menu_position value of the SSL menu item to a more unique value in the next version. I’m not sure when that will be, however. I’ve been extremely busy lately and will continue to be for the next few months.

    OK, I’ll look for your updates. FYI The plugin worked great for our clients needs, we’re looking forward to using it into the future. Thanks again.
