    Hi,

    I’ve seen this in a zillion posts and read what I could find. None of the fixes seem to help. GoDaddy claims the problem is not at their end. So, here goes another question about the problem.

    I used to have about 160 menus/submenus/subsubmenus on my menu page. Suddenly they are gone and I’m limited to about 90 or so. There is a work around, I can add pages that if, numbered correctly, will show up as menu items on the front page. However, I cannot add menu items that point to another URL.

    I’m using Twenty Twelve

    This magazine article talks about the problem, but offers no hope for a cure.

    What to do.

    160? Don’t you think that this is perhaps a little OTT? You are probably hitting a custom menu limitation issue.

    Joe –

    My website is an informational one, and I have many years of archived articles I just took from straight html and created as WP pages. The secondary menu on my site is in that realm of item count (using twenty-fourteen), and I was having the same issue. The actions I found in that article worked:

    Create a php.ini file (I put mine in the root directory of my site).
    Edit it so that it contains:

    max_input_vars = 5000
    suhosin.post.max_vars = 5000
    suhosin.request.max_vars = 5000

    (the article recommended 3000)

    That by itself didn’t do anything, so I contacted my web host, and they did something – stopped/started a service, rebooted, whatever – and it took effect and now I have no issues.
