WP3 menus limited to 16. Tried every config I can. Checked Trac #14134. (2 posts)

    The only reference I can find to this menu problem is in Trac #14134 where the 16 menu object limit was due to suhosin. http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/14134

    Since it is my server I have tweaked suhosin and memory limits to stupidly high levels but still get the same behavior of only 16 menu items - anything after that gets dropped and the last item in the menu gets switched to custom, whether it was a category or page.Makes me wonder if the limit is actually fifteen and a half :)

    Tweaked php.ini:
    suhosin.request.max_value_length = 999999
    suhosin.post.max_value_length = 999999
    suhosin.request.max_vars = 999999
    suhosin.post.max_vars = 999999
    suhosin.request.max_varname_length = 256
    suhosin.request.max_totalname_length = 1024
    suhosin.request.max_array_depth = 200

    Confirmed these configurations are being registered by checking phpinfo and everything is as entered above. Problem exists on other WP installs on this server.

    Tried disabling plugins just in case and did a trace through the WP code confirming that the number of items in the POST array are never more than 16, also restarted the server, waved the dead chicken and turned around three times... no luck.

    Any suggestions?

    having the same problem, also after altering php.ini as per http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/14134. WP 3.1.2.

    Is this a global issue, or just some of us who must have uncommon server configurations?

    Is there any other answer?
