I have a weird issue with the navigation menus in Abundance. I added a bunch of new items today, reloaded my site, and noticed that the last item on my menu had disappeared. I looked, and sure enough, it was gone in the WP admin too. I added it back in and saved the menu. I scrolled to the bottom, and it wasn’t there.
I then removed another menu item and added the other one back in. That worked. So there’s something going on that is limiting the number of menu items I can have in the main menu.
I thought this might be a PHP or server setting that I needed to have changed, so I contacted my host. They couldn’t see any errors in the server log or anything unusual. They suggested I try changing the theme. I tried that thinking that couldn’t possibly be the issue, but it actually worked just fine when I was using another theme.
I made my menu modifications again with the other theme activated and everything was fine. I switched back to Abundance and all the menu items were there. Unfortunately, changing themes removes any manual links I use in the drop-down mega menus. For example, I have some menus that are just some text content with some links, and those links disappear if I save the menus with another theme activated. I’m at a loss for what to do.
Can anyone think of any reasons why the number of menu items I can add would be limited? Again, this only affects the abundance theme. Thanks.November 24, 2012 at 8:17 am #98286
Have a look at this article: http://swordfishsoup.co.uk/cant-add-more-menus-to-wordpress-custom-menus/

Thanks for the reply, Peter, but I don’t believe that is the problem. I found a similar article in my search and it I don’t have this Sushonin installed on my server. Also, like I said, I can add to the menu without problems if I have a different theme activated. Only when Abundance is activated do I have this problem.

In this case please check your allocated memory value ( http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP ).

Unfortunately, that didn’t resolve the problem either. Any other suggestions? This is becoming a real problem.November 30, 2012 at 8:13 am #98290
Abundance itself does not introduce any limitations on the code level so it’s a php configuration issue for sure. Did you try to increase the php execution time? Did you contact your hoster – maybe they can provide more information based on the error logs, etc.?April 12, 2013 at 2:10 am #98291
I am just realising I have this issue today. I have 74 categories in my main menu, and just today I tried to add another but to no effect. It keeps removing the last one I add, regardless of what category it is. I increased my WP memory to 96 and that is not fixing the issue. I really need to fix this as I will be needing to add additional menu items in the short term future.April 13, 2013 at 3:47 pm #98292
