Yesterday i was changing my personal blog’s theme due to compatibility problem with WordPress 3.1.1. FYI, the theme was developed for 3.0 version so it has a problem on its custom post type archive page. However, weird thing happened: the custom nav setting page could not be accessed. Weird, because all dashboard pages worked well except that page.
After assessing the situation and did some google search, i found the simple explanation and fix for this issue: apparently the problem happened because of the existence of custom post type item (which was supported in previous theme but not supported in previous theme) in custom nav settings. I made custom post-type on previous theme but hadn’t included it on the current theme.
To fix this, here’s the simple how-to:
- Activate the previous theme (the one with custom-post type in it)
- Access the custom nav page
- Delete the nav menu item which comes from the custom post type
- Go back to appearance settings page
- Activate the current theme
That’s it. Go check to your custom nav page whether it has solved the issue or not.
I hope you find this tutorial useful for you.
