I just bought and started using. I immediately ran into a problem. An extremely long description showed up on two of my menu items.

First, where are these descriptions coming from?

Second, how can I delete them and add text that I want?

The description feature was one of the reasons I bought, but I can’t figure out how to edit them.

See this screenshot for image of description problem: https://www.screencast.com/t/jN0H17PjsAXE

Hello bvas,

The description of each item is the text that is set in default WordPress “Description” field of item, when you edit the menu in administration environment.

The FMM plugin’s code doesn’t edit/change description’s value (just display it), so I can’t tell you where the text is coming from in first item’s description of the screenshot. Actually it can’t appear without existing somewhere, so as a first step must locate the source of description’s text. If you can’t find it, it means that somewhere in code (eg. in theme, or another plugin) there is a mechanism that generates the text and assigns it in item’s description, so this mechanism should be disabled.

At the moment, I would like from you to try to locate the description’s text source and using the form in my profile page send me the name of the active theme and the link of your site where I can see the navigation menu of the screenshot. After this I’ll guide you to solve any dysfunction.

About the second item’s description of the screenshot, I think that the solution of first item’s problem will cover this too.

Best regards!

Hey there!

My host currently handles updating my plugins, and as part of his routine, he updated the Flexible Mega Menu Aug 18 update on Monday, as well as 3 other plugins.

However, it seems that the update to Flexible Mega Menu dramatically failed. Multiple files within the folder were missing or incorrect and the plugin folder renamed itself (adding -wp-plugin-UgVywh to the end, forcing it to disable in Wordpress).

I didn’t catch this until late Monday night. I tried renaming the folder, but this didn’t work, so I settled for uploading the zip of the plugin and extracting it in my plugin folder. From there, the navigation menu itself seemed to work fine.

... Except then 2 hours later, when I checked my site and noticed that all of my widgets had “reset” themselves. When I checked the widget area in my dashboard, all of my widgets had been moved to that lower left-hand section of the page reserved “abandoned” widgets.

I dragged and dropped the widgets back into place, which seemed to fix the problem.

... But two hours later, the widgets had reset themselves again.

My host did a database restore to before the plugin updates were applied and, in the beginning, restoring to that database put my widgets back where they should be… except, yet again, 2 hours later, the widgets had reset.

I dragged and dropped the widgets back and also disabled another plugin that had been updated at the same time as Flexible Mega Menu on Monday (called Display Widgets: https://wordpress.org/plugins/display-widgets/ ). I did this yesterday afternoon and watched the site all evening; everything seemed to be fine…. except I woke up this AM to the widgets reset again.

I just went through a final time, drag + dropped the widgets back. I converted all text widgets to Custom HTML, figuring it can’t hurt. I also removed the search widget I had in Flexible Mega Menu.

And on that note, that’s why I’m contacting you. I’m wondering if you might have any insight as to why this “widget reset” might be happening, as this all started after the Flexible Mega Menu updated failed, and upon resolution and updating to the latest build, I’ve had issues with my widgets, which Flexible Mega Menu has some customization settings for. And up until this morning, I had a custom widget in my menu (it was a search box), which “could” be a link between the problems. I don’t know for sure yet since I only just tried removing the search box, but the connection between the update and the timing of this issue at least seems to suggest there would be some relation.

My host is completely dumbfounded by this problem, and he’s also on a late summer vacation, so his support options for me are currently very limited. I’m at a complete loss as to how I can resolve this. I’ve never encountered this issue before yesterday.

Thanks for the reply!

Since I last posted my message, the widgets reset themselves a 5th time, so I went into my plugins folder, deleted the Flexible Mega Menu folder, and uploaded + extracted the previous version (2.0.2). Right now I’ve been running Flexible Mega Menu 2.0.2 for about 4 hours now and the widgets have not reset.

If the problem starts up again, I’ll try out your suggestions :D But for right now the 2.0.2 version seems to be stable for me.

Hi – i am interested in purchasing your plugin – can your plugin allow me to recreate a mega menu in this style https://www.johnslots.com/en/ ?

Hello davidmogul,

Because of sub-menus content are mixed (on left list of items, or right various content) the plugin doesn’t provide a specific way to create a navigation menu like this, but gives you the ability to add in your sub-menus widgets content or even pages content.

So, with some more effort (and I’m available to help for whatever need), the desired result is possible to be implemented.

I’m having issues getting my menus to appear on the website? Actually I cannot see my menus at all.

Hi darrylvince,

Before you noticed the problem, the menus was visible or the plugin doesn’t work since the first time you activated it? Could you send me the link of your website? To have direct communication , if you prefer use the contact form in my profile page.

Please check inbox.

Hi darrylvince,

I’ve just answered you message


I am a little confused by the interface of your plugin. I just want to create a menu such as the one shown here, except with tabs instead of headings (so there would be a “mammals” tab, etc, underneath the main menu item “animals”).


Lets say that I have a page for every animal (rabbit, dog, etc), but I don’t have an “animals” page or a “mammals” page. So I create a menu in Appearance>>Menus, and add a custom link “animals” to go in the top menu bar. Then I add custom links “mammals”, etc to be the titles. Then, under “mammals”, I add the actual pages for each animal. How do I set “mammals” to be a tab?

Hi, I have realized why it is not working. When I go to Appearance>menus, I click on the main menu item and select “Flexible mega menu settings”, and turn on tabs. However, every time I click save the changes are erased (when the page reloads, the slider “mega submenu” is off even though I just turned it on).

Hi lukebaumann,

To create the structure of items in a navigation menu, first you have to create the menu (Appearance >> Menus) and edit the plugin’s settings for each item. In these settings you can choose to display the content of a sub-menu in tabs. You can read more about items settings in documentation: http://flexiblemegamenu.com/documentation/#menus-items-editor .

When complete navigation menu’s creation, you can select and edit the menu’s skin using the editor style as also described in documentation: http://flexiblemegamenu.com/documentation/#menu-style-editor .

If for any reason you are not able to save any of the above settings, should be a conflict with the active theme or another plugin.

If the problem remains and you can’t save items settings, please use the contact form in my profile page and send me the name of the theme you use in your site.

Hello. Please write me where I can find a information how to add a description for my FLEXIBLE MEGA MENU items.

Hi MiceCenter,

Items description text isn’t plugin’s feature, but is including in default WordPress settings. If you don’t see description field under items “Navigation Label”, then you have to expand “Screen options” and enable the display of description.

For more information about “Screen options” you can check in official WordPress documentation: https://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Menus_Screen#Screen_Options

Hello. I have a problem with settings of this plugin. I made some changes at style editor, and all is ok at menu previev, but at thge site it looks different: editor previev: http://stoiskapolska.pl/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/1.png at the sitte: http://stoiskapolska.pl/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/2.png what I do wrong?

Hi MiceCenter,

Probably somewhere in your theme (or into another plugin) there are CSS properties that override some of CSS properties of the navigation menu. If I see the navigation menu in your theme, I could tell you what need to do to solve the problems. So, If you have already online the site please send me (here or using the contact form in my profile page) a link where I could check it.
