Re: Custom menu - menu items show only in admin

posts: 289 United States

I think I know what this issue is now, because I had the same problem myself.

When you select all groups this is wrong (which is contradictory to what you might think but I read somewhere, I think on the documentation pages) that this selection box is a logical AND.

In other words for users to see this particular menu item, they must be part of user groups Anonymous AND Registered AND Admin AND... etc. Naturally, most users will not be part of the Admin user group and so they will not see the menu item.

I don't know why the box works this way but it does.

Unless you want only a specific user group to see this menu item then you should just leave these user groups unselected. For example you can select just registered users, and then the menu item becomes invisible for anonymous users but everyone else can see it (assuming all user groups inherit from the registered user group).
