    You do it as which user? And what do you see when you go to example.com/node/add/content_type_machine_name ?

  • Also, what happens if you try that as UID 1 (aka admin, first user)?

Go to structure >> Menus >> Navigation (admin/structure/menu/manage/navigation) and make sure to enable the content type link in that list.

Here I'm showing example for Article Content type.

enter image description here

  • Shouldn't it be "on" by default?

  • @Mołot As far as I know, If it's a core menu (default content types, Article, Basic Page) Yes, it will be "on" by default. Here I added screenshot for better understand. Aug 22 '14 at 12:11
  • yes i have tried to enable it but still it can't appear i really do not know what has happened.

  • @mase you have mentioned "i have created a new content type" how did you create that? I think Molot already asked in comment please respond Aug 22 '14 at 12:15

Just came across this problem, that is a new content type is not showing under Add content (or node/add) even though it was showing under Content types (admin/structure/types)

Check your modules and their permissions. I found that view_unpublished module has a View any unpublished content permission that prevents that content type displaying completely.
