I am using Features that includes several basic site features such as the main menu and another custom navigation menu. Both are two level menus. I have included the menus in the Feature, but when I select the menu links, only a few of the menu link items are included in the selection list. The balance are missing.

What I have done:

  • I have searched for other issues on Drupal.org, but not found a similar one.
  • I have also examined the links and cannot find a difference between those that are included and those that are not.
  • I have flushed the menu cache.

Has anyone else seen anything like this or have any insights as to how I might fix this?

It could be this issue with features and menus, for which there is a patch: http://drupal.org/node/1283742

Something to be aware of: menu links don’t show up in the admin UI, or get added to the database, if their path does not link to an existing node.

  • Thanks This link sounds correct. The additional menu items all shared the 'node/add' as there link while I am building views to accommodate the actual menu targets.

For future visitors, another possibility I found is link role filtering. I was trying to feature the User-menu | Log in menu-item which is filtered to only display for anonymous users. I verified there were no duplicates and tried uuid-menu-feature patch and it still would not show as an export option. However, once I disabled the anonymous role filtering it showed up.
