When I access admin/structure/menu/manage/main-menu this should show a list of all of the menu items and enable re-ordering, enabling, etc. This has stopped working and will only display the top level menu (without styles) and sometime just a blank page.

I think it is related to the number of menu items I have. Checking the database for menu_links shows almost 500 entries. Is there a way around this?

Possibly I need to think differently. I am not actually displaying all of the items on the user menu just the top two levels. But by adding node and hiding them I get the breadcrumbs for 'free'. Is there a better way to handle the breadcrumbs that would enable me to remove excess items from the menus?

Thanks in advance Andrew W.

If you want to modify only breadcrumb, then you can use one of below module.

custom breadcrumbs:

Allows administrators to set up parametrized breadcrumb trails for any node type, Views, Panels, Taxonomy vocabularies and terms, paths . This allows node types to have "Home > User Blog > 2005 > January" style breadcrumbs on the node view page itself, synchronizing cleanly with custom views or pathauto aliases. Breadcrumb visibility can be customized via a php snippet.

path breadcrumbs

Path Breadcrumbs module helps you to create breadcrumbs for any page with any selection rules and load any entity from the URL!

  • Thanks for the pointers to these modules. For now, I decided to reduce the number of pages on the menus and so have avoided the problem with the menu admin failing to display.
