Running WP 3.9.1

I've got lots of pages and sub pages.

When I get to create menu lots of sub pages doesn't display on the right level, but some do?

This is how the pages metabox is displayed

The pages metabox should display something more like this


Number in screenshot are a bit screwed sorry about that.

The problem is after the first few all the pages are displayed on the same level but they shouldn't.

It should look like this

  • Page 1
    • SubPage A of Page 1
    • SubPage B of Page 1
      • SubPage 1 of SubPage B
      • SubPage 2 of SubPage B
      • SubPage 3 of SubPage B
  • Page 2
    • SubPage A of Page 2
      • SubPage 1 of SubPage A
      • SubPage 2 of SubPage A
    • SubPage B of Page 2
      • SubPage 1 of SubPage B
      • SubPage 2 of SubPage B


Any idea what cause this or how to fix it, so i can manage my menu?

try to deactivate all plugins and return to default theme and check if it solves the problem. – Mark Kaplun Jul 28 '14 at 15:12
Just retested deactivating all plugins and activate the default theme, still have the same problem. – pyverret Jul 28 '14 at 15:22
there should be a scroll bar that lets you scroll in the list. maybe it is some problem with your browser. – Mark Kaplun Jul 28 '14 at 15:38
I can scroll fine. Just tested it with chrome, firefox, safari on mac and ie on pc. – pyverret Jul 28 '14 at 15:56
then it is totally not clear what are you asking about – Mark Kaplun Jul 28 '14 at 17:22

Found a fix.

Seems pagination is breaking the display of the the Pages hierarchy in the metabox.

Here is the fix to disable page pagination in the nav menu metabox
