I want to create a large menu structure, and the admin pages time out, so I cannot insert them via the admin screens.

How can I insert the menu entries directly in the database?

Thank you

  • Indeed its a subtle bug, appearing for large menu structures only. I do hope its fixed in v4.0 due out August 2014. In the meantime, I try to add the menus directly in the database.
