    Sounds like JavaScript may be turned off. What browser are you using, do you have anything blocking JS?

    Check the browser console for possible JS errors.

  1. Try with another browser.

  2. Check your browser console : Ctrl + Maj + I Or right click and inspect.

    If you find error : First try to disable each plugin one after the other. In order to find out which plugin can generate the errors.


    -Modify the wp-config.php file and change (or add this) :

define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', false );
define( 'WP_DEBUG', false );


define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);
define( 'WP_DEBUG', true);

-Go back to your menu page and click on the arrows.
-After that open your debug.log file in the wp-content folder and check for errors and try to fix them.
