Using 3.04 and Atahualpa 3.5.3 http://fishingnet.com/wordpress/about/

All going nicely till I tried to add more items to a second menu. Could be I just made it too big. Tried to delete single items got a 500 - Premature end of script headers: nav-menus.php

It then appeared corrupted (dropdowns still there, but 5 lines of menu items appeared behind this).

Tried to delete the entire menu and got a 500 - Premature end of script headers: nav-menus.php

Have worked around it by putting up a blank third menu and removing the second one for the mo, but still cannot delete the second one one or add anything new to the 3rd one. same error msg.

It is the category menu I am having problems with. Sorry I called this menu 2 - items added via the WP interface. Its this "menu 2" that appears corrupted. Using the javascript.

So let me see if I have it right.
You go to dashboard->appearances->menus and create a menu 'my-menu'
on the same page, under 'Theme Locations' you use 'my-menu' in the 'Menu 2' slot
At ATO->Style & edit HEADER AREA->Configure Header Area you are using %cats

so how many items do you have in 'my-menu'?
are you adding pages and Categories, external links?
What does it look like (example
page-1
cat-1
cat-1a
external-1
cat-b
page-2
page-2a

I think the answer is yes to all of the above.

I had all English counties under regional parents, all scottish counties, all fish species plus a few more .. perhaps 100+

I don't think this should have been a problem.. a bunch of javascript.

On reflection I did a couple of stupid things:

I merged 2 categories "Salmon" and "salmon" .. all seemed ok.

I then tried to rename the root "wordpress" file to "angling" thinking this would be better for SEO long term.

It did not work, so I rolled back by editing the DB.

All seemed ok... except I could not edit or delete menus.

Then I got in touch.

Subsequently I changed the default category from "England" to "New"

That has allowed me to delete the category menu.

But its Still There!!

I need help. First time I strayed from the defaults and I messed up. Can you help. Happy to Pay!!

just what 'file' are you talking about? the wordpress folder?

Do you mean that you renamed the category 'uncategorized' to England, then changed it to 'New'? My suggestion is to leave the uncategorized category alone.

Create a new category you want as your 'default' say you call it 'New'. Now go to dashboard->settings->writting and set the 'Default Post Category' option to your category 'New'

It sounds like you may have a messed up site. Do you have a database backup from BEFORE you started making these changes?

How many posts in your site?
How long has it been active?

???

I think I would create 'testbed' - ie a new database and an new install of wordpress (copying the entire wp-contents folder to the new install. Currently you have a folder that fishingnet.com points to. In that folder is a folder called 'wordpress'. All you do is create an different folder called 'testbed' and then manually install the wordpress code (all the files and folders that are in the 'wordpress' folder) into the 'testbed' folder.

You will have to change the wp-config.php to point at the new database (call it 'testbed' when you create it to keep things simple) and then import your backup into the testbed db.

Now you will be ale to get to this by using 'fishingnet.com/testbed' and you have a place to test changes without making more of a mess of your 'live' site
