I have set up a bunch of regular pages in my new wp.com site and am primarily using a custom menu for navigation. I had no problem setting up the menu but today something went wrong. I design a new page and as usual added it to the menu. On selecting 'Save Menu", my browser (IE8 in compatibility mode to prevent the annoying "skip to top" problem during image insertion) keeped loading for a long time (>5 mins) and then timed out. Saving the menu has always been a bit sluggish but never that bad. When I reloaded the menu page all but the top ~20 or so menu entries had disappeared. The menu original had maybe 50 or so entries (main and sub-menus). When I try to re-create the menu I keep getting the same time-out issues if I add several new items. Occassional I can add one or two items and get through a successful save.
Any ideas or recommendations to fix this?
