While WordPress might be the web leader for blogs, business, and affiliate marketing; there are many developers and users who still prefer Drupal for their CMS. I am completely biased to WordPress after working for some dozen clients with Drupal. No matter how beautiful Drupal themes might be (like Porto), the framework itself is no match for WordPress.

Drupal has serious issues with continues framework update which removes support for many drupal plugins now and then – that is also WITHOUT NOTIFYING!

Performing such updates sometimes is like biting the bullet in Drupal. Your old function or structure may completely vanish. Plugins may go out of support and what not. I encountered below error after an update related to Drupal content types.

You have not created any content types yet. Go to the content type creation page to add new content type.

Pretty scary stuff if you have tons of post, store pages and content. Isn’t it?

Drupal content types

I could see all website articles after clicking ‘Find Content’ so, there was some bug or update issue. The issue of missing things and prompt is simple and there is only one in most of the cases -> Disabled items in Navigation config of Drupal.

Let’s fix missing Drupal Content Type

Login to your Drupal administrator panel and click on ‘Structure’.

From the list of structures, select ‘Menus’

You will see the Navigation subsection for the Menus.

Click on ‘List Links’.
