    Gave this a try – I’m using Custom Post Types UI with Design Chemical Mega Menu in WP 3.2.1 – the CPT’s do get displayed, but:
    -some images do not display on welcome page
    -menu disappears/goes blank
    -all CPTs get included in recent posts
    Any thoughts on how to make this work…?
    Thanks in advance

    • Add this as an additional post type –  ‘nav_menu_item’
