    I’m experiencing an issue where child pages are intermittently disappearing.

    Sometimes the initial page listing loads and only shows the parent page.

    Sometimes all the correct pages load, but then reverts to just the parent page after using the page pagination, search, or some sorting/filtering action.

    Sometimes clicking to edit an available page and back to the page listing temporarily fixes it.

    Sometimes clicking to another admin menu and back to the page listing temporarily fixes it.

    I’ve done all the standard troubleshooting and have confirmed that it’s not a plugin or them conflict. I’ve tested a very simple setup with a single parent page ID. I haven’t noticed the issue with any custom post type, just page access.

    Did some additional testing with a very basic single role setup with no IDs and also with a single ID.

    As long as there are no IDs to restrict what pages a user role has access to, the user can see all pages and there are no issues with pages disappearing and no longer being visible as they sort, filter, or paginate through them.

    As soon as even a single ID is added to what pages a user can access, the results are hit and miss. The page and all its children and grandchildren may display and then after a period of time, the available pages are reduced down to just the parent IDs.

    My setup has been the same since 2016 and I only started receiving reports of this issue occurring beginning around February 7, 2024. Since then, I’ve been unable to figure out what changed that is now causing my setup to no longer work.

    It’s always been very basic setup of department roles (holds all the IDs and is set to allow) + functionality roles (forms, pages, posts, etc… all set to allow) and it’s always worked until recently.
