Created 2 languages in Publisher.
Created a NavEE navigation with one node in it.

Navigation item does not show additional set of fields added to the bottom of NavEE’s navigation node as demonstrated in your docs image:

Can you check your exp_extensions table to make sure there are 8 rows in there with “Publisher_navee_ext” in the class column. You should see rows for each of these:

['hook'=>'core_boot', 'method'=>'core_boot'],
            ['hook'=>'navee_extra_form_sections', 'method'=>'navee_extra_form_sections'],
            ['hook'=>'navee_update_navigation_item', 'method'=>'navee_update_navigation_item'],
            ['hook'=>'navee_modify_nav', 'method'=>'navee_modify_nav'],
            ['hook'=>'navee_get_cache', 'method'=>'navee_get_cache'],
            ['hook'=>'navee_set_cache', 'method'=>'navee_set_cache'],
            ['hook'=>'navee_strip_link', 'method'=>'navee_strip_link'],
            ['hook'=>'navee_modify_crumb', 'method'=>'navee_modify_crumb']

This is a little puzzling because I haven’t had to update the NavEE support extension for nearly 2 years, and I know other people are using it.

Yes all 8 rows with “Publisher_navee_ext” in the class column are present!
i have experienced this bug on a live site first but i have reproduced this bug in a fresh install of ExpressionEngine 3.5.3 (screenshots are in this ticket)
PHP is 7.3.10

Sorry for the delay on this. It isn’t working b/c I don’t think the NavEE developer has added the updates I sent him… 2 years ago. There are missing hook calls in the NavEE codebase, until those are added the Publisher - NavEE Support extension will never work :(

You should reach out to their support. I gave them access to my Github repo that contains the changes they need to make. You won’t be able to see these files, but Michael Witwicki should.
