Are you making sure to click on the save icon after you set up the ordering you want?

Do you have caching enabled? And have you also cleared your browser cache?

I'm going to as that this be moved to the 1.6 bug forum. It's not really a performance issue.

When you post again please post your complete environment information and also some screen shots of what you are doing step by step.

Ok so you have an ordering, are you saying that when you look at the front end the menu items are not displayed in that order?

I had a similar problem, but it relates to the menu headings, ie "About Joomla!", "This Site", etc on the installation database using beez_20. The ordering I did was in Module Manager: Module, where the ordering arrows (a) don't appear until you click the column heading, and (b) don't function properly.

The order integer is the same for several modules and the order you get in this case appears to be that of the order of records in the jos_modules table. You can fix the ordering in this table.

Hope this helps,

Mike

I'm confused because you are saying the problem is in menus but then you said your did stuff in the module manager? Or are you trying to change the order of those menu modules?
You definitely can't use the order arrows if you have not initially clicked on the heading to put things in order.

Hi Mscmom,

The original post in this thread was about menu ordering, while mine (as you say) is about module ordering.

Your video shows exactly what I did. The difference seems to be that somewhere along the way in developing my database the integers in my ordering column have got corrupted and several of them are set to 1. Yours are in sequence as they should be. See attached screen shot.

The work I did was entirely using the admin panels as shown in your video.

And then if you change the numbers in the boxes and save, what happens?
What steps did you use to create new modules? Did you copy an existing one or use the New icon?

I changed one of the "1"s to a 2 and saved. The whole list re-ordered automatically to 1, 3, 4, 5, 6.
Note: no 0 or 2. The arrows then worked as they should and the modules were correctly displayed on the front end.

The modules were created using "new".

It works in exactly the same way and you need to answer all of the questions above.

update

Mike is the concern now that you are missing the two integers? What happens if you save again?

With menu items manager you have no "position" link. I'm locked into the database but there are maybe 200 items in jos_menu ...

Re my problem with the main menu module positions all getting set to 1. It could be that I edited the positions manually at some stage in didn't hit the floppy disk icon.

Would a safer implementation be to update the database whenever the ordering was changes without the need to click the save icon.

Mike,

I know it seems like a pain to have to hit save but think about it, do you want the front end of your site chnging while you are moving one item at a time and rearranging or do you want to finish the job and then have the front end change? It's not that different than having to save your article before it is in the database. Do you want your article editing to display to your users as you are typing? Or to you want to be able to finish, proof read, then save and let them see the changes?

The problem with MENU ITEM ORDERING was caused by this 3rd party extension
http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... I7fQ%3D%3D

Reported and resolved with installing another 3rd party menu extension.

I found a way. Open phpmyadmin>j16menu
find mainmenu table
edit value of ordering to '0'
then try to change menu ordering in administrator backend.

This was the solution that worked! Good work, meerarajeev :)

Can anyone explain why this works? We had a heck of a time trying to order menu items on a site currently being developed - the blue up/down arrow buttons seemed to work, but as soon as you save the ordering would revert.

The number boxes never even worked at all.

This particular site was a migration from 1.5 -> 1.6/1.7, but I've observed the exact same menu ordering problem on a completely fresh 1.7 install.

Infograf is on the problem! It is a problem with the column "ordering" in table "_menu". When it is filled with different numbers it doesn't work - it should be just zero's as the ordering of the menu items are drawn from the columns "lgt" and "rgt". It seems that the ordering column actually is obsolete, but if you press "Rebuild" it is used

// If the table has an ordering field, use that for ordering.
if (property_exists($this, 'ordering')) {
$query->order('parent_id, ordering, lft');

infograf768: when the ordering column is filled with figures, then it usesit


Use this in phpMyAdmin to correct the issue: UPDATE `your db name`.`your table prefix_menu` SET `ordering` = '0'
