Joomla menu items reordering themselves

Post by genesis-jones » Fri Jul 03, 2020 3:59 pm

I have 66 menus containing links to 1189 different articles distributed throughout the 66 menus.
Menu 1>>34 article links, all sequential
Menu 2>>12 article links, all sequential
Menu 3>> 66 article links, all sequential ..... and so on for 66 menus, linking 1189 articles.

Problem is, Joomla appears to keep reordering my menu item order regardless of what I do. I checked if it was template by using Protostar. Same problem. I disabled JumpMenu module by Joomlatema. Reordered menus again. Problem still exists. I have tried drag and drop reordering. I have tried using the Ordering function for each menu item. Nothing appears to work. Issue is, all menu items MUST stay in the order I put them as they are sequential.

Using Joomla 3.9.19, all plugins are up to date, using favorite template on bootstrap 4 framework. I don't know what else to check to resolve.

Any input would be appreciated. As I said, Menu Items must stay in the sequential order I put them in.

As an afterthought, the only other plugin that might be causing issues would be Mobile Joomla but I don't know how.

Thank you.

Are the menu items type Article or another menu item type?
Is it the menu items that are moving position in the menu?
