Control Panel is missing SITE INFORMATION

Post by joensen » Wed Aug 08, 2018 9:47 am

Hi,

I have some Joomla pages running, but only one of my pages shows "SITE INFORMATION" in the Control Panel.

Does anyone know how this information can be turned on and off?

It's a module you can add to the "administrator" section of your website. I believe it's called "statistics".
Go to Extensions -> Modules, choose "Administrator" in the dropdown, find the module and assign it to a position (probably "cPanel").
The fact that an opinion is widely held is no evidence whatsoever that it is not utterly absurd.

Thank you Jaydot,

I can see that this module is available on this one page, but it is not available on other pages.
Where can you download this module?

You don't have to download it, it is a part of core Joomla.
You can find it by going to Extensions -> Modules, make sure the modules for "Administrator" (not "Site") are showing, and then search for it.
By "pages" I assume you mean "websites"?

Thanks again for your reply, but this module is not available on the other websites.
I also see that the "Release News" module is also not available?
I have tried to install "Joomla_3.8.11-Stable-Full_Package" but it does not help.

That is weird...
Could it be that someone else originally built the site and perhaps removed these modules?
Then they might be found in "Discover": go to Extensions -> Manage -> Discover.
If they are not there, what I would try (make a backup with Akeeba first), is go to Components -> Joomla updates, click on "Check for Updates" (even though you have the latest update installed) and then click "Reinstall Joomla Core Files".
If that doesn't work, I hope someone else will join this topic and help out.

Thanks!
All of your suggestions I have already tried, nothing helps.
No - these are websites that I have made, and upgraded since then Joomla 1.5 was in use, and today, every website runs with Joomla 3.8.11

Oh dear...
I do know sometimes weird stuff creeps into very old sites, even if they have been carefully maintained over the years.
I'm out of ideas, sorry!
If someone else jumps in, they will probably ask you to run the FPA report first (see "Forum Post Assistant" in the pink section above this topic)...

This Site Information (statistics module in "modules-->administrator" is ONLY published to the cpanel position of the administrator template in the Isis template. You cannot add this to any other page

If the module is not available for a certain site you do the following../administrator/index.php?option=com_modules&view=select (copy that after administrator/index.php) and select New-->Statistics and install. Than go to the plugin (modules-->administrator>Stats_ and publish the module to the cpanel position

Thank you Leo!

It was the ones I needed :geek: after I followed your guidance, I've got both "SITE INFORMATION" and "Release News" on all my websites. :)
