Menu items for registered users are public visible after update to 3.7.3

Postby HaBee » Mon Jul 10, 2017 1:29 pm

Menu modules that are set to registered groups all show up to public visitors. Articles with access rights are not shown.
We have noticed this after updating to 3.7.3.
Joomla is working on a server that is using PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.21 could that be the cause?
Any ideas how to solve this?

Thanks,
Henk

Your PHP is very much out of date, but I don't think that's the direct cause of the problem but..... can you try upgrading PHP 5.6.x or even better 7.x and see if you have the same trouble?

Can you not reset the modules to the correct permissions (or is this a lot of work involved in doing so)?

I haven't encountered such issues (but then, am using PHP 7.x) and my host doesn't have PHP that old on their systems.

Thank you for your reply.

An update of PHP is planned. Hopefully it will solve the problem.

I have tried to reset the permissions of the menu modules also tried to create new module. This does not solve the problem.
