Menu Problems after installing languages

Post by Katarina03 » Thu Apr 04, 2019 10:29 pm

I have successfully installed my language switcher and have my appropriate "Main" menus appearing at the top using menu modules for both English and Spanish. Now, however, no main menu appears any time I create a new menu item. I even tried saving a copy of a current menu item. The original has the "English Menu" module at the top (i.e. Home, About us, etc.), however, the copy, after making zero changes, does not have any menu at the top.

What am I doing wrong?

I would suggest checking the following:
- Whether the menu item is Published
- Whether the menu item is assigned to the appropriate language
- Whether the menu item is in the appropriate menu

What is your site's URL?

Is there still a menu item that is not showing in the appropriate menu? If so, to which menu it has been added?

www.valleyefchurch.com check out the "asst. past. search tab". Yes to all of the above. The menu itself disappears.

Reviewed the site and it looks like the menu module may not have been assigned to the appropriate/new menu items.

I would suggest checking in the menu module, especially in the tab "Menu Assignment" (https://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_assi ... c_pages%3F).

That was my first thought. I've checked the menu module over and over. I've checked the menu assignment, and it is definitely assigned, nut it doesn't show up.

I do not mind looking at the site. What I would suggest is to create a backup of the site using the extension Akeeba Backup and copy it to a place where I can download it from. I will download the file and create a local copy for reviewing.
