Afterupdate 4.2.2 duplicate buttons

Post by pvh123 » Tue Sep 27, 2022 9:37 am

After updating to version 4.2.2, I get duplicate buttons at the top of the backend page.

I'm not seeing such a problem (illustrated, my site below).

Do the buttons go away if go into the Post Install Messages screen and read/hide those messages? (Those buttons shouldn't remain there permanently if you have read/hidden the messages. See if that works; read / hide all 11 messages as your site indicates; then unhide them again, does it come back with the duplicate buttons?

Curious, my site differs from your example by the the left button on my site being the direct link to the front-end live site URL, then the Post Install Message button then the User menu for the Administrator.

Did the problem occur with previous J4.x versions?

Fantastic Amurray. Hide and reset the Post installation messages and the button was gone.
But I still have two Site name and "User menu" buttons (?????).

This is easy! I can do this too (and I can jumble the order of these "buttons"):

Wanna see how?

First of all, for some strange reason, some rows in one of the database tables have been duplicated (that's what caused the problem in the first place). To simulate the issue, I went to the Modules (Adminstrator) panel and created a duplicate of the Post-Installation Messages module and assigned it to the status template position.

If you look at the following screenshot, you will see (a) the duplicated item and (b) I've simply re-ordered the items which explains why @AMurray has the "button" for the frontend in front of the "button" for the post installation messages.

Neat trick, huh? ;)

Thanks sozzled.
So what you are saying by being able to move things around, I should also be able to delete one of the duplicated items in Modules (Administrator) panel to solve the problem?

What I'm saying is that you have duplicated items. Delete/trash the duplicates using the Module Manager.

Optionally, you can move things around, too, if that's what you want.
