Created menu links go directly to trash

Post by Mickael62 » Mon Sep 18, 2023 2:30 pm


When I create a new link or modify an existing menu link, it is directly created in the trash, and it is impossible to change its status to published.

This happens both via T4 PageBuilder and via the link manager! As a result, I'm completely stuck!

Help Thanks

[ Joomla v4.3.4 - T4 PageBuilder v2.0.7 ]

Existing menu items are already published - how were they created, without the issue you report occurring? Did this happen in a previous version of the T4 page builder?

Can you reinstall the T4 framework, and the pagebuilder extension (just reinstall over the top, not uninstall then reinstall)?

Does it happen when making a normal menu item from a Joomla Article? Is this a new install of J4.3.4 or a migration from 3.10.x?

Maybe do a test - install a clean vanilla J4.3.4 install, do menu items end up in Trash creating normal single article menu items? Then install T4 Page builder and T4 framework plugin on that plain vanilla test copy. Does the reported issue recur, with pages created with the Page Builder and/or with Joomla articles?

Have you asked this on the JoomlArt forum? I assume they provide support for their products.

Several questions have been posted on this forum about similar problems: new menu items are immediately trashed. See ... for other questions about this matter.
