I Broke Admin Site

Post by SPDJoomla4 » Wed Aug 10, 2022 5:48 am

Thankfully not too badly. I have a test site where I made some changes to the Languages > en_GB > Joomla.ini file.

Thought I would just copy that file over to live site, where changes worked a treat, but for some reason the button in admin all have these JTOOL... labels

I'm thinking I messed up in the copy process somehow as I did do it multiple time when I saw the issue in live admin. Hoping someone might be able to point me in right direction.
Cheers

Don't edit Core files. Do a proper language override.

Lesson learned, point taken, but any idea of how to fix what I broke or even what is broken?
Thanks

Enable Language Debug in Global Configuration.

See what language files are loaded and if they any syntax errors.
