sub menu not displaying when positioned in menu. Position in sidebar and sub menu displays ok

Post by whstone » Tue Jun 11, 2024 4:26 am

I put 2 menus on home page to test, positioned in left side bar all ok, position in menu and sub menus will not display. tried separator and menu header, same results. Using Cassiopeia default template. was expecting a drop down menu. as a separator or menu header, it is not selectable. when positioned in sidebar, menu item as separator or menu header is not selectable, but sub menu items are displayed and selectable. Not sure if it is me or a bug?

How did you install joomla 5 on a server that does not support J5?

Needed to upgrade off 3.10. (still running ). Not something I do everyday. Wanted to go to latest release possible.
Only using minimum features from joomla. Simple web page. Tried it, seems to be working ok.

Softaculous doesn't enjoy a good reputation for live sites, there are a lot of people posting they have problems with softaculous installs and you will not get much support here!!! You will not be able to update your site as it is now. You would be better off using J4 which the server supports but install it properly not via softaculous.

I also have a joomla 4.4.5 test system. It is failing the same way on that system, or not performing the way I am expecting. That system(4) I installed it using the joomla install package. I was having no success with trying to upgrade my 3.10 system. So decided to go with clean install and bring along what data I needed from old system users, articles.
Needed to rebuild menu.
So far I cannot place the menu where i want it at either level.

Did you select Collapsible dropdown from the Cassiopeia Template?

As @gws identified, FPA says database doesn't support Joomla 5.1.1 (FPA reports MySQL 5.7 not 8.x).....but you still have a somewhat working site? (I'm surprised by that).

reply to ceford, you are getting me much closer. On the 5.1 system I only have module choices. no Cassiopeia template options. My 4.4.5 system is now working, as it offers me choices from module & Cassiopeia template. Cassiopeia template is where the Collapsible dropdown option lives. Is there something I am missing that stops the Cassiopeia options appearing in the layout options for the 5.1 system.

Go to System / Site Templates / Cassiopeia Details and Files / html

Do you see mod_menu? It should contain the metismenu layout. You might try to Reinstall Joomla! Core files.

Thank you, this is now resolved. I did not have several of the files you mentioned in the html file. I may have done this to myself. In playing around with Cassiopeia, I remember adding mod_menu and then deleting it. Sometimes a little knowledge can be dangerous. Thanks again. This problem can be marked resolved.
