if you are using the Hathor backend template you should switch to the Isis template as your administrative template. The Hathor template is being deprecated and may not provide you with the ability to use all the latest features in Joomla! 3.7

@ribo: no-one recommends Hathor (except for you, perhaps). Hathor is broken; Hathor is not accessible for blind/vision-impaired users; Hathor is dead. If it works for you then use it ... but no-one else uses it or recommends it for users of J! 3.x. You're on your own if you use Hathor.

If you need to understand more, please do your own research.

Please do not say that Hathor "works" when it does *not* work. I am not going to do your research for you. Please do your own research and then start a new topic that shows the results of that research. OK?

This is not the place to debate the matter.

Ι am not debate with you. You try to cancel what i answered here. If you said that you saw errors in hathor template prove it. And also i didnt recommended hathor. Here is my answer that i didnt recommended hathor viewtopic.php?f=710&t=793171&start=270#p3590779 which you misinterpreted here viewtopic.php?f=710&t=793171&start=300#p3590820.

I assume Hathor doesn't work with v3.x?
It works too, just the most of us are use Isis.
Maybe works but looks a mess

OK, so I'm an idiot...I had the Hathor admin template associated with me as an admin...changed to Isis and all now looks fine!

May be late to the party but.....just want to point out that while the conversation was about *Hathor*, the problem from @nigelj was BlueStork for some reason still defaulted as the admin template after his migration. The screenshots provided by @nigelj are from BlueStork admin template not Hathor and yes, BlueStork definitely won't work in J3.
