Contact Component Missing in Menu

Post by DaveOzric » Fri Jul 21, 2017 1:56 pm

I just noticed on one of my site that in the admin area the contact component is missing in the menu. Components > Contacts is gone.

Looking in the Extensions > Manage I see it enabled but the folder is N/A which is odd.

The menu item and contact form is working and both folders are on the sever.
administrator/components/com_contact
components/com_contact

Any ideas how to restore this? I need to have this back.

Thanks

Did you use discover button? Do you have the files in your root folder from com_contact(components and administrator)?

Hi sozzled, indeed it was one of these. The menutype in the database had been changed to menu and I changed it back to main. There were actually a few things like this. Odd, must of been an update to the core.

All of my core menu items are set to 0 for published and work.

Thanks for your help.
