Second admin menu appeared after Joomla upgraded to 3.9.4

Post by Windwood » Mon Mar 18, 2019 12:05 am

Here it is March of 2019 and this problem obviously still persists. I've searched multiple times with miltiple search platforms and found nothing that works. Some of the replies I have read make absolutely no sense at all and others just don't work. Has anyone found a solution to this phenomena? Problem occured after updating to Joomla 3.9.4.

Thank you for your reply. Basically, none. I have found nothing in my searches that was either comprehensible or applied to me. I did try the switching of templates and deleting of the admin menu, but neither made any difference.

Let's think about this logically.

A menu in Joomla appears on a web page because there is (usually) a module created for it and assigned to the pages where you want it to appear. The pages on the Administration website are no different to any other web pages. The main menu on the /administrator pages are there because there is a module.

The problem for most novice users is that they don't know where to look for modules on the Administration website.

When you login to the /administrator site, go to Extensions » Modules and the use the filter to look at "Administrator" modules (not "Site" modules). Chances are that you have created a second menu module and assigned it to your Administrator pages. For more information, see https://docs.joomla.org/Help39:Extensio ... st_Filters

So, I had looked at Admin modules yesterday and ignored the culprit. I had installed Seblod to have a look and see if I might be interested in it's capabilities. It had installed an administrator menu module, in fact, it pretty much took over the admin side of the site. I have uninstalled and deleted all traces of it. After deleting the Seblod admin module, I am now back to normal. Thank you for your input.
