    topmenu - mainmenu

    After installing the latest package, I am having problems seeing the main menu. It exists in the database, no entries are listed in the admin site of Joomla when viewing the Main Menu (or any menu infact) in menu manager.

    When looking in the Module Manager at Main Menu (mod_mainmenu) it is not visible when Menu Style is set to the default "List" option, if I change it to any of the Legacy options it is visible but of course not in the same style as on the demo site.

    I hope this is just a mistake on my part and someone can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks!

    If this is a fresh install, I would go for a reinstall just for simplicitys sake. From your description it sounds like a bigger issue than just a fluffed up setting somewhere.

    I had the same problem, it's because you are probably using the latest version of xampp, you need to reinstall everything using the older version of xampp.

    Hi all,
    long time listener, first time caller...

    i realise this is an old thread, but my google'ing keeps leading me here, so im posting an answer for future generations

    for those that have a disappeared topmenu, you need to downgrade php to an earlier version.

    heres the problem...

    Joomla! • View topic - v1.5.14 menu items not appearing

    heres an .sh script to auto download, install, and restart services (original credits in tact).

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash

    # OK, here's how to do the Apt magic to get PHP packages from the karmic repositories:
     
    
    echo "Am I root?  "
    if [ "$(whoami &2>/dev/null)" != "root" ] && [ "$(id -un &2>/dev/null)" != "root" ] ; then
    echo "  NO! 
    Error: You must be root to run this script.
    Enter
    sudo su
    "
    
    exit 1
    fi
    echo "  OK"; 
    
    # finish all apt-problems:
    apt-get -f install 
    
    # remove all your existing PHP packages. You can list them with dpkg -l| grep php
    
    PHPLIST=$(for i in $(dpkg -l | grep php|awk '{ print $2 }' ); do echo $i; done)
    
    echo these pachets will be removed: $PHPLIST
    
    # you need not to purge, if you have upgraded from karmic:
    apt-get remove $PHPLIST
    
    # on a fresh install, you need purge:
    # aptitude remove --purge $PHPLIST 
    
    #Create a file each in /etc/apt/preferences.d like this (call it for example /etc/apt/preferences.d/php5.2);
    #
    #Package: php5
    #Pin: release a=karmic
    #Pin-Priority: 991
    #
    #The big problem is that wildcards don't work, so you will need one such stanza for each PHP package you want to pull from karmic:
    
    echo ''>/etc/apt/preferences.d/php5.2
    for i in $PHPLIST ; do echo "Package: $i
    Pin: release a=karmic
    Pin-Priority: 991
    ">>/etc/apt/preferences.d/php5.2; done 
    
    # duplicate your existing sources.list replacing lucid with karmic and save it in sources.list.d:
    #sed s/lucid/karmic/g /etc/apt/sources.list | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/karmic.list
    # better exactly only the needed sources, cause otherwise you can get a cachsize problem:
    
    echo "# needed sources vor php5.2:
    deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic main restricted
    deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic main restricted

    apache2ctl restart 
    
    echo install new from karmic:

    I had the same problem and after receiving a walk through from Steve Hill I think my reply in this thread should give you the answer.

    Spoke too soon - accessing site today, menus had disappeared again! So ran levell3r's script again, and menus re-appeared. How do I get it to stick?
