By updating CA I probably over wrote the changes you made the other day for the resize of the Question and description field in the 2nd area for Asking a question. If I can get the change information you made I can update it myself. Otherwise I can send you the ftp info again. Knowing how and where to make the change I wont have to ask you as I can probably manage it myself.
I will do some more research to find a solution. The installation I have also has problems with the administrator menus for Jomsocial and the Configuration Administration for Joomla, so it must be something to do with the initial installation or something.
One issue I noticed before was, if you install JomSocial after CA, JomSocial will trash all CA menu items. Sound scary but that is true, I asked JomSocial guys to correct the issue but they did not care about it.
Anyway this issue seems to be the language entries problem. Try to copy entries from com_communityanswers.sys.ini file to administrator/language/en-GB/en-GB.menu.ini file. (I did not tested it but should work)
If you use our extensions, please post a rating and a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory (direct links are given below).
Tnx for the reply. Unfortunately even deleting the component completely doesn't allow the deletion of the admin menus so what I did was after uninstalling, I deleted the menus manually in DB and then reinstalled. Fixed the problem. Tnx again!
The administrator has disabled public write access.
Re: Error building Admin Menus
1 year 8 months ago #6878
I installed Community Answers 1.7.1 and now I have two menus for CA. I am not familiar enough with deleting menus using phpMyAdmin in CPanel so how can I remove the extra menu? I looked at the database but I am not sure what to delete.
I removed the CA component as suggested by Maverick and then installed CA 1.7.1 again and I still have two CA menus in the Components menu.
3. Determine what database name and database prefix to work on.
- Go to Administrator > Global Configuration > Server, then list down the database name (name1_name2) and database table prefix (name1_name3) being used.
4. Log in to your phpMyAdmin then click on the name of the database name you listed on step 3 (name1_name2). You should be able to see the prefix (name3) on most of the table listing you find there.
5. Browse through the table names and look for the menu table (name3_menu). Click on it.
6. Show all menus. This step could be skipped if you're comfortable with moving from one page to another in looking for the menu you are about to delete. You can do this by changing the option at the bottom to something like this:
Show: 1000 row(s) starting from row # 0 in horizontal mode and repeat headers after 100 cells, then press enter key.
7. Look for community answers' menus by looking at the 'path' column for something with 'communityanswers':
8. Just delete only one entry, then open a new window and login to your admin account and see if the menu is completely gone on the admin side of website. If this is the case, start deleting those entries with the 'communityanswers' carefully. Be sure you only delete those entries with 'communityanswers'.
9. If you don't see the menus anymore on your backend menus, reinstall community answers. This should bring it back to normal.
10. Just in case the above fails, most probably you did something wrong with the steps. Do a restore of your site to bring it back to where it was before and try again.
