How to re-build news portal menu items

Written by Merav Knafo on . Posted in iJoomla Extensions. 3,980 views

Sometimes, after upgrading iJoomla News Portal, the News menu links stop working. If that happens, you need to re-build those links. Our own Ricardo Corai has created this video with funky music and the instructions below. iJoomla News Portal creates 3 menu in your Joomla! site: News Portal Content, News Portal Categories and News Portal Sections. In order to rebuild the menu items included in these menus, follow these steps:
  1. Delete all the menu items included in News Portal Content menu
    1. Menus->News Portal Content
    2. Check all menu items
    3. Delete
  2. Delete all the menu items included in News Portal Categorie menu
    1. Menus->News Portal Content
    2. Check all menu items
    3. Delete
  3. Delete all the menu items included in News Portal Sections menu
    1. Menus->News Portal Content
    2. Check all menu items
    3. Delete
  4. Delete the items from the menu trash too ( important).
    1. Menu-> Menu trash
    2. Check all menu items
    3. Delete
  5. Now you need to save each of the content managers on news portal to rebuild the menu items
    1. Go to iJoomla News Portal -> Managers Content.
    2. Click on Sections to access the sections manager, click SAVE
    3. Click on Categories to access the sections manager, click SAVE
    4. Click on Content Items to access the sections manager, click SAVE
    Easy eh?

    Hi Merav,
    I have a question regarding news portal, does it come with a template and how big a job is it to rebuild a whole site if we changed to it?

    Is their any way of downloading a demo version to experiment with.

    Regards

    Charles

      Charles, it doesn’t come with a template because it works with any template :-). The cool thing about it is that you don’t have to re-build anything, because it uses the core joomla articles. So you will have a page for articles from all sections/categories and also a page for each section/category.
