Bug in "edit menu"?

Hi,

I noticed that when I press "edit menu" from the very entry of a menu (popup type) on the side panel, the menu editor comes up, but all entries are displayed as "contracted branch", even if some or all of them are supposed to be page links. I have to use the full structure -> manage menus -> choose etc. path to see the menu with its correct entries.

Is this some some kind of bug?

Have a nice one,
Peter

Some menu types make no distinction between page-link/contracted-branch, such as popup ones (because a popup point can also itself be a link). Other ones, such as tree ones, can not have children if a page-link is defined (because the click event is used to open up a tray).

The menus themselves aren't saved against how the data is to be used, but for usability reasons ocPortal will adapt the menu interface a bit depending on the context you're editing for.

Chris,

I've read through the available documentation on menus - again - and am even more aware of the various menu types and their behaviour now.

Still, I don't quite get it why the very same menu should be displayed as "contracted branches" all over when the editor is called from the page itself where the menu resides and OTOH with the correct configuration of branches and pagelinks when called from the menu manager. Maybe the (sorry, German) screenshots help.

The editor interface itself is identical and the editor url is

Code

/adminzone/index.php?page=admin_menus&type=edit&id=main_menu1
both times. When the editor is invoked from the page though, a lengthy &redirect… is added.

Have a nice one,
Peter

I think you'll see actually one of the URLs has clickable_sections=1 in it.
The actual dropdown value you're concerned about isn't saved anywhere, it's just a part of the UI intended for visualisation.
