Missing dashboard contents

4 months 3 weeks ago - 4 months 3 weeks ago #47188 by Adam Yared
Hi, i've just upgrade an instance of jomres and migrated it to a new server - lots of learnings.. Got everything working now but the dashboard menu isnt getting populated with drop down items and i cant turn it off for non-logged in users. Installed access control plugin but it's not saving any changes (ajax call is return success but no change).

looks like this in the old site:

this is what im seeing in the upgraded site:

It doesn't like the required files are in the new /jomres/core-minicomponents folder - is there a plugin i need to install for this menu?

upgraded from:

php: 5.6.37
joomla: 3.6.5 Stable
jomres: 9.8.16


php: 7.0.32
joomla: 3.8.13
jomres: 9.13

Try emptying your /jomres/temp directory, does that help?

Also, make sure you haven't run out of disk space while updating, a general rule of thumb would be to ensure that you have about 300mb spare during the update process to allow for download, unzipping of the Core and moving of files.

Hi Vince,

thanks for the quick reply! I've seen your name in so many comment blocks trying to track this down.. great to get your input.

I cleared the /jomres/temp folder and no change. I can replicate this on my local machine and that is defintiely not short of space so thats probably no it either.

To confirm, there are 2 issues. The dashboard menu isnt getting populated when i log in and i cant hide it when i log out.

Thanks again.

Please raise a support ticket with the server's login & ftp details and I'll look into it for you, Adam.

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
