I have a menu item "First Level" (it is a single article) and it has a child menu item "Second Level". This "Second Level" menu item is a category blog.

If I navigate to this blog both menu items are marked as active. But if I want to "read more" from one of this blog items, the menu wont show any active item.

I see a problem in the linking. Clicking the menu items leading to following urls: "/first-level/second-level/" (the alias of the menu items). But the blog items are linked as follows: "/second_level_section/blog-item-example" Notice: first level disappear, the underlines in the second level alias and of course the "section" string in it....

I do not understand how/where this link is created. Can anybody give me a tip to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance Doc

  • Do you have any SEF component installed? Also do you mind sharing a link to the website? It will be easier to suggest something, if we see it exactly as it happens.

Do you have any other menu item that link to the same content?

Probably you have another menu item for that category, with the alias "second_level_section" and that menu item is being used when you are accessing articles of this category.

It's also possible that you have this menu item in a hidden menu (not visible with a menu module in front-end).

  • Great. That simple. I have a hidden menu I've created long time ago and I've just forgot that it exists ;) and in this menu is a menu-item called "second_level_section". Great, very great. Thanks a lot Max.
