On a new install of Joomla 3.6.2 with a purchased template there is a menu option in the Adminitrator labeled "Ajax Interface" under Components which I've never seen before.

If I select it the following error message appears:

InvalidArgumentException: Please specify a valid response format, other than that of HTML, such as json, raw, debug, etc.

How can this be corrected as the site is working properly otherwise?


This menu item shouldn't appear in your Joomla backend (3.6.2), no idea why it's appearing for you. Having said that, the Ajax Interface is a core Joomla extension that is responsible for simplifying Ajax implementation in Joomla. You can read more about it here.
