After the joomla update the menu item seems to be broken. In every url I see


rather than


However, I resolved the issue by clicking the Rebuild button on menu manager. After which, every menu item works correctly. But now my problem is that when I create new menu item, it gives the same error of adding clients to the url. Then again I have to rebuild and it works.

For example, if a menu item alias is user-profile then Joomla system stores the alias correctly in database but the path is stored as Clients/user-profile

Is there any way by which the menu url can be fixed for the new items as well?

Joomla Version: 3.6.4

  • Hi, ¿Have the new menu as parent a "client" menu? Nov 17, 2016 at 10:41
  • no Clients is not any menu item. Don't know from where it is coming. I updated the question with the example.

I had the same issue with the menu then I found this.


It was helpful but not the solution.

Then I checked my #__menu table and there I found com_banners_clients and this was creating the issue.

I simply deleted that row and it worked for me. You can check its level and if you will fix the levels then the issue will be resolved.

Note : deleting this row may effect only one thing that you will not be able to see sub menu in Banner component at admin side.
