We have a weird problem where at some point our menu styles dropdown has disappeared from all menu items. We can see it in our old site, and we're pretty sure it used to be there, and we're not really sure when it disappeared or how to get it back. We can change it in our template by assigning it, so that's helpful, but for one page it's not working and we wondered if this was the reason.

In any case, we want our Joomla! working properly.

I have checked Admin Template Overrides there are none for menu items. I have used Joomla to reinstall Joomla using the Joomla updater.

Missing Teamplte Style Option

With the Template Style option

  • Can you open your browser inspector and search for template_style_id to see if it's hidden or actually non-existant?

  • From what I can see, this parameter only gets hidden if the menu type is alias, or if alias_redirect is set to 0

  • Weirdly it's on all menus that we've checked.

  • I can confirm it is not hidden, it is not there at all

  • Can also confirm no admin menu template overrides

Ah ha we uninstalled Regular Labs Advanced Template Manager which solved the problem. Clearly it takes control of the templates so that makes sense.
