In Joomla 3.2, I have a component with many views. I want to create a menu item that will point to each separate view. For example:

/view1 would redirect to ?option=com_mycomponent&view=view1

/view2 would redirect to ?option=com_mycomponent&view=view2


The issue im having is that none of the views I've created do not appear in the selector when I try to select a menu item type.

Is there a way to get those views to show up in the admin item type selector popup?

Insure that there is a matching XML file for the view in the \tmpl folder:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <layout title="COM_MYCOMPONENT_VIEW_TITLE" option="View">
