Has anyone experienced Menus reordering themselves in Joomla 2.5 ? I have had that happen several times and it seems unlikely it's a hack.


I believe this was a bug when migrating from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5. Whether this is the case for you or not, try the following:

  1. Login to PhpMyAdmin
  2. Select the database that is associated with your Joomla site
  3. Click on the SQL tab
  4. Copy the following database query (change xxx to your own database prefix)

    UPDATE XXX_menu SET ordering = 0

This should reset the ordering for you.

Note: Once done, make sure you have the latest version of the Joomla 2.5 series (2.5.28)

Hope this helps
