[Solved] Missing VM left hand menu in Backend
« on: October 29, 2013, 01:36:02 am »
Probably self-caused, I had a case of the backend Virtuemart left hand menu largely disappearing on a test site. It only showed the Product Category menu item.

My forum search unearthed three similar problem posts:

http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=104329.msg347066#msg347066

I think one of these mentioned the problem related to corruption of the virtuemart_adminmenuentries table, and fortunately I was able to compare the test site table with the live site. The test site table only held one record (the first one,for the Product category item). In my case I was reasonably confident that I could simply overwrite the test site's table with the current live site's adminmenuentries table - and this SQL export and import via phpAdmin has apparently solved my problem.

Being a test site under development it is not clear what caused the corruption. Most of the test site development has concerned Community Builder and its Subscriptions extension but it is more likely related to my testing different access permission settings for different backend users for my client.
