Menu Problem-No parameters and TYPE defaults to ADMIN regardless
While setting up an EXTERNAL LINK from the MAIN MENU, I was unable to add a link location (url). The field isn't locked, and I can put my cursor there, but am unable to type anything.
Then, when I save the new menu item, the type becomes ADMIN regardless of what I select. I have tested on a few other menu item types and all seem to be reverting back to ADMIN.
I am running site installed Joomla 1.5.6.
Further, I was going to see if there was a possibility that a module or component was creating a conflict by disabling and/or uninstalling any that were unused. Then I found this problem: From the EXTENSION MANAGER-->INSTALL/UNINSTALL menu, COMPONENTS, MODULES, PLUG INS, LANGUAGES, TEMPLATES all return the following error:
500 - An error has occurred.
View not found [name, type, prefix]: admin,,installerView
Additional information gathered: I copied the entire joomla site and the database to my local machine, and all functions fine...
I also reinstalled (imported) the backup database back onto the server (host), still same problems.
Now I'm really at a loss...
Thanks in advance
