Joomla 2.5 menu sorting does not work (solution)

After upgrading from joomla 1.0.15 to joomla 2.5 the menu sorting stops working. Faced with this on the third migrated site. Cures are very simple. You need to query the database to reset the output order of the menu. To do this, you need:

1 – enter PhpMyAdmin
2 – select the database from the left column
3 – click on the ‘SQL’ tab (the very top menu)
4 – write a query in the query input window (a big white text field). what kind of query see below *
5 – press the ‘start’ button (depending on which version, it can be ‘OK’ or ‘go!’)

*In the 4th paragraph, enter the following query string (including quotation marks), substituting your own values:

UPDATE `database name`.`table name` SET `ordering` = ‘0’

After substituting the values, the page will look like this, for example:

UPDATE `skobki`.`j25_menu` SET `ordering` = ‘0’

Once you run this query on your database, the menu sorting problem is likely to disappear.
If the sql query didn’t help, try clearing the cart, removing any deleted menu items from there. To go to the cart in joomla 2.5, at the top in the output options of what is shown in the admin select: state selection -> cart.

I hope this article has helped you. Please leave comments! 🙂
