Lifestyle2 ThemeMagic & MegaMenu not working

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

This is a new install (or almost). I can't figure out why both those functionalities do not work.

I've joined pics to facilitate the discussion (and hopefully, the finding of solutions!).

Thanks!

Do you have a link for the site?

It is not a LIVE site. I am (desperately!) trying to get it up to snuff before publishing the thing.

The front-end looks okay. But, since I can't do anything with the template (new at all this T3 Framework and what-not), I had to resort to the t3_bs_blank template. At least, the site is operational. Ugly, but working.

this might help?

I get this message whenever I try to use ThemeMagic:

You have navigated to another page which using another template or your current preview page does not support LESS. ThemeMagic has been temporarily disabled.

Are you using the latest template download and what version of the T3 plugin is running?

Do you see any errors in the console window while in Theme Magic?

I just built this site 2 days ago, with the template + extensions offered on this site.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled T3 (a couple of times). No change. Version 2.4.3

The only error I get, is the one mentioned above. No errors on the front end either.

For the second issue is that the mega menu isn't available?

Is the mega menu button not shown?

I'll try and chase down the other issue

Exactly, Paul. The button isn't there (under the General tab, I believe... it's shown in the pic... where the button should be, there is white space). It appears on another template I have installed (t3_bs_blank), but the function doesn't work with that template either. Thanks!

Do you see this button - this is where the T3 mega menu is accessed from in more recent versions of T3

Regarding the theme magic can you try installing the standalone template - you don't need to un-install anything

Just download the template from the download page and install as per the normal Joomla installer

I'm going the backend/old fashioned route. For now.

Which means... coding!

I want to make the background white everywhere, and get rid of the borders (except for the picture borders... I like those!). I've been able to change some of the colours in one of the themes.

Is there a way to "code" the Mega menu? Maybe a model I can inspire myself from. Thank again.

Do you have admin tools installed?

A user with the same problem today resolved it by changing the admin tools settings

Actually, I do (the free version though).

But... thinking about it... I installed AdminTools to SOLVE problems with ThemeMagic. So, I had the issue BEFORE installing AdminTools.

With your version of the admintools does it have the WAF options?

WAF stands for Web Application Firewall

It contains settings that can stop thememagic from working if set incorrectly

No Paulus, my AdminTools does not have that WAF option.
But, as mentioned, I do believe the problem was there BEFORE I installed AdminTools.

If I uninstall it, do you think it will help solve this?

ALSO...

I found this tidbit of code where, maybe, could be a solution? It's in the DEFAULT_OVERVIEW.PHP file in the ADMIN directory of LIFESTYLE2.

Note: I switched out the normal < and > for [ and ] because it wouldn't let me post the code.

[ !-- hides option for mega menu -- ]
[style]
#jform_params_navigation_type-lbl,#jform_params_jblogotype-lbl,#jform_params_enable_logoimage_sm-lbl,#jform_params_enable_logoimage_sm {display:none}
[/style]
[script]
// Hides the legend associated with the Mega menu
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery("#navigation_params legend:first").hide();
jQuery('#jform_params_non_responsive_width-lbl').parent().parent().hide();
});
[/script]

Are you able to get this online any time soon so we can take a look at the site?

Please open you browsers developer tools and check the console tab when loading the megamenu screen.

You should see an error message relating to the problem.
