Joomla/error: JTableMenu:getNode

May 16, 2012 by ross
Hello all
I upgraded my joomla 1.5 to joomla 1.6 with jupgrade. Initially everything went very well. The menus were also transferred, because they were in a different order as the original, I decide to remove the existing menu and create a new one. Now, when I tried to create a new menu item, I got the following error:
Save failed with the following error: JTableMenu: :_getNode Failed –

can someone help me fix this please? I would really appreciate any help

To solve this problem do the following;

Open “phpmyadmin” (Wampserver: quick button or http://localhost/phpmyadmin).
 Click on the tab ‘SQL’
Execute the following query (Copy the query and paste it in the textbox.)
INSERT INTO `DATABASE_NAME`.`j16_menu` (`id` ,`menutype` ,`title` ,`alias` ,`note` ,`path` ,`link` ,`type` ,`published` ,`parent_id` ,`level` ,`component_id` ,`ordering` ,`checked_out` ,`checked_out_time` ,`browserNav` ,`access` ,`img` ,`template_style_id` ,`params` ,`lft` ,`rgt` ,`home` ,`language` ,`client_id` ) VALUES ( '1', '', 'Menu_Item_Root', 'root', '', '', '', '', '1', '0', '0', '0', '0', '0', '0000-00-00 00:00:00', '0', '0', '', '0', '', '0', '0', '0', '*', '0')

 Edit your “DATABASE_NAME” in the query
Click on the button “Go”

Go to the administrator panel of joomla.
Menus --> MenuManager
Select all menus
Click on the button ‘Rebuild’

Hopefully this will help
