Menus and Cassiopeia Positions-{V4}


When upgrading from Joomla 3 to joomla 4 the menu positions are not always consistent.
Somtimes in the earlier versions menus were located at Position 7
The first part of of the Cassiopeia position are shown opposite.
Note the location of position 'menu'.

In Joomla! 3 the Main Menu might have been as say 'position 7'.  So the menu might not be showing after the upgrade to Joomla 4 as 'position 7' is not defind.

See Notes later about changing the positionfor the main menu
