Upgrading Mahara 1.9.2

I have run some tests on upgrading our current Mahara 1.9.2 installation to Mahara 1.10.2 and 15.04 and in both cases the user 'settings' and notification inbox disappears from the top-right of the page and only the user's name with link to their profile appears.  Also, in 15.04 the top-menu structure to allow you to 'Return to Site' disappears and I have to press backspace on the browser.

Does anyone have any ideas why this could be happening?


Thanks in advance,

Hi Richard,

The menu items that appear are generated initially from the functions in the lib/web.php file eg: right_nav()

But they can be overridden by hooks in the local/ directory if you have a local/lib.php file. eg: local_right_nav_update($menu)

Also the displaying of the menus are done via the theme's templates topright.tpl and navigation.tpl files, eg:



I'd check that the 'returntosite' link is present in your theme's navigation.tpl file

and that the right_nav() function is returning the data you expect
