The menu item “Redirections” is missing in the menu “Components” in the backend, although the plugin is activated. Solution of the problem in this article.



Despite an activated redirection plugin, the menu entry “Redirections” is not displayed in the backend menu “Components”.


Call of the redirection manager with direct URL to works.


Change of the menu type in the database from “menu” to “main”.
This can either be done via an administration interface like phpmyadmin or via SQL script (replace “prefix” with your own, actual DB prefix):

UPDATE `prefix_menu` SET `menutype` = ‘main’ WHERE `prefix_menu`.`menutype` = ‘menu’


I suspect that the problem occurs when parts of a page have been migrated from a version lower than 3.5 or even 2.5. The problem does not occur with complete reinstallations.
