So it seems, Magento really hates me, and the feeling is starting to get mutual.
While trying to fix permissions earlier today, my magento admin top navigation links broke.
Upon checking out source, I realise the issue was because the JS file path is wrong & thus causes the inability to load JS. Which is turns, breaks the navigation on the Admin Page.
Solution: Disable Merge js files on Magento.
- Login into phpmyAdmin
- Locate table: core_config_data
- Locate row: dev/js/merge_files (if its not on the first page, click to look for it in the next few pages)
- Change the value of dev/js/merge_files to 0
Voila! Done! Hope it helps!
If it did, please let me know in the comments section below.
