Known Joomla bug (unfixed yet): menu display and params in backend need fix in joomla
#4 Updated by krileon about 9 years ago
The below extensions appear to have the issues resolved according to user; worth reviewing:
seblod 2.0 RC3 "Form (Content Type)... List (Search Type)"
YJ mega menu "it is a plugin, that work with youjoomla templates... and have a lot of configurations it self"

The above examples all use J1.6/J1.7 MVC "views" folder in component root, which doesn't work if a metadata.xml (works if menu attribute isn't supplied) is provided in component root. However, the MVC for displaying menu parameters changed from J1.5 to J1.6 meaning it won't be cross compatible forcing components into providing 2 different packages. The menu item also continues to revert back to the first item because menus.php is looking for "view" and not our specified "task". Without fixes in Joomla I can't see a viable solution for us to implement as <state switch="task".. does nothing in J1.6/J1.7. Further testing shows that if the MVC "views" is used then the URL is appended with "&view=" instead of "&task=" so CB would also need to be updated to handle that as well.
