I am trying to figure out why my Joomla Content Management system is not saving a table.

I am not having a problem saving anything else, except for this issue.  I am not an expert at all in mysql so I am not sure how much help I can be to you in troubleshooting the issue.

But let's try.

First the error:


Save failed with the following error: SQL=INSERT INTO bcio_modules_menu (moduleid, menuid) VALUES (185,0),(185,484),(185,388),(185,0),(185,244),(185,0),(185,407),(185,251),(185,134),(185,0)

Open in new window

I turned on Debugging in the content management system so I am hoping it will be of help.  Attached is a copy and paste of the debugging.

I am able to use phpmyadmin but am not sure where to look to make the fixes.

I of course have a backup of everything, and the site is not live.  So maybe with your expert help we can arrive at a solution.

I did a google search and on one forum I found this snippet which may or may not apply in this case:  "Indeed, that is causing this error. The 258 definitons of the table lacks column "language" which is why you get an error."

The link to the forum page regarding the above is at this link:  Link to joomla forum
