    Hi Team,

    I have been experiencing a weird issue for the last three days. I have a sitefinity website that I originally developed on top of Sitefinity Beta, then upgraded it to Beta2 and now to the official build.

    On my development machine everything is working properly. When i deploy the application, i notice that the background of the menu does not show and also i can't see the Search Indexes under Administration ... I have compared the menu to the one i have on my development machine and it's obvious that this is the menu from the RC release or beta2.

    When i open the website i can see in the meta data that the this is the standard edition .. 

    What could be the problem ?

    Hello George ,

    Let's try the following. It seems that the configuration is not updated. To enable the search module - go to ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/SystemConfig.config file and modify the search module entry as bellow:
    <servicesModules>
        <add name="Search" />
    </servicesModules>

    Then restart the application this should reinstall the search module. Check if Administrations>Search and Indexes option is visible.

    To fix the transperant menu:
    1. Download the attached file
    3. Backup your Project
    2. Extract the file in \ProjectName\Sitefinity folder
    3. Login to Sitefinity as admin
    4. Browse the WebForm1.aspx page (http://localhost/ProjectName/sitefinity/WebForm1.aspx
    5.Then restart the application this should fix the menu

    Hi Sonya,

    Thank you for getting back to me. The code fixed the transparency issue in the menu ... thanks :)

    However, i checked the SystemConfig file and i noticed that the Search service module exists and also the NewsLetter module exists but they are not appearing in the menu although they do on my dev machine.

    I tried removing the entries, restarting the application then adding them again and restarting ... didn't work ...

    Hi George ,

    Please replace the Search service module in your config file with the code I sent you or delete the module version. This will register the Search module and should fix the problem.

    Kind regards,
