This tutorial will show you how to solve the duplicated menu title issue while creating a Text Separator menu item.

Joomla 3.x Troubleshooter. Duplicated menu title while creating a separator menu item

The issue may happen when you need to create a non-clickable menu item (text separator).

Log into your Joomla admin panel. Go to Menus, then open a menu you need. Click Add New.

Select Text Separator menu item type.

Then, check your website. You see that your menu Text is duplicated:

Joomla_duplicated_menu_screen_1

To fix this issue, go to your Filemanager and open /modules/mod_superfish_menu/tmpl/default_separator.php file.

Here you will see line 23. Replace this line:

<span class="separator"><?php echo html_entity_decode($item->title); ?><?php echo html_entity_decode($linktype); ?></span>

with this line:

<span class="separator"<?php echo html_entity_decode($item->title); ?>><?php echo html_entity_decode($linktype); ?></span>

Save your file then.

Also, you can just replace your default_separator.php file with the already edtied one: download.

Check your site please. Menu item text is not duplicated now:

joomla_duplicated_menu_screen_2
