Hi Akeeba,

I just noticed that the menu in Akeeba Backup Pro, after taking a backup manually, is not working.
See the screenshot, red marked area.

Not much of a problem, it just doesn't seem to work.

Best regards, Bert

It's not supposed to work. The entire top menu is inactive to prevent you from accidentally moving to a different page during backup, something which would cancel the backup process. Use the buttons appearing in the main content area of the plugin's interface after a backup completes or fails to navigate to a different page, e.g. the Manage Backups page.

Hi Nicholas,

Thanks for your response.

Ok, that explains why the menu is not working. Makes sense to me.

Thanks, regards, Bert
