Custom Module: Import label blank

I have a custom module “Properties.”

I am trying to make them bulk importable. I have edited properties.php to importable = true.

I have edited menu.php to include the below.

if (ACLController::checkAccess('prope_Properties', 'import', true)) {
$module_menu[]=array("index.php?module=Import&action=Step1&import_module=prope_Properties&return_module=prope_Properties&return_action=index", $mod_strings['LNK_IMPORT_PROPERTIES'],"Import", 'prope_Properties');


The problem is that the sidebar menu, there is no text in the “Import” field. There is just a “Down Arrow” icon. It should be labeled “Import Properties” but it’s blank.


  1. Add label at language file
'LNK_IMPORT_PROPERTIES' => 'Your label',

in the array $mod_strings. As it is your custom module you can put it to main file or best practice is to put that file in custom directory.
2. Do quick repair & rebuild from Admin
