    I have a DNN site handed down to me . I have updated it from 7.0.4 to 9.1.1.

    Now I face a problem when i move to 9.2.X ,which points to my menu module Inventua,(see the error below).

    1) What do I do to make the move? 

    2) Is there a better replacement menu module and/or a possible tutorial?

    3) The menu appears on all the pages on my site via a skin , But I am not able to locate how exactly this is working in the Code. Since I have to change the menu most probably, I would like to know how to get this change in all the pages. 

     at Inventua.DNN.Modules.SideMenu.Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)     
         at System.Web.UI.Control.OnLoad(EventArgs e)

      So, the cause is probably the deprication of a lot of code.
      My first thought is that you don't use a module for a menu. Usually, the DDR menu is part of a theme. You can use Bootstrap instant, NVQuicktheme, Mdesign etc...https://dnncommunity.org/Forge has several themes that can help you out.

        Inventua is still around, and they seem to have a version of SideMenu that works for DNN 9. You might want to contact them for options (http://www.inventua.com).

        I have done several upgrades during which I replaced SideMenu using the DDR Menu as a simple replacement. That went quite easily. Depending on how it is implemented on your side, you can use DDR as a theme object or as a module. You can use the Tokens for the DDR menu quite easily.

          That was the first menu I used in DNN as menu at the time horrified me.
          I'm amazed they have a DNN9 compatible version, but as you stated, replcing it with DRR is quite easy.

            In the future, you should try to follow a workflow to avoid issues like this during upgrades.  The presentation linked below outlines our general upgrade process.  It's been quite successful for us over the years. :)
