Reset Menu Ordering Column 0.0.2

This simple little component will fix a bug stemming from Migrations from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 using redMigrator, jUpgrade or J2XML.

All three of these migrating scripts use the column "ordering" in table "_menu" from Joomla 1.5 and fill it with numbers. But, Joomla 2.5 uses the columns "lgt" and "rgt" for ordering of the menu items.

This creates problems - like, when you update Joomla 2.5 or use the Reset Button in Menu Items, it will restore the order dictated by these numbers in the column "ordering", rather then by columns "lgt" and "rgt".

Joomla 2.5 does not by default empty the "ordering" column, it simply seems to ignore it.

Our little component will simply reset the "ordering" column to zero - which it should be, so Joomla 2.5 can reorder permanently. After installation, reorder your menu items the way you need them, and for testing, hit the Reset button - you will see that the settings stick. Now you can unsinstall our component.
