When did your problem begin? 5 days ago. we had been doing some graphics changes and reorganizing of forums and noticed that on our main page, sub forums were moving themselves around. And, in acp, we are UNABLE TO MOVE the forums AS WELL AS in the ACP, all the forums read as if all is well?? Yet they do not match the mess that has occurred on the site.

someone suggested it maybe a problem in my 'view forum' file in the wow template.... is it possible for me to copy and paste fresh code there? OR do you thing the issue is something else?
Please describe your problem. SEe above

I would suggest installing the Suppot toolkit and using the tool which is part of the package to do the folliwing
Fix Left/Right ID's: Repairs the tree structure of the forums and modules.
Note after doing this you will likely find you will need to place your subforums back into their parent forums if any are out of position, but hopefully this will stop the appearance that forums are moving out of position etc..
