NOTE on how to delete orphaned/phantom topics

Post by bmchenrync »

I'm at latest updated 3.3
At some point on one of my subforums i got 8 phantom/orphaned messages
  • when i select the message, it says 'message does not exist'
i did some searches and couldn't find an easy way to delete
I serched the ACP and couldn't find a way to resynch/clear up

  • Use the MCP
  • got to the forum with the orphaned/phantom topics
  • select them
  • Delete them
  • Voila!
Problem solved
I post up because i could find folks asking about this issue and no SOLUTION
