Ghost sub-forum before 3.2 upgrade?

Post by BoDragon » Sun Sep 16, 2018 8:37 pm

I am upgrading a forum from 3.0.12 to 3.2. I have a ghost forum where a forum and a sub-forum are not to be connected to another forum.

Present:
Forum 1 > Sub-forum 1.1 > Sub-forum 1.1.1 > Forum 2 > Sub-forum 2.1

Dipslayed as:
Forum 1 > Sub-forum 1.1.1 - > Ghost sub-forum (appears as a sub-forum box with nothing)

Intended:
  • Forum 1 > Sub-forum 1.1 > Sub-forum 1.1.1
  • Forum 2 > Sub-forum 2.1 > Sub-forum 2.1.1
The issue has impacted negatively the left/right IDs.

Present:
  • Forum 1
    • Sub-forum 1.1
      • Sub-forum 1.1.1
        • Forum 2
          • Sub-forum 2.1
Intended:
  • Forum 1
    • Sub-forum 1.1
      • Sub-forum 1.1.1
  • Forum 2
    • Sub-forum 2.1
I do not know if the upgrade to 3.2 could resolve that. I have read about the support toolkit that could correct the left/right IDs.

I would start with making a copy of your board.
With that copy you can test as much as you want.

If something goes wrong restore a backup from the database and start again.
In that way your "live board" will be not affected.

It is advisable to make a copy of the board prior to and after correcting the left/right ID and before the upgrade to 3.2?

Also, is it permissible to link to the affected board's forums to identify the error?

Before you do anything make the test board and do all the steps with the test board.
Make notes of every step you do!
You can always give us a link.

This is the forum with the ghost forum:
https://forum.teamdragon.club/viewforum.php?f=856

The forum does not link up one level to this forum:
https://forum.teamdragon.club/viewforum.php?f=851

The five forums under the forum go up to this forum:
https://forum.teamdragon.club/viewforum.php?f=809

This is the forum that has a connection to the ghost forum:
https://forum.teamdragon.club/viewforum.php?f=858

You will notice the "Jump to" menu is out of sync. It appears the left/right IDs would be needed here.
