Total post count somehow got mixed up

Hi everyone !

Okay, I have absolutely no idea what happened, so I will start from the beginning:

(This is about 2 or 3 days ago)

We were remodeling the website, and I had deleted around 12 forums and 4 or 5 categories containing about 5 posts. The next morning, the post count went from around 860 to around 750. It also went from 49 topics to 48, then back to 49 later that day. I had thought a thread was deleted, so I searched my site's forums but no such thread was found. The total post count is still at around 770, with all the new posts we had made since then.

Now, here's where it gets interesting:

That day, the total post count by the site's post counter was 754 I believe. I did the math and added up all the posts in each forum together for the real post total, and it was 864.

That's when I realized something was surely wrong with the site itself.

Any ideas at all as to how to fix this? Not sure if this is something I'd be able to resolve in the CPanel or if I'd need The Godfather's help because this seems to be a problem in the interal site itself.

Thanks in advance,

------Ryan

Hi !

Did you try to synchronize you forum ? (Admin Panel > General > Forum > Configuration > Misc Options)

This problem seems to be a little strange if you're sure that you hadn't synchronized your forum. Here are some ideas from me:

1. What if you moved the topics to another forum/category when deleted the forum/forums? If yes, you have two options:
a. Or you search the topics and delete/trash the topics;
b. I'm not sure about synchronization, but seems that, that one working only with private messages.

2. A backup maybe helps you. Rolling Eyes

I tried to resynchronize my forum last night, it didn't fix the problem.

I didn't move the topics because I didn't think they would be of any use to me. /Fail on my part, lol.

I'll search them and see if I can still find them.

And I reeeeally don't wanna do a backup and lose everything I've done since then. Rolling Eyes

Okay, I haven't tried to search the topics yet, I've been kinda busy with other stuff on the site plus school soo yeah.

Does anyone have any other ideas as to what to do? I don't really think searching/finding the topics again will really DO anything to help with this, so I'll do it when I have the time just to save the topics, haha.
