Categories/forums/posts number reset?

Post by Renarion Arenimon on October 19th 2011, 4:13 pm

I have decided to repurpose one of my old forums that died two years ago. So I picked a new theme, tweaked some options, and also wanted to get rid of all the old stuff as it was really in the way. The problem is the following:

I have deleted ALL of the categories and forums through the "Categories and forums" section of the administration panel. However, for some reason unknown, the forum statistics still shows the old data regarding the number of forums and posts! Shocked

I realize that some variables, like the time since forum was created, has to remain. But from where is the statistics getting the old feed if I deleted everything, and even created a few new categories and forums?



Thanks.

What exactly is resync supposed to do? Because I did it two times however the problem persists. I found this link while searching for a solution: http://help.forumotion.com/t96589-forum-resync-isnt-working

I dunno about time zones or why should it matter for resync but I might try it. I have created new categories and topics after deleting everything and prior to resync. Does that matter? Maybe I should delete everything again and try.

Ok, but Resync does mean a reset of all topics and forums? Does it also delete existing content or just resets the number? There is no help text displayed under the option for us who never punched the red button yet.

I will post any changes here when there are some. Thanks.
