Hi

I have installed eblah and the forum is about 2 weeks old with about 12 members, about another 30 are yet to register. There are a few categories set up and posts are going OK.

What happened was I had a category repeat at the bottom of the list so it would look like:

1
2
3
4
5
5

So I went into admin and moved board five up one level, this resulted in:

1
2
3
5
4
5

so I rebuilt the forum, no change. Then I tried moving the boards within category 5 around and they multiplied!! at the second attempt it went out of control and created thousands of board entries. I had to give up and delete the category and boards. Created a new category named differently just in case and added the boards back in. Lost those few posts though in there.

1) any ideas on what when wrong?
2) can I delete these boards but retain the posts to add back in?
3) will/can it happen again

I don/t want to get a year in and have all the posts/links/images lost.

This may need moving to the bugs board.
