XF 1.2 Batch Update Threads - now missing.


Active member
Hi I did a batch update to threads, moving them from one forum into another, and assigning them with a Prefix..

However, I can not see them in the other forum area (I have permission to view all content there).. and when I click the old urls, I get an error.

"You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action."

I am hoping the threads are still somewhere in the website! please help..

Can you look in the database in xf_thread and confirm that the node_id is what you actually expect for those threads? We've moved things around via batch thread updatings without any issues.

Yes I see the node id, it is in a subforum which is a remnant of a vbulletin import.. so the threads do exist :) I managed to put them back. Feel bit dumb now. ;) but, at least found out how to locate where they went via the database.

THank you!!
