XF 1.5 category to forum

#1
After an import from VB two of the forums became a category, i think due to the fact they were forums with no children in VB. now in XF they show up as categories instead forums and i can't access them. they have threads and posts so is there a way to convert a category to a forum? doesn't seem like it's possible through the admin -> node manager.

thanks.

No, it's not possible to do so.

Have you confirmed that the threads are actually in the categories?
If so, you could use a query to move them:
Code:
UPDATE xf_thread
SET node_id = x
WHERE node_id = y
