    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.

    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:
    UPDATE xf_thread
    SET node_id = x
    WHERE node_id = y

    Yes, they are indeed in the database. seems like something fairly simple and trivial to implement into XF. thanks for the clarification.
