I believe the tree structure of the forum I administrate on ( has become corrupted.

This issue started I think some time after a fellow administrator created a subforum called "Dark Sapphire" on Fri Mar 29, 2013. Two forums disappeared, and on further investigation they disappeared because their parents were set incorrectly. I attempted to correct the parents, but the forum would either ignore my changes or incorrectly set the parent to something else.

In the admin control panel, whenever I move a forum around or change the parent of a forum, I get unexpected results. For example, I try to set a forum "Server Information" to have the "General Information" category as a parent, but instead it becomes the parent of the "Guilds" forum. Another example is trying to change the listing order of forums, sometimes whenever I tried to make a change it would accept the change without any error messages, but not actually change anything.

The more I try to change the parents of forums the worse things get, so I am very certain there is some sort of corruption. I believe the issue is similar to one posted here ( and that the solution is below:

Use the Support Toolkit to rebuild your forum left/right IDs and see if it fixes your problem:

Thanks for your time,

It says something about phpbb3 that there needs to be a support toolkit
