Hey,

I just installed a fresh test MyBB.
I successfully went trough the merge wizard.
In the control panel I can see all my users, forums, posts from phpbb

But when I view the board as a user I only see the default forum.
Any idea what I need to do to "publish" my merged forums and make them visible?
Even when logged in as admin they are not displayed, so I don't think it's a permissions issue; but we never know.

Have you used the latest merge version? Have you run the rebuild & recount tools? Have you rebuild the caches?

Hi,
thanks for the prompt answer.
Yes I just downloaded MyBB and the merge tool 30 minutes ago.
I did all the cache rebuild and recounts, but I can do it again.
The weird stuff is that the merged forums are simply not displayed but in the CP.

Here's the report of the merge, it all looked good.

Weird, when I use the "Lite (Archive) Mode" I can see all my forums and posts.

More info.... still I'm puzzled.
So I was using the "Lite Mode" to check the data when I noticed the link "View in full mode".
So from one of my forum I clicked on that link and bam I could browse the forum no problem and see all data.
Only when I click in the breadcrumb to the home of the forum I reach again the page where only "My Forum" is displayed

OK it seems that the root cause is that my top forums do not have any parent and this is why they are not displayed. Via the CP I created a new category called "Root". I then edit the first top level forum (called "General") that was merged with the wizard. I set the "Root" category as parent of "General" and suddenly the forum shows up on the homepage...
