Long story short: the Discourse I’m currently working on is quite old. Further, it was primarily run by people who did not understand Discourse, and so many things were deleted, unlisted, moved, etc. that shouldn’t have been, and are now causing complications.
I want to “fix” the broken categories - mostly those with deleted/unpinned description topics. I’m looking to do the following:
- Rename broken category.
- Create a new category.
- Recategorize all topics from broken category to new category.
- Delete broken category.
- Repeat until all broken categories are deleted.
Which leads me to:
- Can I bulk recategorize topics without causing it to be logged? I don’t want most topics on the site to have an edit, nor do I have time to hide the revision for 1,000+ topics.
- Is there a better way to fix old “broken” categories?
