I’ve got myself into a bit of a weird situation and I’m more than happy to buy a full 3-month support contract just for this one fix as it’s been plaguing me to no end and is likely the fault of my own stupid mistake when setting up the forum.
The situation is I’ve got a zombie category that can’t be deleted, or seen by users, but can occasionally still be posted to:
I originally just gave up and renamed the category “delete_this” (now named back to “uncategorized”) and did my best to hide it, but it seems to be some primordial super-special-please-don’t-touch-this category and I think I need direct surgery to the underlying installation now. I’ve forgotten all the stupid hacks I might have done to it making this probably a little hard to debug by conventional means. I can’t even just switch it back on to visible, it doesn’t let me edit the visibility settings like it does for other categories.
At this point I’d pay for a contract just to get this one self-inflicted bug fixed. I can throw in a tip for prompt support if that helps.
