Title: Lost Parent Category
Post by: norm on December 29, 2019, 11:39:44 pm
1. I created a Category called "Member Pictures Temp" with a lot of sub categories for pictures of all our members. Now the Parent category is gone and the sub categories are part of the Main Gallery. What happened? How can I get the "Member Pictures Temp" back? Right now I have about 2200 pictures in the Gallery instead of Parent Galleries and Sub Galleries.
2. How can I back up all my work before I loose everything, tow months work.

Yes.

So just that I understand. You want to have a category "Member Pictures Temp" Then move all the categories https://flypreceptor.createaforum.com/index.php?action=gallery  to that category.
They will then be subcategories under that category.

Here is the story. Yahoo shut down our site, so A member was able to save all our stuff before they shut down. We have this new site, I was not able to put member pictures in their categories as I did not have their password. I created a Category called Member Pictures Temp. From there our members can take their own pictures from Member Pictures Temp and put them in the Category they create for themselves. When they have moved them then I can delete them from Member Pictures Temp. That was working OK, then today things changed.
Is there a limit on the number of Sub Categories I can have in a Parent Category? Does that help you?

There is no limit on sub categories.

You can create upload pictures to a members member gallery directly as well.

I created a new category and moved them all back

Thank you so much...There were over 700 members on the old site, so I am just going to let them create their own and move them as it is a lot of work for me.
Now I need to save all my work on this site, how can I do that?
