Re: rebuilding topics DB
Why did you have to use phpMyAdmin to delete posts? That makes no sense. Are you unable to log in?
Have you tried the ‘Recount’ feature? bb-Admin > Site Management > Recount, that is, if you can log in, but I should think you can since that would be the more serious problem but I haven’t seen you post about it.
I suggest that you mark spam posts as spam in future. At least in Kakumei there should be a link to do so at the bottom of the post, by the post age, if the user is logged in and of high enough authority.
