Issues with moving Child Categories around and adding new Categories*

edited August 2013 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I am just creating my forum with Vanilla which seems to function pretty well. I have several categories and child categories, but Vanilla has stopped allowing to make any more child categories. When I try to make one a child, and I save, it resets and goes back to the top where it was. I was just wondering if this is normal? Is there a limit on how many child categories you can have? If not then how do I fix this?

    If you use Firefox, open the JavaScript console in Firebug. If you use Chrome, open the web inspector JavaScript console. Look for any errors that pop up after you drag the categories around.

    I have attached the file, because I am really not sure how to read this. I did see error, but I think it was for an if condition.

    That is the JavaScript file with the code, but it's not the error message. You need to copy and paste the error that shows up within the browser console itself.

    I did not get an error. I find I can move and save categories when I delete one of them. I have 38 categories, and I can move them around and save. When I make number 39, I can move anything around, but if I save they go back where they were. Any ideas?

    I've had hundreds of categories and had no problem. Take a look at your category number 39. Does it have any special letters like ë, é, etc. Then take another look in your FireFox or Chrome console, because those javascript errors will be there. (We need to know which browser you use, FireFox or Chrome). Then, last but not least. Try to add that 39th category at the bottom of your Category list.

    Thank you for your reply. Funny thing happened over the weekend. My site disappeared. The provider said they could restore it which did not happen until today. I was trying to see if I can find the error, but it's working now. I am creating category's, and they are saving. I will let you know if I have the issue again.

    Now when I save the category's, they are saving in different orders. I have fix them at least twice before they save in the correct order.

    OK I figured out how to stop the categories from saving in different orders like they were. All I had to do was wait a few seconds after I move them to save. Now they are resetting again when I hit a number of categories. I have made many more without issue since this problem stopped. Now it started again, and one thing I noticed is that it says successfully saved when this issue has happened. When I made the other categories, I was not seeing that. I don't know if that helps, but I am letting you know.

    I still see no errors in the console.
