    Look at the url - get the discussion id - go to your db and make sure it's there.

    Vanilla doesn't just break for no reason. It must be something to do with your server.

    yes I'm finding that more and more to make sure discussion/comment ID match otherwise they go missing, I also believe Vanilla isn't doing a throughout job of cleaning up things in the database when a discussion or comment is removed, had it done this I wouldn't have to be fiddling with the database, it appears to just keep deleted/removed items with no place then their ID's get wacked, it may also have to do with importing from SMF, i think I have it under control all the IDs are happy and dancing with each other ;-)

    Vanilla doesn't remove discussions or comments from the database though. So I think blaming Vanilla for doing something it doesn't isn't going to help you solve your problems. I'd say there are two things that might be casuing your problems: 1. Your imported SMF data. Something could have gone wrong during the migration (mismatching with different IDs) 2. You fiddling a lot with the database.

    so your saying the remove extension removes it from the forum but not from the database ? the smf import may have been the cause, i have it all worked out now, I believe the remove extension should remove it from the database too no?

    the comment removal extension does remove it directly from the db, yes, but it shouldn't cause anything wacky to happen with discussion IDs.
