Editing a comment in a thread that was heavily modified

edited March 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm trying to edit a comment in a thread that has had a lot of modifications in the sense of deletion of whispers, comments etc. Whenever I try to edit the comment (it's the first comment in the discussion) it says: Some problems were encountered The requested discussion could not be found. Does anyone know what's wrong or how to fix it?

    Hmm i think we had a similar problem a log while ago, it was due to haveing alot of whispers, and it messed up pagination.
    Mark should read this because i wouldn't know how to fix this.

    This wouldn't happen to be a forum that's been migrated from phpbb with Mini's migrator? I know that it can sometimes make mismatches between comments and discussions which can mess up things when you want to edit them...

    No, not really. There were a lot of whispers and replies in the thread and they have been removed.

    y2kbg may be on the right track. That bug has been fixed in Vanilla 1.1.2, but it may still be affecting the discussion if some of the whispers were deleted on a older version of Vanilla. Try deleting and then undeleting any comment in the discussion (make sure that you have the preference to see deleted comments turned on!) as that will force any version of Vanilla to re-sync the discussion count. If that doesn't work... my guess is the discussion ID somehow got dropped from the comment, in which case the only fix would be to connect to MySql through something other than Vanilla and edit the comment there.

    Thanks Wallphone. I un-deleted the comments and then deleted them again, but still the same result. I will now try deleting the discussion and then re-post it as I have upgraded to the newest Vanilla version. Let's hope it'll hold then. (it's a topic I need to edit almost daily)
