Thanks! that was it, I had some custom css that hid the 2nd item in the dropdown menu. That also explains why it worked with the new DB since the custom css was no longer there.
I have recently purchased a hosted NodeBB forum. Amazing system, however I've been unable to change forum base url for already 2 days. I have made that A record in my DNS provider settings and that works fine, however when I visit the forum through my own domain, it says: "Looks like your connection to Maguss forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect."
I think that is related to the fact that I am unable to change the forum base URL. It saves successfully but then every time I refresh and restart the forum, it reverts back to http://maguss.nodebb.com (I want http://forum.maguss.org)
Thank you for any help!
