Purge category, leave 1 post



  • Hello. I will explain what happens with our nodebb installation.

    I was purge a whole category. This still one post remain, but that post is invisible, or no existent. Searching in mongo db for category ID (20 in my case), and deleted these documents:

    db.objects.remove({_key:"category:20"});
    db.objects.remove({_key:"categories:cid", value: "20"});
    

    After remove, home page remain showing one inexistent category:

    0_1528123442621_e544c5cb-36fa-4272-8525-69836539009f-image.png

    This is the html output:

    <li component="categories/category" data-cid="" data-numrecentreplies="1" class="row clearfix">
    	<meta itemprop="name" content="">
    
    	<div class="content col-xs-12 col-md-7 col-sm-9">
    		<div class="icon pull-left" style="">
    			<i class="fa fa-fw "></i>
    		</div>
    
    		<h2 class="title">
    			
    
    <a href="/category/" itemprop="url">
    
    
    </a>
    
    		</h2>
    		<div>
    			
    			
    			
    			
    		</div>
    		<span class="visible-xs pull-right">
    			
    		</span>
    	</div>
    
    	
    	<div class="col-md-1 hidden-sm hidden-xs stats">
    		<span class=" human-readable-number" title=""></span><br>
    		<small>Topics</small>
    	</div>
    	<div class="col-md-1 hidden-sm hidden-xs stats">
    		<span class=" human-readable-number" title=""></span><br>
    		<small>Posts</small>
    	</div>
    	
    	<div class="col-md-3 col-sm-3 teaser hidden-xs" component="topic/teaser">
    		<div class="card" style="border-color: ">
    	
    
    	
    	<div component="category/posts">
    		<div class="post-content">
    			No new posts.
    		</div>
    	</div>
    	
    </div>
    
    	</div>
    	
    	
    </li>
    

    NodeBB 1.9.3

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

    @normando Try to delete it from cid:0:children which is the root categories. db.objects.remove({_key:"cid:0:children", value: "20"})
