The forums are working perfectly, but recently we've come across a broken topic. The whole topic is "corrupted" in that it doesn't load the right sidebar and as an admin I can't click on edit or delete on any of the replies.

Any advice or suggestions on how I can fix this?

Hi @marsm,

Try to Edit the First Post, then find the HTML which has been inserted in the post, you have copied and pasted some text or IMG with its HTML, which is not allowed.

@chris , I can't click edit anywhere on the post, including the first post. Can I find the dodgy code if I find the post in phpmyadmin?

@marsm,

You can find the first post in prefix_wpforo_posts table, edit it, make the changes only in body field, save, and then press Delete all caches button from wpForo > Overview Admin page.

I found the post and removed the HTML via phpmyadmin.

all working now. Will watch out for dodgy HTML embeds.
