Strange catalogue behavior

I created a new catalogue and when I tried to create category in it I could not select the catalogue. There is nothing under each of these two Roots.


I think, maybe there were problems with importing data or smth. Catalogue doesnt seem to work as expected.
Is there a way to clean all the date from all catalogues and to reset to the original data?

A few questions:
  • is this a default catalogue?
  • is this a tree catalogue?
  • Did you mean "I could not select the parent category" instead of "I could not select the catalogue"? If so, what stops you?
  • is this catalogue somehow tied to something imported from phpNuke?

  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Yeh, it was import from nuke-like portal. Probably this caused problems. I managed to delete the catalogue and now it works OK.
