    Maybe you have your forums with the option "Show threads from last 10 days" or something like this.

    In the Forum Manager set the "Default View Age" to 'Show All Threads'.

    If you have access to your db you can do all at once with the query: UPDATE forum SET daysprune=-1;

      Thanks maloplas, but i check this and is not the problem. The most strange is that all this forums that loss the post are up forums ( not forum with subcategories ) ... There are any option for view errors in import system??

      Thanks to all for your help

        You did run the update tools you are supposed to run from the Admin CP after you completed the import?

            More news...

            I canīt find the post in the forums ( empty forums ) , but in the activity i can see post for this forum and i can enter to view???

            Another more info, in this forums that i canīt view the post, also is missing the moderator for this forums.

            Any idea??

              Interesting... If you view a "missing" post via the activity stream, then click on the forum name from the breadcrumb under the navbar, do you go to the right forum? Is the post still missing?

                Hi Joe.

                Finally i can find the solution by myself. Problem ( i donīt know why ) is that impex canīt import a root forum, but import a subforums, so i create a new category and move there all forums, so the import works correctly.

                Thanks so much to all people to try help me.
