I think I made a mistake in reordering some pages in Content Manager. In particular, I had a series of pages enumerated:

7
7.1
7.2
7.3
7.4
7.5

After attempting to move another page into this hierarchy -- really, what I wanted to do was to replace 7.3 -- I ended up with this series in content manager:

7
7.1
7.2
7.4
7.5

So, 7.3 is missing; I can't find it anywhere else in the hierarchy, even when I "expand all" in content manager.

Please help me to recover "7.3" and its content. Would updating the page hierarchy on the system maintenance page help? Or make matters worse? Could I fix this by editing the database?

Thanks for your help.

Using CMSMS 2.2.3.1

Unfortunately, updating the hierarchy had no effect on this situation. The "missing" page (7.3) may still exist -- because when I tried to create a replica of that page and use the same page alias as the original, that alias got a "-2" automatically appended to it, to avoid duplicate aliases.

??? Did you perhaps rename 7.3 to something else?

Or...

Try to work out the content_id of page 7.3: Assuming they were created in order, edit page 7.2 and look at the URL, something like:

.....com/admin/moduleinterface.php?mact=CMSContentManager,m1_,admin_editcontent,0&_sk_=ec45059d6d79c259f50&m1_content_id=31

See the number at the end? Add one to that and go to that page to try to find your content. Once you have found it try to work out what happened, e.g. look at the parent of the page.
