I was doing some cleanup on my feeds, fixing a few URLs, renaming folders, moving sites between folders, deleting now-empty folders. Everything was fine until I moved a nested folder to top level (right-click folder, select “Move to folder”, left the select dropdown at default “Top level”, and clicked “SAVE”) and it just vanished along with all its sites.
I received an email “Backup OPML file of your NewsBlur sites” from email@example.com but I think this happened before I moved the vanished folder and I assume was triggered by one of the (empty) folders I actually deleted. (It includes a site that I edited before moving that folder, but with the old URL.)
I tried adding a new folder with the same name as the disappeared one and it has strange behavior. It’s shown in the list as not containing any sites, but when I click on it I am shown items from multiple feeds - it looks to be the same set of items I see when I click “All Site Stories”.
Since I have the backup XML I can presumably recover the missing sites into a new folder but I’m concerned about this ghost folder that might somehow be colliding with the actual top level folder? Not sure how to handle this.
