i tried to insert a couple of forums into my database programmatically and i was surprised to see that the forums never showed up on the forum index page.
i added entries to the jforum_forums table and i have 5 rows in that table however the forum index page only shows 3 forums. the 2 rows that i added manually were not in the list.
can someone explain that please? [originally posted on jforum.net by test895]

There are a couple of reasons this could occure.
First, for performance reasons, Jforum caches a lot of stuff in memory. Some of the caches are clearable via tha admin screen. However, there are a couple that only get cleared after the web app has been restarted/reloaded.
The other reason could be that the new forums don't have the correct security structures set up. So, jForum "knows" about them, but thinks that you don't have access to them.
Look thru the code on how jForum creates forums to see what default security stuff needs to be set up. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
