Ok, I see where this is going.
It has always been a separate db from the initial setup. Nothing has changed except that the pics and thumbs for the user have been deleted from the db as well as the category that is still showing up on the forumhome addon. the info is being pulled from somewhere and I can't for the life of me figure out where. I was told to contact the Photopost people after trying to get some help with this for over a month now.
The only reason I offered my db login info was so that someone who knows more about this than I do could maybe figure out what is happening and why. A link will show you what I posted in the pic but won't explain why it is happening.
