Categories names got messed up

Postby zvit » Thu Feb 08, 2018 10:08 pm

How do I fix my Categories names that got messed up. When I change one, they ALL change to the same name. There are also GHOST Categories.

Go to PEP Options > Advanced > Import PEP data from Firefox. At the bottom of that screen you should see a button labeled Rebuild category database from pastetext. Clicking that button should rebuild your categories.

I just did export data and copied it to a text file. The data was XML format so I just manually fixed it and re-imported the XML data and of course it was fixed.
Your way sounds simpler so I'll keep that in mind if it gets messed up again. Thanks!

Technically it's JSON format, not XML. But JSON is editable also. Glad to see you were able to fix it!
