We have a OOB blog site that was working fine until last week. Overnight, the Category lookup field in the Posts list began referencing the Category list from another blog on a different, unrelated sub site. I'll try to illustrate the structure below.
Sub Site A-1
Sub Site A-1-1 (Blog 1)
Sub Site B-1 (Blog 2)
The Posts list in Blog 1 has a lookup field for Category, which now references the Category list from Blog 2--it
should reference the Category list from Blog 1.
I came up with a solution to save the site as a template, alter the reference GUID in the manifest.xml, and then re-launch the site. However, this is not a perfect solution because:
- Upon re-launch of the blog site, all comments and posts lose the previous Created and Modified By information and instead point to my account because I loaded the site. The only way I can think to circumvent this issue would be to modify the list reference
while the site is still live, but I'm not sure how to do that.
- I still don't know how this problem happened and how to avoid it in the future.
I've been researching the problem for several days and I can't find any rhyme or reason for how it may have occurred. I was hoping the community might have some ideas for me
