disappearing images

A few minutes ago I moved two genus-level pages to other places in the Guide:
Anterastria was moved from Acronictinae to Eustrotiinae > Eustrotiini, and Euscirrhopterus was moved from Acronictinae to Agaristinae, as per the classification at All-Leps.

When I navigated to the pages to add comments to the affected images, the images didn't appear under the Browse, Info, or Images tabs. But they show up when using the Search function, so they're still in the Guide somewhere - I just can't get to them in the usual way.

The bug is back
I moved the genera Osmia, Heriades and Hoplitis to the recently created tribe Osmiini page and the images stayed behind.

Our understanding is that there is
some sort of automatic update that occurs about once an hour that resets all the images to where they belong. Check in about an hour and see if it is all ok.

This is a bug in moving guide pages. I fixed Anterastria by hand. What is the node number of the Euscirrhopterus image?

I am working on fixing the bug.

There are three linked at

I think this is fixed now.

bug still present
I moved the tribe Caradrinini from Hadeninae to Xyleninae, as per the classification at All-Leps, but none of the included images appeared in the new location.

The 13 images shown here remained stuck at the end of the Hadeninae Images pages until I edited and re-submitted each image; then they appeared where they are now. No "Moved" comments were automatically generated, so I still don't know what caused the mysterious comments mentioned in this post.

happened again
Just now I moved two more pages and saw the same problem: no images appeared under Browse, Info, or Images tabs - so I moved the pages back again.

This must be a recent bug because earlier this year I did some large-scale moving (multiple families at a time) and all the included taxa and images moved along with them.

images still disappearing
As described in the comment here, I renamed Anasimyia to Lejops (Syrphidae) and moved the species pages that were under Asemosyrphus and Polydontomyia to the Lejops page. Now the images don't appear at the new location when the Browse, Info, or Images tabs are clicked.

The Lejops curvipes image is # 33712, and the three linked Lejops polygrammus images are # 42513,14,15.

Fixed those
The way to do it is to edit the image- even without making changes. When you click Submit, the software makes all the necessary connnections and everything is back to normal for that image.

It's a nuisance to have to do that, but at least there's a workaround until the bug is fixed.

Thanks, Chuck
Last night I moved a genus page from one family to another, and the two images on the included species page didn't show up until I edited them and resubmitted, like you said - then they were fine.
