Is this still a problem after logging out and coming back. Not clear what you mean by in navigation. Did you create folders in Controls, where do you get the error?

The forum is Private, can't take a look.

It cleared up right afterwards.  Where I was talking is in the left hand column where it shows the various folders.  They were not showing up there.  I got that error message when I created the folders and then clicked on "update" or "save".....can't remember, but it was in the control panel, under manage folders.

Thank for your response.

Making folder changes frequently takes time or even logging out before the browser catches up, sounds like that's what happened here.

good to hear you're set now ...
