The posts are probably still there and you likely need to just re-create the names of your minisites so the articles get matched back up to their parent minisites. Make sure specifically that the slugs of the minisites match exactly what they used to be (make sure the names match too for good measure). Then other parts of the minisites, for instance the ratings and details, will get matched back up automatically if you add those into the minisites, because that information is stored for each post and doesn't get deleted just because you remove it from the theme options.
Since I wrote the last ticket, I've been able to find the articles, but if you click on anyone of them, it says "URL not Found." Any suggestions on how to fix this? I also dont think ratings have been saved.
Rebuild your permalinks which will help with 404s. Go to settings >> permalinks and click Save. Not sure about the ratings thing...
Thanks. I figured out the ratings thing, so I'll just rebuild the Permalinks and I should be good to go.
