    I upgraded our system from 4.4 to 5.1 and when I'm on the backend, I see the attached image. 

    Where does Sitefinity load these items? I've tried going to http://localhost:60877/sitefinity/content/forums but I get a 404 error.

    Is there a place in the database where this is stored that might not have been updated? The only file I see in the entire project that contains the word "forum" is the App_Data\Sitefinity\Configuration\ForumsConfig.config file. The contents are below:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <forumsConfig xmlns:config="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration" xmlns:type="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration:type" config:version="5.1.3450.0">
        <notifications newPostNotificationTemplateId="2749c96b-6fe0-4796-828c-086d4fc928dd" newThreadNotificationTemplateId="f05b4fe5-752e-4fe4-b41c-69c81b73e424" />

    Hello Miles,

    Try to restart the Forums module by going to Administration->Modules. Click on the Actions menu of the module and hit Deactivate,then activate it again.

    You can also do this in Visual Studio, by going to App_Data folder\Sitefinity\Configurations->SystemConfig.config file. Locate the following line:

    <add version="5.1.3450.0" name="Forums" />

    and delete the version, so that it looks like this:

    <add version="" name="Forums" />
