Interesting! The debug script worked fine - said I had 17 extraneous
entries. I clicked "Fix it!" and they were duly removed. Now I have only
one entry in Structure. Fortunately it isn't going to take long to
re-populate, but does this happen often? I'll eventually have over 200
pages and couldn't possibly consider repopulating on a regular basis...
It should actually put them back at the top, maybe the data was SUPER screwed. It's supposed to reset your hierarchy for offending entries and usually there's not THAT many that are the issue. It's all clean now though.

Hello. I am having this same issue repeatedly. I have 8 channels
designated as type "Listing" and for 5 of those 8 channels, each
entry's Structure URL gets blanked out every time I reorder pages
in the heirarchy using drag and drop. I cannot figure out any rhyme
or reason to it, but I did notice that the 5 channels for which I'm
having problems have one thing in common--I created them. The other
3, which are not affected by this behavior, were created by the
original site developer. I have inspected all of the channel
preferences to see if there's some setting that is causing the
difference in behavior, but I am at a loss.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what the difference may be so
that I can correct it?
I ran the "debug" mode and received a message that there are no

Ok, well, I figured out something that resolves the issue to my
satisfaction. It turns out that the problem affects listings
without a defined parent. So by going to the page I want to make
the parent and choosing the appropriate Listing Channel, all
Structure Listing URLs within that channel are restored and are no
longer affected by reordering pages.
