My hosting company has messed up my database and parts of the UI in Views is no longer working. For example, in a views pane, clicking on the edit link of the Argument input setting, brings up an empty white box with no settings. This is for new views. Older views are fine.
What is the best way to fix this: Export all the views, uninstall and re-install the Views module and import the views back again or is there a better way? I copied the module (same version) over the existing one but it did not fix it. I am afraid of the impact uninstalling and re-installing the module may have on other modules that provide views or depend on it.
I am not even sure the problem is with Views. I noticed the issue when I went to the pattern page of URL aliases and it was all blank. I uploaded a backup copy of the database and all was back to normal. Since then, I have done extensive development work and going back to an even older database backup would set me back substantially. That's something I would like to avoid if at all possible.
Any advice you could give on this would be greatly appreciated.
