SS 3.1.2

When I click the "Sync Files" button in the Files section, i get:

"Validation error: Validation error writing a Page object: Page type "Page" not allowed as child of this parent page. Object not written."

I tried removing all files from the assets folder, but still receive the error.

Any Ideas?

Found a Page page-type that was a child where it's parent had $allowed_children declared. As well as two obsolete page-types, so those pages just needed to be published using different a page-type.
