I have repaired and then Rebuilt my database only to have the same triangle come up while totally putting different Event dates around my photos. 

This is Apple for crying out loud.  This monumentally time consuming answer which doesn't work should not be coming from Apple. 

How can I fix this issue once and for all?

I also have trouble dragging and dropping my Albums in the order I want them.

Both these issues are unacceptable coming from a company such as Apple that charge so much for their devices, etc.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    download iPhoto Library Manager - http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ -  and use its rebuild function - this creates a totally new library leaving yhoru existing oen available if youy still want or need it


    And as to Rants - remember you are only speaking with other users here - so they are uncessary and get in the way of us understanding your problem and helping you resolve it

    You are absolutely right about the rants.  Not something I do in inappropriate places.  The two processes took a lot of time and didn't work.


    So doing the same thing with iPhoto Library Manager will remedy this problem?


    How about dragging and dropping Albums where I want them?


    Thank you for your suggestion as well as putting me in check.

    Moving albums is a strange issue that I've not seen and many othr have not but many have


    Try creating a folder and putting your albums in it - some people have foud that to help - you also can use folders to reduce the number of albums you are dealing with while organizaing - no idea what you have but as an eampe if you ha an album for every town you visited on vacation it woudl be hard to manage - if you made a vacation folder with country folders in it an then town folders in the counrty folders all of a sudden you are dealing with a much more managable set of data to organize


    I have not seen a definative answer other than using folders to help


    As to IPLM - almost all of the time it doess resolve things - but even then there are people who had to start over (which is not quiet as bad as it sounds - but certainly not great)


    The real answer is a good backup so when there is a problem rather than cure it you can go back to a good tiem and move forward from there
