Hi folks.

You must be sick of me by now. I've found a problem (unlikely to be a bug as it is an obvious one) with the categories.
The number of entries displayed from each category goes on forever. This is impractical. I can't have 4560 entries on one web page lol. The category page has to be paginated. I assume this is done in ecommerce sites for product lists. It needs to be available for classifieds as well.

This option must be somewhere in the admin zone. I can't find it though. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

It's meant to paginate on 30. This number is not currently configurable without putting a code override in place.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
