Title: Articles per page limit / RSS Articles Limit
Post by: alpha10 on February 14, 2007, 08:24:36 am
I may have found one more bug - under Settings and Articles per page limit / RSS Articles Limit. I had to change the numbers many times until the system saved my preferences. For example I wrote 20 in the Articles per page limit, but it didn´t change, then I wrote 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 until I reached 20 before it was saved correctly.

Hope you understand what I mean.

Well, this has been sort of reported earlier as functioning as this:

Article limit can not be set to equal or above RSS limit. If you have an RSS limit set to 5, and you want article limit to be 7, you need to first change the RSS to something above 7 eg 8, before you can set the article limit to 7... Try it you'll see....

Ok, I just tried it - you´re right...

No bug, maybe it should be written in the admin section, so people know about this before changing the default values.

Thanks

Ahhh, well everythings relative.. Some would call it a bug, some would not... Personally, I'm aware of it and don't suffer from it, so... no bug for me, but I do get your point... As , I'm sure, will the developer team.

What I believe we need is a FAQ or some sort of documentation to higlight these kind of usability 'issues' :)

Well... there is an FAQ section under development as we speak... and a whole lot more... but I can't say anymore than that right at this time. As you can imagine... there is a huge amount of information collected on these forums, and collecting it together... summarizing and making sense of it... and organizing it in some reasonable order... it a big job in itself... not to mention that there are only a few of us working on it and... we do it in our spare time. What "I beleive we need"... is some more helpers. :)

[1.5.31] Just about the numbers, your Article Limit can be higher than RSS limit! Try it! Put 2 to Article Limit and 1 to RSS limit... There is only one limitation of Article limit... Article Limit can not be higher than count of articles in category with most articles...

EDIT: something wrong, I can put now 35 for articles limit and 3 to RSS limit and its working.... tsss

RSS Limit - sets the number of articles displayed on feed
