Category Lists are too Long on Homepage

Post by SeansList » Wed Mar 07, 2018 2:03 pm

Hi,

I am new to Joomla 3.8.5 so all your comments and help will be greatly appreciated.

My new website is up and running but the asthetics do bother me, I need to limit the number of sub categorys which are listed on my home page, it would be nice to have say 6 sub categoreys listed and then a user could see the full list when he or she clicks the See All Ads button.

Please have a look at https://seanslist.co.uk and you will see what I mean, the Motors section alone is way too long

Thanks in advance

go to your menu item and TAB "List-layout" See "# Articles to List" which is per default "10" Seems you have set this to "All" so you do not get pagination. Change to 10 or 20 and you get the pagination

Leo,

Thank you for your reply

I cannot find List-layout or Articles to list in my admin pages

Do you know where List-layout is normally, is it under Extensions or Modules or Plugins or Articles ???

Sorry to sound so dumb but this is my first venture into Joomla

My site runs on Joomla 3.8.5

Regards

I wrote: "go to your menu item " (which is in your menu manager and select the menu link)
