How To Reset Display Count in User List? Too many users!

Post by zpaul2fresh8 » Sat Jul 31, 2021 9:04 pm

I need help in resetting the amount of users displayed in the users section of the backend. I changed it from 20 to ALL and it now gives me a 500 error. I'm afraid it's because my user list is so long! Any tips to resetting this value would kindly be appreciated.

The length of the list does not cause 500 errors. Change the level of error reporting in Global Configuration to 'Maximum' to get more details of the internal error.

Weird. I just got back to this and changed the error reporting to maximum and it returned the user display count to 20 and it's working again. I'm not sure I want to change it to back 'All' to test it so I'll just leave it be for now.

Thanks for the tip though!

It resets to 20 after logging out and in again. Try 'All' with error reporting to 'Maximum'

This is set by the Global List Length Option.

Ok will rephrase
After logging out and in again it resets to the default that is set in global config. Try 'All' with error reporting to 'Maximum'
