Ordering Articles when the number of Articles are > 20

Post by rodspri » Thu Sep 12, 2019 7:45 pm

I am trying to order Articles but have more than 20, so the rest are listed on a second page under Content/Articles.

I can easily order the ones on the first page (or the second page) but cannot change the order an article displayed on one of the pages to it's position on another page.

I remember the old versions of Joomla let you choose how many to display 25 or 50 or ...

Is there any way to display ALL articles or menu items ?

Thanks,
Rod

PS : I'm trying to stick with Joomla, but these type of small problems are wasting so much time.

(a) In the Global Configuration, in the tab Site, under the section Site Settings, you would notice an option title Default List Limit. The default value for this option is 20. You could select a higher number from the dropdown. as it stands now, the maximum number is 500.


(b) If this is need is not permanent in nature, in the screen Articles, you could change the value of the number of items displayed (right most dropdown) from the default value of 20 to All.

imanickam,

I have set the (Global Configuration, Site Settings) Default List Limit to 50, but it still displays only 20 Articles.

Also, I'm not sure of your second suggestion, "in the screen Articles, you could change the value of the number of items displayed (right most dropdown) from the default value of 20 to All."

In Content/Articles the right button is Options on my screen.
In Articles/Options the right tab is Permissions.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks

The Articles screen (Content => Articles) what was referring to is:
