Gaps

Bollyver 2 years, 7 months ago at Mar 29 14:56 -
Is anyone having issue with gaps in their list? mostly just sections with 3 pics in a row. Everything looks in order on the "rearrange page" but they do not display in order. It's not a big deal unless you have OCD like me.

Bolly,

The only thing I can think of is that the rearrange page and the edit page don't always necessarily "agree", that is to say that how each is configured affect the other, sometimes in unexpected ways. Image lists with 3 pics in a row are either using the default setting or the "3 pics" setting is chosen. (this being done on the rearrange page) However, those pics will not display in the order you arranged if on the edit page, in the Appearance section, Display Mode default and Default List Order are not selected. Here, anything other than default will override your settings on the rearrange page. If you have pics distributed in more than one section on the rearrange page, check that the sections have pics in multiples of three (i.e.-3, 6, 9, 12 etc) if default is chosen. Otherwise, there will be a one or two pic gap between lines.

Another example of how the arrange and edit pages affect each other: A list made with all default setting left in place will show 30 pics per page. I like using 2 columns in my lists. On the edit page, changing the Appearance to 2 columns (or whatever number you prefer) and leaving the rearrange section setting to default will still result in 30 pics per page. However, changing the rearrange section setting to 2 columns, and the edit page Appearance section back to default will result in 42 pics per page!

I see the gap you are talking about on your list Your barn door is open. There are 58 items in that list, and your gap happens after the 42nd pic. That's where the listal page break is. Unfortunately unavoidable. Because of that issue, I started limiting my lists to 42 pics before beginning a part 2 follow on list. Just to avoid that gap and clicking the "load more items" button.

Good luck!

Thanks Red, you're a lifesaver.

I should have made the connection that as my list were growing is when I started having problems. On my smaller list I went with (default) on the edit page and they look a lot better. On my list that are over 42 pics, I cut them off at 42 and added an "un-named" section for the over flow. Thanks again for the help, your list always look great.
