Limit for Newsletter articles?

Postby LittleStream » Wed Jun 17, 2015 6:33 am

I can find nothing that limits the number of articles in the Newsletter section. Yet I have tried and failed four times to post a fifth article and cannot see it. Is there only a home page for Newsletter? I had no problems with the previous four articles. One of the four articles showing also has an attachment and it is OK. The fifth article was attaching an image. And yes, I updated browser to Firefox, so that isn't the problem. Please advise if there is a limit on Newsletter # of articles? :confused:

There is no limit on the number of newsletter articles that I know of, and I have certainly had over a dozen articles in a single category, so if there is a limit, it is definitely greater than 4. I really doubt there is any limit you'd ever run into.

You could do a simple test for your situation by posting a very simple article with only a small amount of basic text, with no attachments, images, or formatting. I'm thinking it's very likely that will succeed, which would prove to you that a numerical limit is not the problem. Assuming that works, then you can edit that simple article and gradually add in elements from your desired article, saving it and checking it at each step. That would help you determine what part of the article is causing the problem.

Also, you never mentioned what happens when you post the article. Do you see any error messages? Does the system react in any way differently from your previous experience with successful postings? How are you trying to look at the new article?

Are you missing the paging facility at the bottom of the Newsletter? Only a few are shown per page. We have 13 pages of newsletter articles (and we periodically delete older ones). The user interface isn't great for helping you quickly view what's there.
