When searching the classifieds, I can only see one page of the Misc. category. At the bottom of the first page if I click on the "next 40 adds" it takes me back to the first page of Bows for sale. What am I doing wrong?

you are not doing anything wrong. That is the way it has been for wsome time and no one seems to know how to fix it.

You can edit the web address https to get the result you want. You are just basically filling in the variable when you select the link. Example, you want the misc category next 40 items right?

you just need to add

&StartRow=2

at the end of the web address. So it be like this. Then change the 2 to a 3 for next page. the category 6 is for misc item, say you want longbow it would be cateogry 2.

That's genius HuumanCreed! It works for me. I sure hope I can retain that info. Thank You!

I stand corrected. After looking at the coding. you need the 'StartRow' to equal the next 40 items.

So the page default show you the newest 40 items. So to see the next 40, you select 41, then 81, then 121, etc.

"/classifieds.cfm?category=2&StartRow=41"

My apologies.

Which is a clear indication, that it is a simple coding issue of the links. for "next 40".

If I had access to the files, I could fix it in short order.

Took me like 5 minutes to brows back several pages of "next 40". The editing / repair of the links wouldn't take much longer.

Rick, I would love to start a GO-FUND-YOU deal to fix some problems with the WALL! starting with the infamous PM GLITCH!

You guys really think Pat couldn't fix this if he had time? Remember we are likely a big 2-3% of the traffic the Bowsite gets including all the state conferences.

We're just some tiny offshoot which is what most of like in general, so why not here too?

Al least we're not dial-up any now!!!

Like Dan suggests - The LW isn't big enough to warrant the effort.

Wish it was.
