    Webmerge - New Index Pages Question..
    My site has 12 categories. Each category has it's own index pages (10/page)... When I run a data set of 3000 or entries, it creates the detail pages themselves into categories fine. But, when the index page locations change, the 1st record for the new index pages always disappears:

    record 1 a/index
    record 2 a/index
    record 3 a/index
    record 4 b/index
    record 5 b/index

    That record #4 either never appears on the index page for its category or it gets stuck all by itself on some strange index.28 that's not even sequential...

    Awesome program, but this issue is making me nuts!

    First, is this in v2.5b or in v2.4? It's helpful to be using v2.5b because while it's in testing we have the opportunity to address issues more quickly.

    In this case, however, I wonder if it's just a case of sorting the data. Take a look in the WebMerge Help section on the Sources tab; at the bottom of that Help page is a note about sorting and why it can be important for generating some types of index pages.

    If that doesn't resolve the problem please give it a whirl in v2.5b, and if the issue still persists or you need additional assistance just let me know and I'll see what I can do to get your site running.

    It's v2.5b. I'll try the 'sorting' option...

    The pattern seems to be: If Category#1 has a large amount of index pages generated because it has a lot of values (eg 20 index pages), & Category#2 doesn't have as many (eg only 15 index pages), the first record of Cat#2 will appear in Cat#3 as it's own page eg....index20.php...

    Sounds confusing. I may have to sort my categories by # of records per category? Though, I don't have a value for that...

    The number of records shouldn't matter. If you look at the Congress Contact DB example that ships with the product, some states have only one congressmen and others dozens, yet those "categories" (states) remain intact. So I think to diagnose what you're seeing we may need to look elsewhere.

    What field are you sorting by, and how do you have the file naming and page break options set in the Index Pages tab?
