    Index pages are missing links
    My problem is that the index pages don't have all the links on them to the product pages, despite the fact that all product pages are produced correctly.

    I'm using the "Auto-Create New Template Using" option with one of my fields called "name". I use this same field to create the detailed pages in the option "Name based on contents of field" and 143 detailed pages are created, showing that 143 correct "name" fields exist.

    11 index pages are created correctly, based on another field, but they don't have all the links to the detailed pages on them, even though each index pages mentions 143 records at the top. When I create just 1 index page, all links are included.

    Any ideas what might be happening?

    Thanks.

    The solution to this was to order the database by the field I'm creating the index pages on, otherwise as WebMerge steps through the database, this field changes several times and WM just keeps overwriting the index files.

    Yes, currently WebMerge processes records in order, so you'll want to use its built-in sorting to group related items together.

    For the future I'm considering dynamic record access which would allow WebMerge to do that grouping for you automatically, but I'm not yet sure if I can pull that off without adversely affecting performance. I'll let you know what I turn up as I continue experimenting....
