Looking for a way to show all entries on the main page.
I thought I had seen this somewhere but cannot find it in the documentation or forum posts. Seems like a shortcode will do it but can’t find one.
I have 181 entries and currently the main directory page shows 20 per page and 10 pages.
I’d like there to be one page. In particular this is because the client group would like to be able to sort by department and have the sort be done based on all the entries.

However, since the Search feature works against the whole dataset, is there a way to make the Sort of a given field work against the whole data set?
Maybe I can switch the view to have it display by Department which would be alphabetized?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Which template are you using? All templates but cMap you would use the
page_limitlimit shortcode option, like so
page_limit=50or disable pagination with
If you are using cMap, you can use the Template Customizer to change the pagination settings (you can use the shortcodes if you wish, but the customizer is preferred).
I very highly recommend display that many entries at once. It’ll make the page load much more slowly. This is not a bug or limitation in Connections. The same would happen if you tried to display that many WordPress posts on a single page. Depending on your server/web host, I would recommend more than 50–100. You could try it and see if the load time is acceptable to you.

Not sure I really understand the question. You can change the default sort order field. I think that is what you are asking. See the doc page for the order_by shortcode option.
Hope that helps!03/30/2017 at 2:23 pm #418201
This worked perfectly. Page load for 182 is just fine. I am using the ListView template you sent me directly.
