Problem with Category Shortcode (11 posts)

    I have a site that is under construction for an artist who makes wearable art. I have four categories of products setup: 'Bags', 'Cuffs', 'Neckpieces' and 'AndBeyond'. I have setup pages that include the Category Find option that looks like this:

    [eshop_list_cat_tags type="category_name" find="neckpieces" panels="yes" form="yes"]

    In this particular case, I have eight (8) neckpiece posts entered into the system and categorized with the "neckpieces" category. When I go to the Neckpieces Page, six of the eight products are shown, but not the last two. So I went in and modified the short code to read:

    [eshop_list_cat_tags type="category_name" find="neckpieces" panels="yes" form="yes" records="8"]

    Nothing changes. Only six items are displayed and no pagination options are shown. I modified the short code again to:

    [eshop_list_cat_tags type="category_name" find="neckpieces" panels="yes" form="yes" records="10"]

    Nothing changes. Only six items are displayed and no pagination options are shown. I modified the short code again to:

    [eshop_list_cat_tags type="category_name" find="neckpieces" panels="yes" form="yes" records="4"]

    This time I see six item panels on the page, the line above reads "Displaying 1-4 of 6" and now I have pagination options to view page 2, Next or View All.

    If I click to view page 2 or Next, I see "Displaying 5-6 of 6" and then four item panels including the last two from the previous page and the two that were not shown before. If I click "View All" I'm back to seeing only six item panels with "Displaying 1-6 of 6" and no pagination.

    I don't know why this isn't working like it should so any help would be appreciated.

    Can you replicate the problem using the Twenty Eleven theme with all other plugins deactivated?

    And please do not post the same question more than once. Duplicated topics will be deleted on sight.

    Sorry about the duplicate, but I thought my original post didn't get posted since I couldn't see it in the list of comments for eshop. I'll try turning off the theme and plugins and see what happens.

    This topic wasn't tagged for eShop, so we missed it earlier today. You can also post on the plugin's dedicated forum on quirm.net - which is a lot quieter.

    Ok, I switched to Twenty Eleven and all of the items displayed, but the specific page reverted to the default template instead of full width. All plugins were still activated.

    I'm using the Modest Theme from Elegant Themes but what I don't understand is how the theme is affecting eShop's category query? Any ideas?

    Unfortunately, I've worked for almost a year with this client getting a theme designed for her that she liked and wanted to move forward with so I really need to try to figure out what is going on. Can you provide any guidance as to what I should be looking for?

    Ah... I'm afraid we don't support any of the themes from Elegant Themes. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking on the Elegant Themes forum.

    After having used eshop for several years with various themes with no problem and even donating previously to the development of eshop, it is very surprising to me to learn this late in the game that Elegant Themes is on your no-fly list. I'll try your suggestion, but you can't provide any more details on even what might possibly be the problem nor even what I could be looking for?

    All of their themes are behind a paywall and we have never been able to see them. We never even got a look at the eStore theme that was built on the back of eShop! What we have been able to surmise is that some of their themes either conflict with eShop or, in the case of eStore, try to "use" eShop in a way that just causes problems.

    So we are left with no choice but to say sorry - we can't support those themes. :-(

    Can you at least add that note to the conflicting plugin section of the online documentation? I checked that page first before even attempting to use both of these products at the same time and had I known back when I started developing this site, I definitely would have made other choices. I'm now within a few days of going live and there's no way I can at this point.

    By the way, if you want to log in and look at the theme code on my site, you are more than welcome to do so.
