    I like the idea of the post list widget. But I am only seeing 10 lists in the selection drop down when trying to use it. Is that an actual limitation? Or do I have something misconfigured?

    Hi,

    Weird but for some reason we are only showing published lists on widget dropdown. I will update the plugin so that all lists are shown there.

    Thanks. But I do not even have all published lists. I have close to 60 published lists, but only 10 show up.

    I am sure those 10 lists have publish status. The other 50 might have pending/draft status.

    I have 65 with ‘published’ status and 7 that are ‘draft’.

    That’s not a expected behavior. It could be that any other plugin is overriding posts_per_page query variable. Usually, it display all published list.

    OK. I’ll try disabling other plug-ins as I get a chance/

    I deactivated all plug-ins other that w4list, and the same problem persists.

    This still does not work. So should I just assume that it is defective?

    FWIW, it appears like it is the last 10 list I have created that are showing up.

    Have you made any progress on this? I know you spent some time on my staging server. But I have heard nothing from you.

    @sajib1223 While I know you have the best of intentions, it’s forum policy that you not ask users for admin or server access. Users on the forums aren’t your customers, they’re your open source collaborators, and requesting that kind of access can put you and them at high risk.

    If they are paying customers (such as people who bought a premium service/product from you) then by all means, direct them to your official customer support system. But in all other cases, you need to help them here on the forums.

    Thankfully are other ways to get information you need:

    You get the idea.

    We know volunteer support is not easy, and this guideline can feel needlessly restrictive. It’s actually there to protect you as much as end users. Should their site be hacked or have any issues after you accessed it, you could be held legally liable for damages. In addition, it’s difficult for end users to know the difference between helpful developers and people with malicious intentions. Because of that, we rely on plugin developers and long-standing volunteers (like you) to help us and uphold this particular guideline.

    When you help users here and in public, you also help the next person with the same problem. They’ll be able to read the debugging and solution and educate themselves. I’ve deleted your offer to login to your user’s site. I’m am 100% sure you mean well but please never ask for credentials on these forums.

    Now for the why: The internet is a wonderful place full of very nice people and a few very bad ones. I’m sure everyone here is very nice however, by giving some ones keys to your house you are trusting they wont steal anything. Likewise the person who takes the keys is now responsible for the house FOREVER.

    If something was to go wrong, then you the author may well legally become liable for damages, which they would not normally have been as their software is provided without warranty.

    Please be aware that repeatedly asking for credentials will result in us escalating this to the plugins team.

    It’s never necessary to do that. Here’s why.

    There are many ways to get information you need and accessing the user’s site is not one of them. That’s going too far.

    You get the idea.

    Volunteer support is not easy. But these forums need to a safe place for all users, experienced or new. Accessing their system that way is a short cut that will get you into real trouble in these forums.

    Hi @sterndata ,

    Thanks for informing me. I will definitely obey forum guidelines.

    Cheers.

    @edjarrett Updated block editor list dropdown limitation issue fix.

    Thread Starter edjarrett

    (@edjarrett)

    Unfortunately your fix does not work. While the list displays when viewed as a published page, in the editor all I see is a ‘Loading…’ message where the widget is loaded and nothing in the block section.

    Thread Starter edjarrett

    (@edjarrett)

    Not sure what has happened here. None of the replies on this topic are visible to me now. This issue still unresolved. The fix actually made it worse. Where before I could see 10 lists, now I can see none. And lists that are already linked in the widget just display “Loading…” in the editor. Fortunately they still seem to work on published pages.

    Note: once I submitted this the other replies showed up. But I don’t know how to delete this one.
