Page2cat [catlist=xx] works but only displays one page of post excerpts

Hi,

This had come up in the other thread about this plugin. But it might have gotten lost. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas about why this is happening and what to do about it. Even if it means a different approach to solving the problem. (a different plugin?)

I've got 40+ posts in a given category. Using the [catlist=xx] short code I have a listing of post excerpts showing on a page. I love this idea and have used it a bunch of times but never with so many posts. So, only now do I notice that only a portion of the posts display on a page. There are navigation links which suggest that one should be able to go to another page of posts. But when you click on the link it just displays the first page again. I put a category link in the sidebar and it all works as expected from there. So it appears to be something about the plugin.

Is there another way to get the same result? Use of a page as a header for category posts?

Here's the URL where you see the problem:

Thanks!!

I see the problem you are talking about. It looks like a flaw in this plugin and unfortunately it looks abandoned. I'm taking a look at the plugin, bu t be aware I'm not a plugin coder.

The code in the plugin needs to act like 'The LOOP' but it ust restarts each time it is run (each new page display) but I'm going to look at it a bit more...

It would be so cool if you were able to figure out the flaw. I'm SO not a coder of any sort. I have looked around to see if there are any other plugins that do the same thing. I found this one which seems to serve the same basic function:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...ategory-posts/

But it has other issues that I don't know how to solve either. The Page2cat plugin works perfectly for me EXCEPT for that wee flaw!! Let me know what you come up with. :-)

OK I found this plugin which is supposed to work with the Category Page plugin:

http://categorypageextender.wordpress.com/

According the plugin developer you have to add

PHP Code:
<?php if( function_exists(page2cat_pages)){ page2cat_pages($post->ID);} ?>
to the page.php file below the loop. I assume that means I need to put it on the Content Below the Loop section of the Options section????

Well I did that (and made a 'connection' as I thought I was supposed to) but nothing is displayed on the page. :-( Any thoughts?
