    BUG: SD 2013 Section / Product Lists unreliable

    Bug: Simple Section / Product lists like:
    Code:
    <actinic:block type="EntireSectionList">
    	<actinic:block type="ProductList">
    		do something
    	</actinic:block>
    </actinic:block>
    Are very unreliable in SD2013. Often entire sets of products are missed.

    Demo:
    Create a new site. Into the "Welcome To Our Site" fragment details paste:
    Code:
    !!<
    <actinic:block php="true">$count = 0;</actinic:block>
    <actinic:block type="EntireSectionList">
    	<br /><b>[SectionName] ,</b>
    	<actinic:block type="ProductList">
    		[ProductName]
    		<actinic:block php="true">$count++;</actinic:block>
    	</actinic:block>
    </actinic:block>
    <br />Items: 
    <actinic:block php="true">echo $count;</actinic:block>
    >!!
    This is just a simple loop that displays all Section Names in bold, followed by all Product Names within that Section. A bit of PHP totals the number of Products displayed.

    Now preview the site and look at the home page. All Section Names display but sometimes no / some / all Product Names. Preview again and if you're lucky some more show.

    Another failure mode: Close and restart SD. No Products show. Now open a Section in the Content Tree, revisit the home page and that Sections products may now show, but no others.

    The above was demonstrated using Preview Store but Publish To Web is equally unreliable.

        Hello Elliott

        Fix for the above issue has gone into our next release. All factors going well, we are hoping to have a beta end of this month.

          Any news on this bug? It's still seems to be present in 12.0.3 NLPA

            Should have been fixed in 12.0.2 release notes fixes were "Added new SectionEntireProductList list type, SD-1781" and "Fixed a problem that prevented product lists from functioning correctly within subsection link layouts, SD-1800".

              Hi,

              I was using Norman's code, looking at it more closely I could see that a maximum of 10 products per section were being listed which I assume is down to some pagination variable or likewise

              I was unaware of the new variable being added "SectionEntireProductList". I have now switched to that and it works perfectly.

              Thanks for your time
