This is following on from another conversation in the Directory theme threads.
When you set listings per page.
Website has 100 pages. Each page has 10 ads. Number of pages for total ads = 10. Max featured on Homepage = 10 as listings per page are set at 10.
When an 11th ad is made featured. Featured ads go on to page two. This is in breach of contract with customer as they have paid to have ad featured on homepage.
I understand each time page is refreshed ads are refreshed to different locations within pages, this means that ad would not always be on page 2 but will also show on page 1.
However this is still breach as there is always a customer on page 2.
Solution increase max ads per page.
Yes this can be done, but every time Max ads per page are increased the amount of pages at bottom gets smaller. Example increase Max ads to 12 per page.
100 / 12 = 8.3. Now website pages on pagination at bottom have reduced from 10 to 8, a total of 20%. This gives impression website is not populated as much which looks bad. Also non featured ads are on page 1 if amount of featured ads are less then page settings.
Why is home page NOT set unlimited featured ads, with page 2 then starting with un-featured with listings per page active...?
