Is there a limit somewhere that would stop blogs from showing up after a certain number or a certain date?

http://www.utne.com/blogs/blog.aspx?blogid=34

Should archive back until October 2007 (but as you can see at this link, it only archives back to January 2008.

The following article is in the CMS.
It is active.  (see doc attachment for one example)

The URL doesn't even show the article (when you click on it in the CMS) it's just.. empty!

http://www.utne.com/Media/Dear-Hitler-Im-Your-Biggest-Fan.aspx


This is occurring in ALL older archives on this site.
This is not just one article, but it is all articles in all blog topics. The archives are not showing all of our articles. Now, we understand it might be necessary to have a limit on how many are shown on a page (we should control that, though) but the links to the articles really need to work whether or not they are listed in the blog archives.


We are using
7.61 SP4

It also happens in the previous versions.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated,
Kris

Well, I guess I'm going to go ahead and call Ektron support on this.
It's ridiculous that no one can access these blog posts.

Kris

PS
This isn't just a small problem, here is what is missing so far:

Arts: Everything before January 2008 is missing (30 posts)

Environment: Everything before November 2007 is missing (8 posts)

Great Writing: Everything before December 2007 is missing (20 posts)

Media: Everything before January 2008 is missing (37 posts)

Politics: Everything before April 2008 is missing (127 posts)

SciTech: Everything before January 2008 is missing (37 posts)

Spirituality: Everything before January 2008 is missing (35 posts)

Total posts missing: 294

Spent a couple hours with Ektron support on the Phone.

Blog and BlogPost controls seem to be working fine, unfortunately, it's BlogArchive and BlogEntries that we use.

BlogArchive, I think I have figured out, but I'm simply not getting any data for the BlogEntries control.

Since I've worked with Ektron support, I am able to get these controls to mostly work on the development server, but not the live server.

The only differences between Live and Dev is versions and Sync/Load Balancing.

Version 7.61 SP4 on Live

Version 7.61 SP1 on Dev.

I guess I'll be calling Ektron support back again. Maybe they'll have some insights on what might have changed between versions?

So, Ektron, what changed in the blog controls between 76.1 sp1 and sp4?

Like an earlier post said, we can't really rely on the info given out because many of us have already discovered changes that we were never notified about

see post: http://dev.ektron.com/forum.aspx?g=posts&t=25634

I need to know what changed so I can figure out if it's something I need to change in our code or if there is yet another Ektron bug with the blogs.

Thanks,
Kris

Wow.
I'm sure enjoying this conversation I'm having with myself...
It's too bad none of my multiple personalities seem to know the answer to my issues..
(other than the obvious, of course, and I refuse to check myself in.. *grin*)

Kris

PS
Does anyone else have more than 6 pages of Blog entries in the CMS and use the BlogEntries Ektron Control to display them?

Siva is my hero!!! ;)
He is the best damn Customer Support person at Ektron!! (In my opinion anyway!!)

I was finally able to get the support I needed and show him how the blog controls don't work after a certain number of blog entries!

It does look like it's a 7.61 SP4 issue.

Whoo hoo!!!

;)

Just wanted to share, since I'm still having this conversation with myself, I'm enjoying  the heck out of letting my other self know that Siva is on top of it!!

*grin*

Siva! Where are you?
Khurram is confused and I need to know what's going to happen since we do not have a copy of the old version of the DB!

Khurram sent me this:
"Since the out of the box controls are pulling the older posts back, we would have to step through the code to find out where its failing. Without the old database (which you said you dont have anymore) we cant say for sure if it is a bug in that version or not. We can piece the code together little by little and find out at what point the older posts are being dropped."

But it is the out of the box Blog control that isn't working in the 7.61 SP4 version!
We already determined it worked fine in the 7.61 SP1 version!

Help!!
Where are you!!?!?

LOL

Ah, to continue my "blog", Khurram went away and now I have been assigned so someone new. (Who has been updating me... once a week)

It's only been a couple months. Maybe we'll get results finally!! Today we did (another) live meeting and I showed him (again) the problem with our missing blogs. He did it on his own computer with a blog control, and voila! There was the issue (again) right in front of their eyes! *grin*

;)

And now back to your regularly scheduled programming..

Haven't seen the stored procedure yet, but I'm guessing it was something like that.. ;)

I just had a thought. it may be doing a paging so your getting the page 1 list. perhaps see if the control has a paging value? or numbers/page or something.

it may be using this one

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[cms_GetContDataForLanguage]

@inPagenum integer = 1,

@inPerpage integer = 50,

@inContentType integer = 1,

@inFolderID bigint = 0,

@inContentLanguage integer = 1033,

@orderBy nvarchar(80) = 'content_title',

@outTotalPages integer output

AS
which as you can see has paging of 50 so if that is how many your getting then it is probably this function

Actually it was cms_loadteaserbyfolder.

We got the fix (after COB on Thursday, of course, right before a 3 day weekend, go figure) and haven't tried it yet.

that one has a default page size of 250 so perhaps was that the limit you were getting?

Looks that way. ;)
Doin a win-dif and it's those lines that are changed and a folder_type that is checked as well.

Just an FYI from Ektron

"This fix will also be built into our next mainline release, as scheduled, which will be 8.0."

We just upgraded to 8.5 sp1, and are now having the exact same problem..  only 250 blog posts are showing up..  I checked the cms_loadteaserbyfolder SP, but the line that had the page size restriction no longer includes the page size 250 condition..  is there someplace else that could be limiting these?  thanks for any assistance.. 

 

if(@pagesize=0 or @pagesize>250)
2 set @pagesize=250

Hi Jim,

 

Are you using a templated control?

 

This thread might help.

the problem was not so much that it was only displaying 250 posts, as much as that it was displaying the oldest 250 instead of the newest...  I ran 8.5 SP2 this afternoon, mostly to fix the calendar proformance issues, but it also fixed this blog problem..  fyi.

 

thanks

Jim
