Is there a limit on enteries for a single directory?

I have a directory I am using your software, listmanager, to manage. I purchased the 0.3 version and recently discovered the 1.X version. Per your instructions, I exported the directory (almost 1500 entries), uninstalled the old, installed the new, and imported the data. Unfortunately when I imported the data, nothing appears when I view the directory from the front-end. The back-end shows the data. I removed the menu, re-created the menu, and several other things; but could not get the directory to appear. I opted to create a second directory with the same layout, which has 11 fields/columns. As I was manually entering the records, I noticed the directory was showing the records on the front end. I attempted another re-import. I was refreshing the directory on the front-end while the data was being imported and I could see the listings grow. When the import finished, the directory no longer showed on the front end. I began deleting 20 rows from the back-end. I deleted about 60 rows and noticed the directory appeared on the front-end. I began manually entering the deleted 60. I think I manually entered about 30, refreshed the front end, and the directory no longer appears. I went back to the back-end and deleted 40 rows and the directory has re-appeared. The data I am entering is nothing unique--i.e. name, street, city, state, zip, country, phone, E-Mail, web, and fax. The only thing I considered was a limit of your software.

Any help would be appreciated.

List Manager doesn´t have any limits. But maybe there are other limits in PHP: max_execution_time, memory_limit,... You can access to your server log to see if there´s any error. In case PHP were applying any limit, it appears in log file.

Sorry for the delay. Thanks for the info. The site is hosted and it was easier to ask you the question than the other option. I did manage to get copies of the logs and there was a PHP memory limit issue. Even though I'm displaying 20 rows a page, it seems List Manager is downloading all 1500+ entries, which was causing the memory limit issue. I edited the List Manager file and set the memory limit to a -1 since I don't have access to the PHP.INI file.

Thanks for that.
