This one is kind of tricky.
I am trying to build a 2-column list that will show all the articles in a given section.
I want both columns to be roughly the same height.
<txp:article_custom section="given" limit="TOTAL_ARTICLES_IN_SECTION(divided by)2" /> <txp:article_custom section="given" offset="TOTAL_ARTICLES_IN_SECTION(divided by)2" />
Is it possible? I’m praying for a PHP miracle

What on earth is TXP:count?
Quite a few people have identified it as a global variable, but nobody knows what it does…
So you can try this
<txp:asy_wondertag><txp:article_custom section="given" limit="<txp:php>echo round(getCount('textpattern', 'status>4 and section="given"')/2);</txp:php>" /></txp:asy_wondertag>
Where do you see txp:count?
On a side note I noticed that getcount (line 326) and safe_count (line 226) perform the same action in txplib_db.php. Is there a reason for both?
Interesting, so if it’s actually displaying the article, then something is happening with the article_custom function. If you changed tag to just the simple
<txp:article_custom section="given" limit="20" /> does it show articles from only the “given” section?
so it looks like
<txp:count /> actually calls the php function count(), so it doesn’t really do anything. I couldn’t find a place where
$pretext['count'] every exists. Maybe it was deprecated.
Yup..just tried a basic article_custom like you posted and it works as expected. My problem might be due to limitation of the wondertag plugin. Sencer mentioned that it wasn’t guaranteed to work in all scenarios. I’ll post a crosslink in his thread and see what he thinks.
Thanks again for that code… I would not have known where to start!
It turns out my database needed some table repair. It works beautifully now
You my friend, are a genius!!!
