Admin Drop Down not complete / v 3.21

Postby mtriehle » Tue Jan 10, 2012 5:12 pm

In the Administrative view (v. 3.21) , the drop down boxes for Primary Creator and Subjects do not show the full list of either. Creator will stop with the last names starting with ‘B’ and Subjects does not show the full listing of subjects in the drop down. Should all of the Subjects/Creators be visible in the drop down? Any suggestions on a fix?

Those are autocomplete select boxes. If you have a lot of names/subjects, you should type into those boxes to filter. The primary creator is populated only with creators you've already selected.

No. There are limits you can raise, but it's generally not a good idea to load hundreds of names into a select box -- it will make the page very slow, and in some instances, time the server out.
