Hi guys, I saw someone state in a post that there's a 20 page limit - is this correct? If you have a site large than this - any solution or work around?

Open your RSD project and save it as a new name and you'll have another 20.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

I have opened and am now editing an RLMP file in RSD of 130 pages. This additional page issue needs to be sorted as 20 pages is not much of a website. It's impossible to add extra pages in RSD and once saved in RSD there is no way back if you need an extra page. I caused a big problem when I inadvertently deleted a page as there is no undo or 'are you sure?' question. I then had to start from scratch with the RLMP file.

The menu thing seems a bit flaky, some times it displays as per Steve's video, other times it gives the bulleted list as though it cant find the js data. Currently one of my pages is not displaying the header image in the browser (which has the menu floating over it).

I don't think my mac book pro is happy running such big RSD files (around 1.5 to 2Gb) and is very slow compared with normal. RSD certainly gobble the RAM.

The original post from CoffeeCup stated that the page limit was just for the pre-release ( or early release ) and that you will be able to have more pages when the final release comes out. You just have to work around it till the update comes out. Hopefully, what, soon ?? :cool:

I think I've come up with a work around for the current page limit on RSD. My site is about half way done with 20 pages in RLM. Here's my idea . . .

1. Create a rough layout of each remaining page that I need, without refining very much. Pages can be groomed later in RSD. That will bring me up to about 40 pages done in RLM, the total that I'll most likely need.

2. As insurance I'm going to create 10-20 generic *extra* pages in RLM, with header/footer done, and anything else that is the same on most pages.

3. Open the RLM file in RSD and finish the website. Save as RSD file. As I'm working away, if I find I need more pages, I have the extra generic pages there at the ready. Just fill in the content on one of those pages.

Of course you know as I get most of the way through this scenario, they'll do an update that ups the page limit! :D

I think this works provided you have no responsive behaviour or classes that are unique to your 'part2' bit of th eoverall website. If you do and only copy the HTML file of your extra pages to your server then any responsiveness (obviously) doesn't happen. If you copy the css, js, etc folders of the 'part2' site as well they will overwrite the same named files from the 'part1' bit and you have same problem in reverse.

Well this is what I've observed - maybe I'm missing a trick??
I think the answer is to put 'part2' in its own subfolder. And this is fine provided you know this when you start and code the URLs of links accordingly. I didn't. So now have a lot of places to change URLs to indicate the subfolder etc.

However this appears to have saved my 'bacon'!
For each page in 'part2' (ie in a sub folder) create an html file like this:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Page Auto Redirect</title>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content ="0; url=http://claygateflowershow.co.uk/2015rsdtest/part2/dogs.html">
</head>
<body>
This is an auto redirect page.
</body>
</html>
This one would be called dogs.html and is stored in the upper folder ('part1') and gets excuted whenever a link to dogs.html get clicked. It automatically redirects to 'part2/dogs.html' so goes down to the sub folder. You would need one of these for each page that was not physically in the upper folder / part1 folder. I'm sure somebody more skilled than I with HTML relative URLs can make this slicker!

Equally in the 'part2' folder you will need a redirect for each 'part1' page. eg:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Page Auto Redirect</title>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content ="0; url=http://claygateflowershow.co.uk/2015rsdtest/Index.html">
</head>
<body>
This is an auto redirect page.
</body>
</html>
This is saved as Index.html in the part2 folder.
You can then upload all css, js files from the part2 export into the part2 folder and it works.

If you have a better solution please post it!

Just a thought, when the 20 limit is removed will there be a utility to combine parts of sites, including merging the responsive breakpoints?

I'm only working on the main pages for a few of my sites and then when the page limit is lifted I'll go for the rest.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
