Pagination for Zentools2 list

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I know this can be done, but I just can't remember/know how to do it.
I have created a list for a particular Joomla category (called News). The Zentools2 content source us Joomla (not Joomla categories).
It seems I can only get one very long page listing all the news items.
Just remind me, how do I go about having say, 10 items per page?
Have a look here: sedaexport.com.au/news

Hope you can help,
Thanks, Nick

Hi Nick,

What is the article limit number?

Paul,
I've changed things around - still using Zentools2 but this time actual List option.
I've made the item count 12 for the News category.
I noted that if I change this to 6, there is no pagination - only 6 show - the rest of the News items are gone.
Is there a way to have a second page with the other 6?
(From memory, I think the Joomla category list has pagination)

Hi Nick,

Sorry with my answer above I was thinking of filters

You have the pagination layout selected and the Joomla as a source and in the content tab you you have news category selected?

Paul,
I have List layout (not Pagination - which I thought was only for images)
Joomla as source
Content: Categories - News

As mentioned earlier, I'd like to be able to immediately display say the latest 6 news items on the page, and the remainder to be accessed on page 2, 3 etc.

I think I might be using the Zentools2 List for a purpose it was not meant for.

I've decided to use Joomla's Category Blog layout. Seems to do everything I need, but not as pretty as Z2.

Thanks for looking into it.

I should have thought of that - you could style it a little

With pagination it needs to be selected as the layout - that is the only way it works I'm afraid

You mention above that I could style it a little...
Could you direct me to some information on how to do that.
For example, I'd like the heading for each News article to be H2, or H3, and not H1.
There must be an easy way to change this - but I need to target only the news category article headings.

If its a case of adjusting the font size you could either do a global site wide change via the heading tags template settings

or

add a css line to a custom css file e.g.

.blog h1, .blog h2 {font-size:2em;}

for example
