Hey everyone this is a weird issue I hope I can get some clarification.

Firstly, this is EE 2.2.0.

One of our pages cannot show entries that have a title that starts with X,Y,or Z. All other letters work. There is nothing complex in the code to exclude any letters or anything like that.

{exp:channel:entries channel="add-job" orderby="title" sort="asc"}
{if job-type == "Full-Time"}

<h4><a href="{title_permalink='/employment/job-detail/'}">{title}</a></h4>
{related_entries id="Willson"}<li> Camp Willson</li>{/related_entries}
{related_entries id="delawarey-staff-contact222"}<li>Delaware Community Center </li>{/related_entries}
{related_entries id="Downtown"}<li>Downtown </li>{/related_entries}

I can take an entry that doesn't work, change the title to "T" or really any other letter, and it will work. When I make test entries that just say X,Y, or Z, nothing works.

    How many entries do you have? I see you have no limit on your channel:entries tag - try adding limit="5000". Dec 2, 2015 at 19:48

    I support what Derek Hogue said; the default limit is 100, so your last 10-15-whatever entries start with X, Y, and Z, but are in the 100 to 115 entry count range. That's why if you change an X to a T, it is suddenly number 80 in the title sort.

Thanks guys! This is the second time the default entry limit got me. I need to remember this.

The solution was, in fact, setting the entry limit to a higher number.
