this is grid field (sorry unrelated to the rest)

wait, is this on a gridfield, or custom frontend?

hmm… I guess if there are less than 100 it might do that?

any reason $list = $list->limit(100); would change the 'view 1-100 of 100' at the top but not have any effect on the number of returned db entries?

Yeah, cant see anything on the CMS though ha.

there’s quite a lot of manual configuration for that one via the cms
