Limiting Portal Block Entry

You can limit the number of entries in a Portal Block for each individual portal block in the block menu. The default is specified in the value of $_CONF['syndication_max_headlines'] (in Site: Syndication in the Configuration admin panel or in config.php, depending on the Geeklog version you're using).

In really old Geeklog versions, you can limit the number of entries by changing the value of $maxheadlines in function COM_rdfImport($bid, $rdfurl) to any number that you want.

Reloading Portal Block

After changing the limit, the portal block will not be updated until the next RSS update which by default is set to 3600 seconds/1 hour (specified in lib-common.php's function COM_rdfCheck). If you want to see the portal block updated immediately, you can go back to Blocks under the Admins function, select the portal block that you want to reload and save the portal block again.
